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.

    This is a gem of a pub tucked away in the Norfolk countryside. Beautifully presented, the food is always exceptional. Staff are friendly and attentive. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Menu is full of local produce and the chef is willing to adapt ingredients to suit dietary requirements. This is a lovely place for a meal, whatever the occasion.
