Bell Inn Between 1850 and 1856 this was the Wheelwrights Arms. From 1856 it was the Bell Inn, sometimes the Bell in the Tree. We have a description of the pub in 1906. Then it was a simple ale house with stone floors, scrubbed wooden tables and barrels of Phillips & Marriotts on the bar. The customers were mainly farmers and their labourers, topped up on high days and holidays by the occasional charabanc load from Coventry. On New Years Day, the licensee would put on a huge supper for the villagers. Trestle tables were laid out in the room upstairs, groaning under the weight of great joints of beef, lamb and pork. After a refurb in early 2020, the pub reopened as the Auction House on the 22nd July that year - delayed due to the Corona Virus Pandemic.
