the olde bell

The Olde Bell was founded in 1135 as the hostelry of Hurley Priory, making it one of the oldest hotels in the world. 

 

The coaching inn expanded in the 12th century to include a tithe barn and dovecote. The hotel is said to contain a secret tunnel leading to the village priory which was used by John Lovelace, who was involved in the Glorious Revolution to overthrow King James II in the 17th century. 

 

The hotel was also used as a meeting point for Winston Churchill and Dwight D. Eisenhower during World War II. Due to its proximity to Pinewood Studios, the inn has seen a number of movie-star guests, including Mae West, Greta Garbo, Cary Grant, Errol Flynn, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

We have the honour and pleasure of being able to decorate the Tythe Barn and Malt House.
