The Bell at Iden

This traditional village inn dates back, in parts, to the 15th century, or earlier. Local legend has it that the original building was used as accommodation for the monks that built Iden church. It is also thought that there is a tunnel between the pub cellar and the church, although this has not been discovered, we do keep our eye out for the vicar turning up in the cellar!
