The Bell Inn

The Bell Inn is a pretty medieval 16th century free house situated adjacent to St George’s Church, in the centre of the small village of Ivychurch. Mark, Vanda and Team extend a warm welcome to their ‘home’ to everyone who visits them. Their real ales and beers have won many awards, including CAMRA Branch Pub of The Year in 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2016, they were also a close runner up in 2012. 

There is a large garden with excellent views of the church tower and their is a pool table in a separate bar

During the colder months a wood burning stove adds to the comfortable pub and what can be nicer than good beer, good food, great surroundings and interesting conversation.


The Bell offers a menu of traditional, mostly home-cooked food, many dishes being prepared to order. They have a standard menu which is available at all times and a frequently changing range of specials. They also offer a range of lighter bites, sandwiches and baguettes for the smaller appetite. You can eat in either the bar lounge, resturant of the garden. In addition they cater for smaller buffet parties by arrangement, or special menus can be ordered for your own function.
