Now residential, the Bell had a reputation as a smugglers' pub.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Bell's license was issued in 1853. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable.

A Victorian brewery was at this pub.
