About the Pub

A lively main road pub catering for a youthful clientèle and offering Sky TV and pub games including pool.

Historic Interest

An advert in the The Bury & Norwich Post** on Tue 13 March 1866 lists this pub as part of the sale of <a href="http://www.suffolkcamra.co.uk/pubs/brewery/41">Stonham Brewery</a> together with 26 other premises. The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Bell's license was issued in 1803. My grandfather was a regular visitor to his brother's pub, the <a href="/pubs/pub/450">Cock & Pie</a> where my grandmother was working as a barmaid for the landord, Harry Cooper. Harry agreed to move her to The Bell as his brother, Albert was tenant there & needed help. Both were recent widow/widower in desperate need of a new husband/wife & they soon married - in 1931. (info from Alan E Cooper). The building dates from the 16th century, with 17th & 20th century alterations. Photographs of this pub and more historical information about it can be found at suffolkcamra.co.uk/pubs/pub/590
