In the middle of the woods at the very end of Withybed Corner, having negotiated a few potholes on the way (after rain!), is a little haven called The Bell; or ’The Rat’, as that is what The Bell is known as in Walton on the Hill and the surrounding areas

You will be made very welcome by Gordon and Linda, the proprietors, or one of the friendly bar staff; offered a choice of real ales, lagers, wines or spirits and, if you feel peckish, there are the usual packeted snacks and from Wednesday to Sunday evenings: hot pies, pasties and sausage rolls. Warm your feet (and your dog!) by open log fires in winter, and relax by the pond in the beer garden in summer, soaking up the sun.

This unspoilt popular village pub is a rarity these days, boasting two small bars (remember public and saloon bars?) and no ‘gastro’ attachment - which is much appreciated by the local clientele.

If you time it right on a Sunday, Linda will ply you with delicious roast potatoes, while on Quiz Nights Linda prepares a choice of lovely home-made sandwiches.

Occasionally there is live music on a Sunday with bands, solos and duos covering Rock, blues, and 60s music.

The Bell, The Rat, call it what you will; but a visit is well worth the effort. Pop in for a pint and a chat with the bar staff or friendly ‘regulars’, sit and relax, and enjoy the past and the present merging.

Sweden v England

Happening on 07/07/2018 [Expired]
