Thetford town used to be the religious capital of East Anglia and parts of the Tudor style Bell Hotel building date back to 1469, with older parts underneath dating to the 11th Century. Haunted by two ghosts, 'Busy Radcliff' and a monk, the old building is truly genuine. Locals find the Bell Hotel an ideal place to meet up for a chat and quiet drink. Food in the hotel is mouthwatering and all professionally prepared from fresh ingredients with an extensive main menu available along with our Specials Board. Our very large Norfolk fish and chips are not to be missed. Your meal can be accompanied by one of our fine wines from a wide selection. Visitors will find the atmosphere here warm and friendly and the whole place very cosy. With 46 comfortable, homely en-suite rooms we are the ideal place to stay, with some bedrooms having their own balcony. Our feature four poster rooms are a cut above the rest, coming with DVD players. The four function rooms hold from 12 to 70 people seated and can be used for celebrations such as wedding receptions, birthdays and christenings. For meetings we can provide you with conference facilities such as OHP, screen, flipchart, TV and video. The friendly, helpful staff will always be here to welcome you to the Bell Hotel and look forward to seeing you soon.
