The Bell in Bush Lane is just around the corner from Cannon Street railway station. It’s one of the small Red Car Pub chain and is a cosy pub with a locals feel in the middle of the city
Whilst it doesn’t boast the extensive beer selection of other Red Car pubs such as the Castle in Holborn or the New Wheatsheaf in Southwark, the beers they do carry are kept well. Harvey’s Sussex Best is a permanent fixture along with Courage Best. There are usually 2 or 3 other guests available – St Austell Tribute, Timothy Taylor Landlord and Young’s Bitter were options on my last visit.
This small pub gets busy at lunchtimes and after work – don’t be surprised to see people on the pavement outside, even on winter evenings.
Inside the Bell the decor is spartan with few chairs and tables – it’s mainly standing room.
An occasional toilet aroma pervades, but apparently not much can be done about that – and you shouldn’t be put off as it’s a great little pub.
