This week my wife and two friends stayed at this wonderful pub in the lovely village of Bolney near Brighton. The food, beer and bedrooms were excellent and the staff very friendly and at the same time efficient. Well worth booking a stay in in the area. We will certainly be going back.

We booked this as a one night stop while crossing southern England. What a shame we did not make it 2 nights. Stayed in the Bartholemew room double. Well done up in and old restored building. The common sitting room has several local historic books to keep you busy. The restaurant had a long menu of local fresh dishes. Breakfast... More

We had a warm welcome at this bed and breakfast. We had booked the twin room which was very comfortable with a really nice bathroom. The only downside about the bathroom was that we couldn't get the towel rail to work, so everything remained rather damp. We had an evening meal in the restaurant and were very satisfied with the...

Couldn't fault the "wonderful" service from all the hard working staff who went out of their way to accomodate our family of 7 staying overnight.We had the whole of the accomodation to ourselves! Very clean and well worth the price for spacious rooms and huge bathroom, would definatley recommend to all, hope to get the chance to visit again sometime... More

My partner and I stayed just for a Sunday night after visiting the Bolney Estate Winery. We were early for check-in (which is at 14:00) so we were welcomed into the beer garden of the pub for a pint. The room (Cornelius) was exactly as photographed on the website. But on the ground floor, it was a hot day (South... More

In reviewing The Eight Bells at Bolney on New Year's Eve I inadvertently gave one circle as my overall rating. This is of course incorrect as you can see from my individual ratings. Please amend..

This pub is a real gem. Step back in time and enjoy good old fashioned English hospitality. The staff are excellent, can't do enough for you and the food is to die for. We had three different meals on our table, all served in quick time and all excellent. Nearly forgot the beer, lovely pint so yes we will be... More

Major changes in my diary this week left me looking for a new hotel for Wednesday night. I needed somewhere between 2 clients and Bolney was, right in the middle. I poped of an email about 9:30pm and to my surprise received a reply at 10:45, saying that they could do a bit of juggling and fit me in. No... More
