All reviews steak and kidney pudding sunday roast chilli sausage sandwich coleslaw pork the pub great friendly pub great selection of real ales friendly faces hard work feel very welcome home cooked food excellent food nice lunch cannot fault table service
The fish and chips are first class and great value for money. Lovely fresh fIsh in an exceptional batter served with chunky chips. The apple crumble and custard was excellent.
First class bitter to wash it down as well.
The New Bell Inn had a great range of ales and ciders at great prices. The bar staff were very friendly and there was also some live music being played which added to the great atmosphere. Best pub in Harwich!
Four for lunch sampling scampi and chips and steak and kidney pudding. Scampi came with chips,coleslaw,salad,tartare sauce,lemon and dressing. Pudding came with broccoli, carrots, cabbage and was a large portion. All meals were of very good quality and the pudding was thought to be homemade....Overall great pub lunch which I would recommend as an ex licensee and definitely visit again.More
We were walking through Harwich and came across the New Bell Inn so decided to give it a go and it was a very good decision,we were made to feel welcome,I had the steak and kidney pudding with veg and the wife had a chilli...con carne which were excellent,we shall be returningMore
On a walk around Historic Harwich stopped here for an Al fresco lunch. Superb friendly service and a terrific Caesar Salad (my chap really enjoyed his sausage sandwich too). Well done for using your car park for more outside tables.
What an absolute wonderful, welcoming, dog friendly pub. Not been spoilt by over modernisation. Great selection of real ales. We had Sunday lunch, what great value, home cooked food. A little gem of a place. Love the table service.
This is a hidden gem of the beautiful historic Harwich.
The landlord and landlady are always so welcoming.
A good selection of ales beers and wines. Fab food. Pop along on the ferry train or road and relax and enjoy!
