Bell Country Inn, Llanwyre

The Bell Inn stands near the church of Llanwyre and built in 1888.  The present inn stands on an older hostelry which dated back to 1667 as seen in a dated oak panel by the front door.  The early Bell Inn was much used by the drovers on their regular excursions into England. 

It was also a popular haunt for the local fox hunters who called in whilst on their way to the meet.  A former huntsman, well known in the Bell would ‘after a few glasses of beer from the wood he would  grow quite jolly and elated.... he would break out into his old call to the hounds, ‘Tally ho, hark away!’

The Bell was run by Mrs Mackintosh during the Second World War whilst Mr Mackintosh was away serving in the Royal Air Force.

The Bell Inn has been refurbished over the years and in the 1970s a second bar was built along with a new restaurant called Stables.

Since March 2004 it has been known as the Bell Country Inn.
