Some History

welcome

  

Welcome to the Bell Inn - may your visit be both fulfilling and enjoyable 

You follow in the footsteps of generations of local folk who have enjoyed traditional English fayre seasoned with the warmth of Northamptonshire country welcome which has been the hallmark of the Bell Inn for centuries. 

Had you passed this way over 200 years ago you would have been greeted by an old Inn sign featuring a portrait of Queen Edith, wife of Edward the Confessor bearing the legend:

Queen Edith, Lady, once of Finedon

Where at The Bell good food is dined on

And so you would have been linked with over 900 years of English country cuisine. For legend has it that Queen Edith dined at the Bell and well she might, having been the owner of the land it now sits. Certainly we have proof that good wholesome food has been enjoyed here since Tudor times for most of the Inn was built in 1598, although the old cellars have an earlier feel.

The Bell has remained at the centre of village life since that time as attested by many references in the Parish records. 

The annual feast of the village amicable society was regularly held here on Easter Mondays when often more than 50 local worthies sat down to a traditional beef supper. 

Local enclosure meetings were held here throughout the early 1800’s when a good dinner could be purchased for a shilling and six pence or 71/2 pence in today’s money. (It will unfortunately cost you a little more today). Events of national importance were also celebrated at The Bell as proven by an entry in the Church Warden’s accounts for 1821 which recorded that five shillings had been paid to the then landlord for hale at the King’s assenshun (crossed out) accession (crossed out), Coronation. One wonders how many pints that would have bought or indeed whether they were all consumed by the Clerk which might account for his inability to spell. 

The village records are peppered with references to functions and meetings at The Bell when hard earned money was spent on both food and ale - a truly local recommendation to both quality and good value.

And so the tradition continues to this day and is ably carried on by your host, Dennis Willmott and Bells Kitchen whose sole objective is to provide wholesome country food and good quality wines and ales at reasonable prices in comfortable surroundings. Enjoy your stay as many have before you.
