The story of The Bell stretches back to 1560 when it was a coaching inn. We have smoothed out the rougher edges but preserved the wonderful imperfections that somehow make it perfect. First and foremost we are a Public House, with some rather wonderful rooms, a home from home for everyone and we would be delighted to have your company.
Once Upon a Now
Food glorious food
We believe in engaging with nature, cherishing the rich and varied bounty that each season brings. Blending three ingredients – people, produce and place – we create uncomplicated, un-rushed food in a style of our own.
And now we rest
There is a story to each of the seven quirky hotel bedrooms and four fairytale lodges set in a garden of whimsy. Every room is unique, lavished with love and furnished with thought in every detail.
Tie the knot
We like to think The Bell is a rather unusual wedding venue, nestled in a picture perfect Sussex village.
If you are contemplating something a little out of the ordinary for your special day, you need look no further.
