    " Went the Lydden Bell for the first time on Thursday. Went for Lunch with two friends and we all had a superb meal, in a great country pub atmosphere, at a sensible price and with genuinely friendly staff. We will most certainly visit it again and will happily recommend it to our friends.
    Keep up the great work. "

    We visited this Pub at Lunchtime following a walk along the nearby white cliffs.
    Fairly unassuming pub from the outside, however lovely inside.

    The food (and service) however was a revelation.

    The menu was a real surprise , the food presentation very good.

    But above all the food was fantastic, far above what you expect in a small village pub.

    We will definitely be returning with friends in the future. "

    Having had wonderful meals at the Anchor inn we expected the same for the sister pub Lydden Bell. We tried 6 times to call and mention our tastecard but were told they do not answer the phone between 3-6... Why!? They open at 6 for food how can you reserve a table between these hours!?

    Waiter was not friendly in the slightest and refused our tastecard because we hadn't called (we had tried!!). The entire place was empty so I saw no reason why they wouldn't accept it. Absolutely ridiculous policy.

    They do not have menus, so customers have to stand to read the menu from the fire place.

    Food was very overpriced and overcooked.

    Waiter stood around the entire time flirting with the young waitresses, entirely unprofessional and not a pleasant eating experience.

    Will not under any circumstances be going back or recommending to anyone. £45 for two overcooked pub meals and 2 drinks. "
