The Five Bells is a whitewashed Grade II listed building that dates from the late 17th century and takes its name from the magnificent bells at the church just up the road. Set in a protected conservation village, it’s handy for the M25 as well as many lovely walks. There are two bars: one is a dog-friendly front bar boasting an original inglenook fireplace; the other is the dining room, leading out to the patio and extensive garden, which comes complete with a children’s play area. The seasonal menu complements the real ales and wines on offer: maybe start with duck pancakes and hoisin sauce, or a traditional prawn cocktail, followed by beer-battered cod and chips; freshly-made pie of the day; or lamb cutlets. Sandwiches and baguettes are available too, and beer festivals take place at Easter and in October along with regular live music and quizzes.

Discover Greater London
Greater London is one of the world’s largest urban areas; 33 boroughs stretching north to Enfield, south to Croydon, east to Havering, west to Hillingdon and with central London at the heart of it all.
Greater London was officially created in 1965, but the boroughs themselves all have their own histories going back much further. Greenwich is home to the Prime Meridian, which all clocks on earth take their time from, while Hounslow contains Heathrow Airport, one of the busiest airports in the world. Greater London contains a multitude of parks and green spaces, from the six Royal Parks (including Richmond Park, Green Park, Hyde Park and Regent’s Park) and other huge open spaces like Hampstead Heath and Clapham Common; to smaller community spaces like Clissold Park in Stoke Newington and Burgess Park in Southwark.
The centre of London has its quiet spaces too, like Coram’s Field by Great Ormond Street, and Camley Street Natural Park, a stone’s throw from King’s Cross and St Pancras. One of the city’s most impressive features is the London Underground. Beginning in 1863 as the Metropolitan Railway, it took commuters into The City from the suburbs of Middlesex. It was the first underground railway in the world, and now consists of 11 lines, 270 stations, and 250 miles (402km) of track. It’s estimated that nearly five million journeys are taken every day, and there are nearly one and a half billion riders each year. At peak times, there are more than 543 trains whizzing around the Capital.
