So why not sit back, relax and watch all the action as it unfolds with a beer in hand at The Blue Bell 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.
