The Bell is an independently owned Victorian pub on the fringes of The City on Middlesex Street, the home of Petticoat Lane Market and Jack the Ripper territory. Just a stones throw away from Brick Lane, Spitalfields and Shoreditch and close to Liverpool St and Aldgate underground stations, easy to access from all over London.

The Bell is well known for its mixed crowd of local residents and office workers, but don’t mistake this for “just another city pub” because it’s far from it. Eclectically decorated and boasting 2 function rooms including a games room with pool, darts, table football and a Nintendo Wii…..!

Serving well kept cask beers and a diverse selection of lagers it also supports a decent wine selection, offering the full list by the glass or half bottle, making it a great place to meet work colleagues and friends for a drink. Lunches are dealt with a non-fussy pub menu full of old favourites.

Open Mon-Wed 11 till 11, Thur-Fri open till 12, Saturdays are for special events like our monthly Northern Soul night and Brit-Pop evenings, or if you’re planning a party it’s available for private hire both Saturdays and Sunday. Look out for regular updates and find us on Facebook.
