Ding Dong!

The Bell is open again after being closed for a few week to re-furbish, I ain’t been up there yet but i am well looking forward to a pint in there as it is one of my watering holes. From all accounts the place looks good. I shall give it a nudge on my next weekend off.

Their web site has not been updated yet so no pics of the work done but i am sure it will be sorted in the next few days.

Me n the lovely Mrs B are out for a meal down at the Ferry tonight and i do hope the Venison is on the menu,It has been a bit hit and miss in there of late but i do like the place and when the meals are on form they are brill! A couple of bottles of wine help the evening along so a good time ahead.

Anyroad time for a brew so I’m off, Have a good weekend you lot and spare a thought for us that’s gotta work it.

    Always a cracking place to get a beer and the live jazz was always a winner.

    They do have some good jazz in there and even when the students are in town it is a top place i reckon.handy for the last pint before going home.

    Sadly the virtual tour didn’t supply me with a virtual vodka. Looked nice then, must be good now. Jazz pub eh? Maybe stop over the night on my way back from Cappy’s in September- they got any rooms?

    always been a good pub got your regular loons, i mainly go in for them realy, ah and the bell seem to employ nice girls who work behinde the bar as well, think ill have to pop in one nite in the week after work

    and talking about pub grub, when i lived in chelmsford there was a pub called the white heart, they did good food then some reason went very crap even wrote a snotty letter to the top brass, got 2 meals free but even they were shit, so never bothered again

    I wonder if the steps down to the toilet are still as deadly as before?

    The Bell is my favourite pub in town. Looking forward to the refurb also – I hear it’s supposed to be ‘Victorian style’. It was looking a bit tired before and I think it was a good idea to sympathetically smarten things up a bit.

    Bit of history about the old place:
