Smarden Bell


Welcome to the Smarden Bell a 15th Century Inn nestling in the heart of the Weald of Kent.  An unassuming Pub serving good ale and honest food in a cosy environment.  Enjoy a drink in our snug Cellar Bar with a roaring fire and plenty of local banter to boot, then go through to the dining room and enjoy a delicious meal freshly cooked and served by our friendly staff.


The Smarden Bell has been taken over by internationally acclaimed chef Carleton Smith who’s ethos is to provide a spontaneous & innovative eating experience  for our diners within a traditional country pub environment.  Good honest food! All our produce is locally sourced from the best local growers & producers.
