The Fenn Bell Inn, Rochester

The Fenn Bell Inn

  • Welcome to the Fenn Bell Inn

    The 17th century Fenn Bell Inn stands on the Hoo Peninsular, just a few miles from the cathedral city of Rochester and Chatham Historic Dockyard.

The Fenn Bell Inn will be re-opening on 13th December from 4pm following an extensive refurbishment. Food will not be available until February 2015.

The Fenn Bell Inn is thought to have been named after one of several bells erected on nearby marshes. In poor weather, these would ring to enable travellers to find a safe way across without getting stuck in the mud.

Today’s visitors can enjoy a selection of real ales along with a traditional menu of home dishes made with fresh ingredients. (Kitchen closed until February 2015 for refurbishment)  In winter the atmosphere is enhanced by a roaring central stove.

Outside, there is a large paved patio area with views over the large garden and pond. Work is currently underway to build a petting zoo,  large covered outdoor seating area and childrens play area. For those of you that prefer a quiet drink we also have a smaller seperate adults only paved patio area to the rear of the building.
