A comfortable 17th Century Victorian pub located on a site which has supported licensed premises since 1620. The pub is adjacent to the bus station, close to the town centre and near to the river Waveney, so it is handy for visitors to the Broads. There is a central bar, a side room with a pool table and a separate dining area which doubles as a function room. A paved garden is at the rear and tables are set out in front of the pub in summer months. Wednesday is curry night.

Note

The odd name may indicate that there were originally two pubs on this site, one called the Bear, the other the Bell or Bells.
