About Us

Here is just a little info to let you get to know us better...


Here is little potted history of our pub and the local area... if you have a spare minute or two and maybe a cup of tea (or is that a G&T), we think it's well worth read.

If you'd like to put a name to a face, allow us to introduce you to the crew...

Front of house

Rachael Perry


Rachael has spent the last 10 years working in hospitality after studying for a history degree; her love of pubs overcame her love of history and here we are! She joined Brunning and Price four years ago and has spent her time in numerous other pubs across the company before opening the White Horse in Beaconsfield. Not only did she acquire a new pub, she also acquired a new head chef who also just so happens to be her partner. After some debate of where they wanted to ‘settle down’, they’re now opening the Bell together with Adam at the helm once again in the kitchen.


Adam Purdy

Head Chef

Adam has a wealth of experience, from fine dining, working his way through the ranks, to running his own pub, before joining Brunning and Price in 2018. In his spare time, he's an avid sports fan. We do pity him for his choice of football team, but he is Northern so we try to look past it. When he’s not in the kitchen you may spot him around the pub, either with a pint at the bar or tinkering with something that Rachael may or may not have persuaded him to fix.

Megan Docchar

Senior Chef de Partie

Queen of pastry and everything sweet, Megan runs a dazzling dessert section with an exquisite eye for detail. Megan even bakes in her own time; she loves to cook and will regularly show the team new ideas she has orchestrated at home. When Megan's not baking, she enjoys walking her dog and spending time watching movies and TV shows. Rumour is her dish of choice is Ramen. MEGAN THAT'S NOT A DESSERT!!!!!
