ABOUT US
THE BELL INN CAERLEON
The Bell Inn has been pulling pints since 1602 when it began life as a coaching inn. It has a cozy beamed restaurant, a fireside bar, a snug and is lovingly run by Jo Merrick and Charly Webb. Jo and Charly's trading mantra is "Where nothing is too much trouble" and you feel it when you come inside. It's a warm and cozy place to sip an adult beverage while reading a book on a winter's day. Or to enjoy the Welsh sun in the secluded back garden while listening to Sunday music.
   
Chef Jo runs the kitchen while Charly oversees your dining and drinking experience from the front of the house. 

CHARLY WEBB

Charly started working in hospitality when she was just 12 years old. She takes great pleasure in creating a warm, welcoming, and cozy place for you to enjoy a drink or a meal.
 CHEF JO MERRICK
Chef Jo Merrick hails from Newport. She cut her chef teeth at the Glen-Yr-Afon House Hotel   in Usk where she was sous chef for 13 years. Jo started cooking over 21 years ago when she would help her grandfather, "Pops", prepare Sunday lunch. He was her greatest influence and he still inspires her today.

Jo's cooking includes influences from around the world, but she is especially inspired by food from Asia and India. Her signature dish is a melt-in-your-mouth, slow-cooked Honey & Soy Belly Pork. 

Jo loves nurturing people through food. She would love for you to come by and sample her homemade pork scratchings, or, better yet, have a meal.
