The Five Bells is a whitewashed Grade II listed building that dates from the late 17th century and takes its name from the magnificent bells at the church just up the road. Set in a protected conservation village, it’s handy for the M25 as well as many lovely walks. There are two bars: one is a dog-friendly front bar boasting an original inglenook fireplace; the other is the dining room, leading out to the patio and extensive garden, which comes complete with a children’s play area. The seasonal menu complements the real ales and wines on offer: maybe start with pork belly and crackling with black pudding, or a traditional prawn cocktail, followed by beer-battered cod and chips; freshly-made pie of the day; or lamb hotpot. Sandwiches, baguettes, ciabattas and pizzas are available too, and beer festivals take place at Easter and in October along with regular live music and quizzes.
