Good News! Waz and Emma are back and the normal excellent service has been resumed. We sat in the bar and had delicious brie and bacon ciabattas. Good ambiance with the Over 60s enjoying their meal in the restaurant.

We stayed for one night and found the B&B to be both clean and well appointed. The building is beautiful and people who served us were polite and helpful regarding ordering taxis. The breakfast was good too. Overall a good stay in a lovely room.

This was something a little different. We usually have a long enjoyable meal with friends but this year we went to the Eight Bells where the fare was canapés for each course and free Prosecco. For those of us who like prosecco, there were liberal supplies. The rest of us bought wine or beer, the prices of which were very... More

We decided to find a hotel near Newhaven as our boat didn't land until 9.30pm and we knew that we wouldn't want to drive another 4 hours to get home. Only 40 minutes from Newhaven we booked The Eight Bells - an historic pub in Bolney . The pub itself was beautifully decorated for Christmas and we arrived in time... More

Never mind the AA stars - ring out the eight bells all of them! This is positively one of the best in the south and certainly the very best that West Sussex has to offer. It is kind of hidden away. It is pub, restaurant and a beautiful annex in the shadow of the Church. It is the heart of... More

Very comfortable homely accommodation with very friendly, helpfull staff. The breakfast and evening meal were excellent and I would thoroughly recommend The Eight Bells. The Pub was very welcoming and friendly good variety of drinks reasonably priced and Posh Bob could not have been more helpful on advice for the surrounding area.
