The Bell, E1


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 now 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 and darts.


Things we do —


the games room

Our games room is equipt with pool table, darts board, fusbal table and a SEGA mega drive. You can play your own music whilst you’re enjoying hanging out with your pals. The Games Room is available for Private Hire.

weekend private hire

due to our location on the edge of the City of London we are not open on Saturday and Sunday. It’s not all bad news though, that means we are ready and able to host your private function, birthday, party or event. Get in touch.

upstairs function room

our first floor function room is available for rehearsals, meetings, performances, screenings, you name is, we’ve done it up there. complete with it’s own bar, the space can comfortably hold 60 people standing. Got an idea? Get in touch.  

street art

if you find yourself on an East End walking tour, you’re likely to stop outside The Bell, whilst your tour guide yells at you about Zabou. The side of our pub is adjourned with some rather fetching art work.


open mic comedy

on the first Wednesday of every month, we host some of London’s hottest up and coming comedians, broken up with a couple of headliners. Free entry for all. Find out more on the OMC Comedy Facebook page.

craft beer

our fridges are packed full of some of the finest brews available. We’ve scoured the country to keep it fresh and exciting, you’ll find the likes of Beavertown, Northern Monk, Magic Rock, Tiny Rebel and more…

a proper boozer

we’re not as polished and pretty as some of our neighbours, but we think that’s part of our charm. We offer a unique atmosphere with something different to catch your eye at every turn of the head.


we have teamed up with our neighbours, 1n1 Fashion Pizza, to offer delicious, traditional Italian Pizza, just pop to the bar and order and they’ll run it across to your table. Easy (and tasty).
