Located in the Montpellier quarter, close to the Pump Room Museum and Valley Gardens, the tavern's name refers to the fact that until 1815 an earlier Inn, The Bell existed on the site.

As an independent Tavern group we are able to offer a much wider range of alcoholic and soft drinks than our competitors. We pride ourselves on our comprehensive drinks on offer although we don't sell alcopops! We focus on British Real Ales from smaller independent breweries and also on Continental and World Beers both on draught and in bottle, which we present as our Connoisseurs Beer Menu.
We also feature a comprehensive wine list and offer a wide range of fruit juices, soft drinks plus, of course, freshly brewed tea and coffee.

Our range of Real Ales is predominantly northern based as we prefer to purchase direct from the brewer ensuring that our ales do not spend weeks in transit or sitting in a 3rd party warehouse. Consequently we are supplied by breweries throughout Yorkshire, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, Cumbria and Durham. Our taverns usually feature at least one beer from Timothy Taylor or Black Sheep breweries on a permanent basis, while some have further permanent listings from popular local breweries. In addition, all Taverns offer 3 and up to 5 guest ales from an ever changing list of UK breweries.
