Ten Bells Tavern may be the perfect neighborhood pub. They pour solid pints of beer, serve great bar food and have an unassuming patio where you can drink to the setting sun. You can get Buffalo wings anywhere, and they will likely come with processed blue cheese and pale celery. Here the dip is played up with chunks of delicious moldy cheese and the strands of celery are crisp and edible. If fish and chips are your thing, don’t skip them here. The kitchen subs flounder for traditional cod, but the resulting dish is delicious. Not all that hungry? Grab a pickled egg. The selection changes with the seasons, but if the curry version is available it’s a must-order. The English were definitely on to something, and Ten Bells Tavern carries that torch.
