Restaurant description

A beautiful 17th-century inn overlooking the Norfolk countryside, The Brisley Bell was named Best Pub in the 2017 and 2019 Norfolk Food & Drink Awards and Norfolk Hero’s Best New Food & Drink venture 2018. With a lovely beer garden, croquet lawn and two crackling inglenook fires, this is a perfect spot to relax and sample gourmet flavours from trusted local suppliers.

Michelin-trained Head Chef Hervé Stouvenel crafts mouthwatering recipes on the meat led Brisley Bell menu, filled with international influences. Enjoy a range of delicious local dishes throughout the week at both lunch and dinner with a menu which is constantly evolving to reflect the changing flavours of the seasons. On Sundays there are generous Sunday roasts with all the trimmings, perfect to enjoy with a wine from a local supplier.

The Brisley Bell in Norfolk also serves craft beers and cask ales from a selection of local breweries, and whiskey from a distillery just outside Norwich. Be sure to try the ice cream from Lakenham Creamery too, or tuck in to the signature cheese board.

Filled with eclectic style, The Brisley Bell offers diners a true taste of seasonal Norfolk, all in a tranquil countryside setting.

    Very pleasant evening, good service and a varied menu. The chairs for two of us were rather low.

    Great location, light and airy, just like home. Good food selection. My wife would prefer to see less on the plate as she has eating difficulties due to throat muscles. Next time I will mention this before ordering. Staff very attentive

    Advance telephone booking was easy. On the night, staff were welcoming , friendly and very efficient. Menu main course choices appeared somewhat limited, but what we chose turned out to be beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Rustic room decor was very pleasant, although our two-seater table was rather small and the chairs rather uncomfortable. Amongst the other diners were one group of ten ladies and another of five. Both groups were loudly enjoying themselves (quite right too!), but that did make conversation difficult for me, since I am rather deaf and wear hearing aids - but that is my problem rather than a criticism of the Bell! Altogether, a good experience that we hope to repeat soon! Thank you.
