The historic Bell in Thetford has a restaurant serving simple English food, a bar with traditional ales, and comfy en suite rooms.

The Bell was originally a seminary, but under Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries, it was sold as an inn in 1540. The hotel retains much of its original character. In 1938, Tudor wall paintings were discovered. These paintings, now preserved behind glass, can be seen in one of the bedrooms.
The Bell Hotel features throughout the Dadís Army TV series, and was the backdrop to many scenes.
