The portions are huge. The whitebait were nice and crisp and fresh tasting. Served with a thick wedge of freshly cut lemon and a refreshing fresh salad and... More

Nothing to complain about at all really. A nice pub with friendly staff and decent pub food at a reasonable price. you can't compare this to the Crown in Henlow but if you want a decent, filling meal at a good price then I'd recommend the 5 Bells all day long.

We visited The Five Bells for my sons birthday on a Friday evening. The sun was out so quite a few people were in the garden so I would highly recommend booking for a table inside. Despite being busy we were served quickly and efficiently by a friendly team of staff (finally a pub that employs enough staff during busier... More
