Immaculately spruced-up though it is, and while rightly renowned for its cuisine, the Bell remains faithful to its roots as a traditional village pub. This means that, even in full walking gear (dog in tow) you are welcome to drift in for just a pint of Woodforde’s Wherry, or Norfolk Moon Gazer, and nobody will suggest you should be better dressed, or have left Rex in his basket. In a village pub so close to the unspoilt salt marshes of the North Norfolk coast – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – and just 10 minutes’ walk from Blakeney nature reserve, that’s a wise approach. Built in the 18th century, it features earthy, heritage-coloured walls, stripped beams, chunky tables and oak-planked floors, with further character imbued by local artworks lining the walls of the bar and conservatory dining room. On a winter’s evening head for the tables close to the inglenook fireplace. On a Sunday there’s an excellent choice of roasts, but booking is essential.
