Description: The Bredhurst Bell, The Street, Bredhurst, Kent, ME7 3JY01634 232971The thriving village of Bredhurst sits on the top of the North Kent Downs.The village has a population of about 380 people and has had its own parish council since 1975. The village centre consists of a small village green, St Peter’s Church, the village Primary school, and The Bell Inn which has been here since Tudor times. The Bell public house dates from 1500, and was used by the Postal Servicefor bed and stabling during their travels. Nowadays we serve the local and surrounding communities with meals and beverages.We have two bars; a large family bar leading onto a large patio garden and children's play area and an over 18's bar that holds all the charms and character of the good old days.We have an extensive car park at the rear and adjoining field for special events.We serve a wide range of Top Conditioned Cask Ales, constantly changing our selection, so on each visit you have a chance to try a new one.

Very nice little country pub with a good menu for lunch or evenings. Food is very well prepared and home made pie really is home made! Prices are very reasonable too.

First time I'd visited for maybe 60 years when I used to be left outside with a lemonade and packet of crisps...... We only stopped briefly, when passing through, wanting a drink and sandwich. Sandwiches were excellent value - without all the excess salad stuff that so often accompanies them - and the guest Cornish beer was good. I think some aspects of the place haven't changed much over the years - and that is meant as a great compliment - although I never got to see the inside in those days!

My family and I arrived close to the time food was due to being stopped serving, although we curtly told to hurry up and order, we was served food of an acceptable standard.
The surrounds are very nice and comfortable. The waitresses were somewhat more polite than the young blonde man who originally spoke to me on arrival at the bar.

We were all happy with our meals and the cost was very cheap. Really good value for money.

On leaving we did find near on impossible to get any taxi firm to pick us up from there though.
Obviously not the fault of the establishment but worth a mention to those wishing to get a cab home.
