featured ale Red Top
Old Dairy Brewery
Red Top 3.8% abv

Tasting notes : Delicious toffee flavours with a hint of coffee, perfectly balanced against the fruitiness, spice and hints of citrus from East Kent Golding, English Cascade and Challenger hops. Goes particularly well with meat or fish.
What’s the story ? The Old Dairy Brewery was originally set up in an old milking parlour deep in the Kent countryside, near the picturesque market town of Tenterden in Kent, hence their milk themed beer names.
Our lunchtime menu is available between 12 and 2.30 pm from Monday to Saturday, featuring such favourites as skate wing in black butter, smoked mackerel, or cod in beer batter.

History Old picture of The Bell
The Bell Inn has a relatively modern frontage, but a trained eye will discern the inn's Tudor origin. In the time of Queen Elizabeth I the timber framed building was entered from the side, the two ancient doorways can still be seen in outline, whilst inside, in the bars, the original Tudor crossbeams are much in evidence.

Whether The Bell was purpose built as a Tudor beer-house is not known, but it was definitely operating as a hostelry in 1622 when the landlord was William Chambers.
