The Bell Inn
Good pub grub and great ales in a traditional thatched inn
The Bell Inn is a 17th Century pub, nestled in the North Devon Countryside in the village of Monkleigh. The River Torridge, Tarka Trail and market town of Great Torrington are nearby, not to mention the North Devon coastline. We pride ourselves in serving good pub grub in a traditional setting, with a large garden with fabulous views!
We are open as usual with Covid safety measures in place
Please click the button below to read more about these measures. Please note that we do have to take your contact details whenever you visit and can also only seat groups of up to 6 people for food or drinks.
To book a table, please give us a call on 01805 938285. We have a large garden with plenty of picnic tables if you prefer to sit outside, or a marquee in our garden if the weather is not ideal!
We are dog friendly throughout the pub and have ample parking.
Real ales, good wines, great spirits (and fab coffee!)
Of course a pub isn't a pub without well kept real ales and ciders so we always have a selection available. We're big wine fans ourselves, so we source some lovely ones from our local merchant. Then there's the spirits - we offer a wide range of tipples including gins, rums and some extra special single cask whiskey. And we also know it's not all about the booze for everyone, so we stock non--alcoholic options and pride ourselves in delivering a proper coffee, freshly made from bean to cup.
Good pub grub
Here at The Bell we offer a pizza, turf and surf menu! We offer a range of freshly prepared, stone-baked pizzas perfected with our partners at Barrel & Stone, who help us source fantastic, authentic ingredients. For the turf, we also have a range of fabulous burgers, perfected after many a tasting session! From the surf, we have a weekly fishy special or two on our specials board, including classics such as beer-battered fish and chips.
OTHER GOOD STUFF
Dogs, muddy boots and plenty of hoots
That's hoots as in 'having a hoot' as opposed to owls! Our dog-friendliness levels are regularly tested by our resident pub dog, Patch, who has very exacting standards on comfort and suitable treats. We're a short ride or walk from the Tarka Trail and on the A388. We have a good-sized car park and south-facing garden.
