Welcome to The Hunworth Bell.
A historic pub set in rolling hills in the heart of Norfolk, just 2 miles from Holt, celebrating classic British pub food.
Multi-award winning chef Ben Handley and his wife Sarah took over the pub and, after renovation, opened in August 2017. Ben's menu reflects the seasons and contains pub classics along with more complicated dishes, and also his famous 'Bar Bites' for those wanting a light snack.
Sarah has rejuvenated the pub in a tasteful and cosy manner and built a local team of happy faces.
Ben and Sarah have owned The Duck Inn, Stanhoe for several years and have won numerous accolades including becoming The Good Food Guide Restaurant of the Year 2017 for the East of England, being included in Conde Nast's Top 5 Norfolk Foodie Hotspots, a finalist in The Observer Food Monthly Awards 2014-2017 and listed and praised for it's cuisine in the 2018 Michelin Guide.
Ben Handley "We are delighted to be expanding our little family further into beautiful North Norfolk, and I’m especially keen to work with local producers and the Stody Estate to ensure that we offer a modern British pub menu, using the best Norfolk produce, at the Hunny Bell."
Sarah Handley "We have enjoyed so many successful and happy times at The Duck and we feel the time is right for us to expand further. The Hunny Bell is the most beautiful pub in a part of the world we all love."
