The origin of the Bell Inn stemmed from the need to cater for the Traveller of the day back in the 17th & early 18th centuries who used the busy roadway of the time from Great Yarmouth to Bury St Edmunds and on to London.
The Bell Inn was so popular because of its extensive stabling for the large draught horses used for passenger travel and additional mounts available. With added accommodation and popular bar, the Bell Inn proved ever popular.
In the latter part of the 19th & 20th centuries the Bell Inn became the focal point
In the more recent years the Bell Inn is an independent family run free house, with great character and atmosphere. Jordan has been the front of The Bell Inn since 2016, but, independently since October 2021. Going from strength to strength and providing a warm and inviting environment which attracts many friends and local loyal customers. This year sees the Bell Inn awarded the AA Rosette award for culinary excellence
