Studham is the Southern most village in Bedfordshire & there you’ll find the highest lying village pub, a genuine freehold… ‘The Bell’. The Grade II listed, 500 year old sanctuary, is nestled quietly amidst some of Bedfordshire’s finest countryside. With panoramic views and an abundance of original character, the picture postcard haven can be found just 10 minutes from both Dunstable & Hemel Hempstead and 5 minutes from the Dunstable Downs and Whipsnade Zoo.

We pride ourselves on providing ‘Food and Gifts we Love’ and together with our team aim to provide a warm welcome… Enjoy traditional food favourites…Home-made Pies, Sunday Roasts with all the trimmings, freshly beer battered Cod & triple cooked chips, to eat in or take-away and even a ‘99’ soft Ice cream!. As well as authentic pasta dishes, fresh fish & fine meats. Be enticed with the aroma of fresh dough Italian pizzas being cooked from the warmth of the stone clay pizza oven. Wines are often recommended and our Coffee Frappes are unique to The Bell. As you walk in, you’ll notice gifts and goodies around. If it’s got a price on it…then it’s for sale! From wine racks, clocks and signs to candles and novelty items – perfect as a gift but even better to keep for you!

Whether you pop in for a’ Brew & Bakery Treat’, or simply rest a while with a snack at lunchtime with our ‘Cask 2 Glass Ale’ after a walk. Enjoy free Wi-Fi ‘n’ revive with our fresh ‘Bean to Cup’ Coffees or an evening sipping champagne by the glass. Holding a function or dining with family & friends… The Bell is there for you.
