The Old BellChef and Brewer pub

Grade II listed pub 

The Old Bell is a beautiful Grade II Listed former farmhouse. Dating back to 1735 this pub still regains some it's old style & charm. Based in Harpenden the pub is near the beautiful Chilterns. The pub is on the Luton Road, as you go through the town and faces gently undulating meadows. The leafy-green town of Harpenden is famous for its abundant greens and commons. Harpenden sits between two river valleys at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty. A short walk from The Old Bell is an old brick railway arch, on top of which sits the Nickey Line, once an old railway line linking Harpenden, Hemel Hempstead and Redbourn. Nowadays there's a picturesque public footpath and cycle path going through some of Hertfordshire's prettiest woodland.

Mix that with plenty of period charm inside, including lovely open fires and exposed wooden beams, The Old Bell is the perfect place in which to enjoy a traditional pub lunch.
