About the Pub

The 600 year old Inn is situated in the heart of the settlement, near to the village green & just a stone's throw from the sea. Internally it has many seating areas & historic features. It can be very busy for food at weekends in summer. Smugglers' tunnels between the Bell & the beach have been uncovered, though apparently they have since collapsed. Walberswick can be accessed from Southwold via a footbridge.

Historic Interest

Historically may be listed as a hotel (1912 & 1922). A report in the Ipswich Journal in Mar 1890 states that : An announcement of the death on the 25th February 1890, Sarah Emily Veasy, aged 33 years, wife of Mr A Veasy, The Bell Inn, Walberswick. A picture of past times is painted by a letter written by the landlady to the licensing authorities on 13th October 1955: “Dear Sir, I hereby give you notice that I wish to apply for a music license at Southwold court on Monday November 21st. The reason being we hope to have television in the near future & may sometimes require it in the bar”. Photographs of this pub and more historical information about it can be found at suffolkcamra.co.uk/pubs/pub/984
