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!

We are now open again!

We have put measures in place to try and keep everyone safe.

We also still offer takeaways - you can order online or 

call 01805 938285 to place your order.


We have made several key changes in line with Government Guidance. You can read about these in more detail by clicking on the button below, or on our news page.

We can't wait to see you!!!


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.


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.


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.
