About the Pub

Formerly a pub, these corner premises in west Croydon became a Caribbean cocktail bar in December 2019. Bookings are taken for private parties. The original name "Railway Bell" can still be seen in the stonework at the top of the building to the left, and the subsequent name of "Arkwright's wheel" is still visible too.
