Welcome to The Bell, Smarden

A beautiful Kentish country pub in the historic village of Smarden

Welcome to The Bell, Smarden

Built in the 1500s during the reign of Henry VIII, The Bell Inn in Smarden is a popular dining destination promising food and drink fit for a King - with freshly prepared dishes served up alongside local ales and lagers from Faversham’s Shepherd Neame.

It’s a charming and traditional country village pub, picture perfect both inside and out. Tumbling hanging baskets and a Kentish peg-tiled roof greet your arrival, while there are oak beams, flagstone floors and open fires waiting just across the threshold.

Indeed, this is a place that offers a warm welcome in more ways than one. Three separate cosy bar areas each boast an open fire, with a large inglenook fireplace and picturesque wood-burning stove making The Bell an ideal escape from the harsh winter weather. 

There’s a large garden, equipped with its own bar and enjoying beautiful views over surrounding countryside - the perfect place to enjoy an alfresco ale or two in the summer.
