HISTORY OF THE BLUE BELL INN EMSWORTH
Originally known as The Brewery Tap, it was owned by Mr Hipkin who also owned the brewery at the rear of the pub.
The original Blue Bell was further down South Street Emsworth, and the building we have now was only rebuilt after the war.
It was moved in 1960 because it was blocking the entrance to the units behind.
When the brewery closed and the site was sold to Leslie Marsh he developed it a builders yard, and later various other industries such as Lewmar Marine.
After the war lorries and delivery trucks were getting bigger and they had difficulty turning from narrow South Street into the narrow entrance to the works. So Leslie paid to have the Blue Bell demolished and built on the other side (northern) of the entrance, allowing him to widen the entrance to his yard.
A free house, the Blue Bell Inn Emsworth has been owned by the Babb family since 1994 and is currently owned by Giles Babb.
The Blue Bell Inn Emsworth is located only yards from the quay in Emsworth, boasting terrific views from the terrace, and is renowned for superb food served in a proper pub. This busy local at the heart of the community is the perfect spot for a drink or a bite to eat after a walk around the harbour or a visit to the shops in the town. Well-stocked with a wide range of real ales and lagers, together with an extensive wine list, the Blue Bell, under the watchful eye of owner Giles, prides itself on serving fresh produce sourced locally. Nominated as one of the Top 20 pubs in the South-East by TripAdvisor in 2015, and recommended by The Times for its fish and chips, come and see what the fuss is about!
