The Ongar Bell is located in a picturesque village with a great position on a busy High Street, however a short walk brings you into open countryside where you can enjoy walks for miles.

  • Brentwood is our nearest town, made famous by TOWIE and the Sugarhut nightclub, ideal for nightlife and shopping. Epping is our next closest town which has direct links on the Central Line to London.
  • We are surrounded by shops either fashion, homeware, antiques or eateries all within a short walk of our property.
  • We are a pub but if you want to venture out, there is the newly refurbished Kings Head a few doors away, great takeaways or dine at the Porterhouse or Mogal Indian all within walking distance.
  • Stansted is about 25 minutes away.
  • We have a wonderful old steam railway in Ongar which links up to Epping and the Central Line into London (weekends only). Alternatively there is Brentwood that links up to Liverpool Street.
  • Buses stops on the High Street to Brentwood, Epping, Chelmsford or Harlow. Alternatively at the weekend there are vintage buses that link up to Epping station at the beginning of the Central Line.
