Stayed for four nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The staff and customers were very friendly and the inn itself was very warm, welcoming and cozy. The room was spacious with a large, comfortable bed. The en-suite had everything you required with large, thick and warm bath towels, a touch of luxury compared to other places we have...

Excellent little hotel. Rooms are large and well equipped. Everything you need is to hand including a well stocked (and reasonable priced) Minibar. The rooms are detached from the pub (the Bell) by about 10 meters. It serves excellent food, beakfast is also served in the pub and is cooked to order and again excellent. Cant give this place a...

We didn't stay here but just visited for a Sunday lunch. Although there wasn't anyone else eating, our roast beef and lamb dinners could have been cooked fresh, they were beautiful. The potatoes were crisp and fluffy, the meat was excellent and the vegetables were cooked to perfection. The service was very good, very friendly and we will definitely be...

We stayed here for one night on 28th October in a very comfortable, warm and inviting room, with an ample supply of tea and coffee. The comfortable king sized bed had crisp, spotlessly clean bed linen and there was a good supply of fresh towels. We and had a superb dinner in the evening which was absolutely beautiful and there...

We wanted to get away for a couple of days, and as my birthday was coming up my wife booked for us to stay overnight yesterday. We were impressed that, along with the confirmation response, we had an e-mail pointing out that as it was a Sunday the pub finished serving food at 5:00pm, and offering to give us details...

Whilst visiting camber we wanted somewhere that would cater for all of our group together and served a Sunday roast, 15 adults and 3 children. We called late Sunday morning to book a table and the staff were very accommodating with our booking they managed to fit us in for midday. We were approached with friendly staff and was pleased...

We had lunch at this delightful pub. The food was really tasty and very filling. We had the pie of the day. We would definitely return to eat here when we are in the area. Really really good and the staff were very friendly and made you welcome.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This traditional village pub dates back to the 15th century with our snug area dating back to 1107! Legend has it, that the original building was used as accommodation for the monks that built Iden church. We have two delightful letting rooms, separate to the pub. Rooms offer king sized beds and en-suite facilities. Other features include original oak beams within the letting rooms and the main inn. Make yourselves tea and coffee in vintage china in the morning in bed whilst watching television with freeview prior to popping over the the restaurant for a sumptuous hearty breakfast using fresh local produce - continental and full English are offered.We are proud of our home cooked food and offer far more than your usual pub grub. Our food is locally sourced where possible and reflects seasonal changes. We are a perfect dining space for a romantic dinner for two, a family celebration or a private party. ... more   less
