The Old Bell

Chef & Brewer pub in Harpenden

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. 

This Grade II listed 18th century former farmhouse is on Luton Road, facing 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, that's now a picturesque public footpath and cycleway, through some of Hertfordshire's prettiest woodland. 

The Old Bell offers great food being part of the Chef & Brewer chain. 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. Yet with its wide range of fine cask ales and quality ales, and its spacious tree-bordered beer garden, this pub is also a wonderful place to stop-off for a refreshing drink if you're walking the Hertfordshire countryside.
