Welcome to

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!

Lockdown 2


Whilst we're in lockdown we will still be serving our fab food and drinks as takeaways on FRIDAY and SATURDAY evenings (6pm to 8pm).

Go to our takeaway page to order online, or click the button below. You can also call 01805 938285. It will be collection only, via staggered time slots so we can keep us all safe.

So treat yourselves, we'd love to see you and it of course helps us get through these strange times!

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.


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.
