Not knowing this area at all we took a risk and booked this pub for lunch, what a stroke of luck that was. From entering the establishment to leaving we had a wonderful experience. The publican and staff were friendly and helpful. The food was...well prepared, presented and cooked you can't ask for more. The place was clean and the decor perfect. It felt like a good welcoming local pub which I imagine it is. We had fish & chips (supposed to be cod but more a whale!) and lamb burger following smoked mackerel pate for starter. Can't tell you about dessert as we were full up.More

Another great takeaway Sunday roast dinner. Everything was just as it should be for a really tasty meal. When you phone your order in you arrange the pick up time and it is a simple case of parking and collecting your delicious food. Nothing could...be easier. Well done, and thank you, Bell and Jorrocks.More

With Kent in Tier 3, this is the place to go to get your takeaway meals. We had the Sunday Roast Lunch. The beef was cooked to a turn and delicious and so were the vegetables. All ordered with the minimum of fuss; ready at...the time we wanted and served by a very friendly host. No doubt, we will be back and will also try a meal from the rest of the menu. Not only is there take away food but there is also a shop for those items you may suddenly find you need.More

One of the best pubs in Kent! Great landlords, incredibly welcoming and always produce a good pint! Can’t recommend this place enough for a proper British pub!

Called in here yesterday after a lovely walk for a Sunday roast, brilliant, high quality, homemade food, delicious 😋 This superb pub is also on top of the Covid restrictions, one way system and hand sanitizer in place. I highly recommend this pub.

The Bell & Jorrocks is an amazing pub!!! Friendly staff, extremely tasty food and great atmosphere. A pub with a real community feel, making this SUCH a lovely place to have a few drinks and a meal (had a three course meal and every single...dish was super tasty) We love all that this lovely pub has to offer. A fantastic place to come with the whole family. Looking forward to our next visit!More

We live a few miles away and have been to the Bell and Jorrocks a few times for drinks and also for lunch. It’s always been fantastic - great beer, tasty filling food, and most of all warm hospitality from the landlord and landlady.

Visited this delightful pub whilst on a walk from Sisdinghurst; received a very friendly greeting. The pub was clean and tidy and without the annoyance of background music. A good range of beers and lagers were on offer, and a fantastic traditional pub menu. I...had a very good Hamm egg and chips (home baked ham) and my wife had an enviable portion of freshly battered fish. We have already started to recommend this pub to others as we will certainly be returning soon.More

Ate last Friday evening having booked a table for 4. Lovely warm atmosphere with the log fire burning. Exceptional food - fish and chips and the burger and chips are spot on. The pies are equally as good. Service by Scarlett spot on. All in...all a great pub meal. The B&J is a great local. Thanks.More

Good menu, good food, good atmosphere - and I am sure it would be equally good midweek as well! Recommended.

To be honest we didn’t , but I think we were lucky to get a table and then we had to wait quite a while before sitting down so my advice would be yes
