THE EIGHT BELLS
We reopen on the 24th of November with our Winter Garden tipis and Festive menus. Reservations are open now.
Welcome to our 16th Century timber framed pub where our olde-worlde exterior gives way to a fabulously fun and modern interior - setting the scene for you to enjoy our food, sample our range of beers, explore our wine list and delve into our gin collection.
We are on the border where Essex meets Cambridgeshire in the beautiful market town of Saffron Walden. We celebrate all that is great about our fantastic region – its people, provenance and personality.
