The Five Bells
“Country pub with good food and live music”
CHELSFIELD, GREATER LONDON
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.

About the area
The UK's capital was founded by the Romans shortly after they invaded in 43AD. Since then it’s evolved into one of the greatest cities on earth. From a bloody, squalid history to the vanguard of fashion in the Swinging 1960s to the buzzing metropolis it is today, London has something for everyone. There are very British pursuits like the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace and an impressive collection of traditional English pubs. And that’s not to mention world-renowned arts venues, galleries and museums, award-winning theatre and unrivalled shopping – all found within a few Tube stops of each other.
London’s royal history is not to be missed. Visitors can roam around one of Britain’s finest medieval castles and royal prison, and learn about the final days of Anne Boleyn at the Tower of London or, for the less bloodthirsty, visit the Queen’s London home, Buckingham Palace. Don’t miss out on exploring the capital’s Royal Parks – from St James’ Park and Hyde Park in the centre to the majestic Hampton Court and wilderness of Richmond Park in the southwest.
