The Bell In Ticehurst, East Sussex

About

On the face of it The Bell is a quintessentially English pub – but poke your head through its welcoming doors and you will find much more. For all the world it feels as though an eccentric nobleman has travelled the world stuffing his home with curiosities from his travels.

The result is utterly charming. A truly independent public house, serving great local beers and splendid food cooked up by Colombian born head chef, Oscar. With his skilled team he blends essentially English cuisine with vibrant influences from his country of birth, bringing to the table original dishes making the best of what the local countryside provides.

Pick the right night and you may stumble upon one of the many cultural events curated by The Bell such as community film nights, world class comedy, talks and live jazz.

With a Big Room for celebrations, the Stable with a Table for private dining for 22, the snuggest of snugs and a stunning garden, the pub has many awards and accolades to its name, including the Michelin Guide and Sussex Life’s Best Sussex Pub Award. The Bell has been serving locals and travellers for over 400 years and a warm welcome awaits you.

Staying overnight at The Bell

There are seven comfortable bedrooms above the historic pub, which are quirky in the truest sense of the word. With sinfully comfortable hand-made mattresses, guests will delight in the attention to detail at every turn.

Venture through the willow arch to the garden within a garden to find three lodges and one unique Love Nest. The woven nest looks for all the world as if it is perched on top of a supporting trunk.

The maze-like structure around the fire pit definitely calls for a second look. These are carefully curated spaces where guests are free to create their own memories. They are the ultimate escape from the day-to-day, where everyone is encouraged to become part of the story of The Bell.

      Had a "tumbleweed moment" when I walked in with my family early on a Thursday evening. Really, the whole pub turned round, went quiet and looked at us for a brief but noticeable moment. Very odd... Read full review
