The Bell

A must visit pub for real ale, music and a true sense of community in Bath

  • Music

The Bell is a true community pub, the largest pub buyout project in Britain and the first Coop pub in Bath. It was jointly purchased in 2013 and their focus was to allow the pub to flourish and with continued dedication to quality produce, real ale and cider and the artistic community in Bath. 

 There is free live music three times a week, ranging from jazz, blues, folk and many other genres.

“To me, the Bell is a crucial and integral venue and a great window into the world of music and entertainment in the West Country" - Robert Plant, Led Zeppelin

The Bell is run as a co-operative and is owned by 518 of its customers, fans and workers, including some of the now famous musicians who played there in the early days of their career such as Robert Plant, Peter Gabriel and Midge Ure.
