TBI5394A - The Bell Kennett - white.png


The Bell, An Early 16th Century Coaching Inn, was reputably a Frequent Haunt of Highwayman Dick Turpin.  A visiting Medium in 2004 told of a total of 4 ghosts that haunt the pub. An Artist who hangs around in the Old Snug area, One in the Old Kitchen area  & a Mother & Son who haunt the upper part of the building.


As a Family who have resided here on two separate occasions over the years we can confirm to those of you interested that there is defiantly a presence felt on occasions in certain areas of the building. We have had several “experiences”. Britain's most Haunted visited the Inn during 2004 when it was Brewery owned.

Current Ownership

David, Sheena & Philip would like to welcome you to The Bell Inn at Kennett.  


A Brief History.Sheena’s parents Geoff & Diana Smith were Licensees of the Bell in From 1992 and sold the Freehold in 1997.   


In January 2011 After 14 years of neglect it was returned to the open Market with the Building being in a very sorry state of repair. After a 3 Month refurbishment including a total revamp of the kitchen facilities we opened the doors on 2nd July 2011. We have tried to return the building & Bars to its original state as far as possible to show off the beams and fireplaces.


Following several years successful trading The Bell has also undergone a further refurbishment in January 2015 including new comfy upholstered chairs and LED lighting.
