There is nothing quite like The Bell for a distinctively different wedding venue, but don’t take our word for it.


Read why so many couples choose The Bell over other wedding venues in East Sussex and Kent.

Catherine & Brian - Oct 19

We had our wedding at the Bell on 20th October 2019 and can honestly say it was the best wedding venue we could have chosen. Tessa and Hannah were amazing and looked after us throughout the last 11 months and on the day itself.

Our guests loved the food and the decor, the accommodation was amazing and the whole day was happy, relaxed and just perfect in every way!

Thank you everyone at The Bell xx

Natasha & Amy - Sept 19

We cannot thank every single member of the team enough!
We (and every single one of our guests that we have spoken to since) were blown away with the level of service that we received.  We have discussed since how it feels as though the team at The Bell were just as much as part of out wedding day celebraitons as out loved ones were, in making the day as special and memorable as it was!

Quite simply, we would recommend you guys in a heartbeat and so too, would all our guests!  For you are all Marvellous!!

Lydia & Tarik - Aug 19

The Bell is just the most wonderful venue. From the moment, we set foot in there, we knew it was exactly what we wanted. Tessa was brilliant – efficient, thoughtful and just lovely. She made us feel relaxed and you just knew everything was in hand. The Bell has managed to get exactly the right balance of being a luxurious venue in many ways - beautiful rooms and garden with lovely interesting touches, yet it is also such a warm, relaxed and intimate place, where the staff are so helpful and happy. Hannah co-ordinated everything on the day, so patient and understanding – nothing was too much trouble. The food was also incredible. We had the most brilliant perfect day!


Catherine & Malcolm-Jul 19

The Bell supplied an excellent event for us for our July wedding.

Organisation, quality, price and personal attention to detail were all first class. 

So many of our guests fell in love with The Bell and its quirky character

Emma & Chris - June 19

It’s difficult to know where to start other than to say that The Bell is the PERFECT wedding venue. There isn’t one thing we could fault: from the very beginning Tessa, our coordinator was fantastic; the venue is so charmingly quirky; the accommodation is wonderfully luxurious; the staff (especially Hannah and Eve) were the pinnacle of helpfulness and professionalism; oh, and every guest we spoke to said it was the best wedding food they’d ever tasted!

They really did everything to ensure it was the best day of our lives and if we could get married again we’d choose The Bell every time in a heartbeat!

Lisa & Joao - May 19

We love everything about The Bell - the quirky fun of the place, the relaxed vibe, the amazing friendly staff. It has everything and the food is amazing.

We had our wedding there recently and it was special and amazing, Tessa, Eve and her team were the best, couldn't have been a more enjoyable process and stress-free way of planning a wedding and on the day we didn't worry about a thing.

Can't wait to visit every year for our wedding anniversaries.

Lauren & Steve - April 19

I could not recommend The Bell enough!!  It was the perfect chilled out, relaxed venue for our Wedding of the century!  Our guests still tell us how fabulous our day was and that it was hands down THE BEST WEDDING they had even been to.  Tessa is incredible, couldn’t do enough for us and was super patient with my constantly interfering parents..!  Tessa and her team made sure we had everything we could need and went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly.  We could happily do it every year if we could!  Thank you guys, we can’t wait to see you again soon xxx

Rachel & Chris - Mar 19

We had our wedding breakfast and party at The Bell and it was the most perfect day. Organising and planning were easy as wedding co-ordinator Tessa took care of all the details for us. The food was amazing and the venue itself is so beautifully quirky and unique - perfect for any couple looking for something a bit different!

Thank you, Tessa and team - everybody had a great time!


Hattie & Daryl - Feb 19

The Bell was the perfect venue for our February wedding and we received nothing but compliments about it.

As amazing as the space and decor is, it's really the staff that make this venue what it is. They're great. From the planning phase with Tessa, to the staff on shift in the bars and kitchens, and those specifically looking after things during the event (we had Eve and Hannah), they all get involved with as much or as little as you'd like and ensure that everything goes smoothly which allowed us to enjoy the day.  

Giovanna & Daniel - Jan 19

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at The Bell and it was faultless. We took over all the hotel rooms and my elderly parents even stayed there for a week when they came up for the wedding and were looked after like family, which was very reassuring. The staff, the venue and everything about the day was brilliant!! Tessa and the staff accommodated everything and took care of us on the day. The atmosphere, ambiance, food and service were wonderful. All the guests loved the quirky but cosy venue and the food. A massive thanks to Tessa and all the staff. Nothing was too much trouble...they are a truly gifted team of individuals who certainly know their stuff!!!

Rebecca & Ashley - Dec 18

We had the most wonderful winter wedding at the Bell Inn, filled with twinkling lights, crackling fires, winter pimms and a live band. All our close family and friends gathered for a cosy day to celebrate our next chapter. We couldn't have achieved such a magical day without the help of Tessa and the Bell crew. We didn't think the wedding would even go ahead because of the bride being so ill. But it all happened in the end and it was everything we dreamed. Thank you so much xx

Emily & David - Nov 18

Wow!! That was the reaction from all our guests after the most special day for our wedding. The venue is truly unique, both inside and out, and provides a relaxed setting. The staff were brilliant, especially Tessa and Eve, as nothing was too much trouble and their relaxed approach puts you at ease. The food was exceptional - we are still getting comments about how it was the best wedding food anyone has had. We also loved the fire pit and sparkler experience at the end of the night. I am so happy we chose this venue as it couldn't have been more perfect for relaxed foodies like ourselves. We look forward to coming back, staying and eating here every year. Thank you The Bell.
