About The Bell Smarden
Built in the 1500s during the reign of Henry VIII, The Bell Inn in Smarden is a popular dining destination promising food and drink fit for a King - with freshly prepared dishes served up alongside local ales and lagers from Faversham’s Shepherd Neame.
It’s a charming and traditional country village pub, picture perfect both inside and out. Tumbling hanging baskets and a Kentish peg-tiled roof greet your arrival, while there are oak beams, flagstone floors and open fires waiting just across the threshold.
Indeed, this is a place that offers a warm welcome in more ways than one. Three separate cosy bar areas each boast an open fire, with a large inglenook fireplace and picturesque wood-burning stove making The Bell an ideal escape from the harsh winter weather.
There’s a large garden, equipped with its own bar and enjoying beautiful views over surrounding countryside - the perfect place to enjoy an alfresco ale or two in the summer.
