Having found The Cherry Tree closed, we went to The Bell. It is quite a long time since we last ate there, and we found a much reduced, simpler menu. This was a great improvement of previous overpriced meals we have had in the past. We were able to sit outside in the prettily lit courtyard garden at the back... More

We could only spare one night away so I booked the Bell at Ticehurst. I remember stopping here for lunch with my parents many years ago so it caught my eye. We stayed in a garden lodge. Fantastic! A super king bed, gorgeous bathroom and private outdoor decking. Upstairs, a chill out are. Day beds, record player and an assortment... More

Stayed one night in one of the lodges, called "Pretty Vacant". Quirky gardens are very appealing and I was full of admiration for the creative imagination behind this and the many interesting features around the Inn. Lodge itself was clean, bed very comfortable, big tv. As someone who likes a lot of light. I did find it a bit too... More

From our arrival being checked in by Chloe, to our departure, this was the best overnight stay my wife and I have ever had. We booked to stay here as we like quirky and unusual, and there is so much to catch the eye from the bowler hat lampshades in the restaurant to the addled typewriter in the bedroom fireplace....

Excellent room and service. Dinner was great - good choice and nice wines. Lovely atmosphere in the pub - local ales. Breakfast was nice with a good choice but sliced bread for toast - as in the bog standard supermarket bread in plastic bags - was disappointing.

We booked two nights at the Bell via Secret Escapes. We stayed in 'Between the Lines' lodge in the gardens at the rear of the Inn. This beautiful wood built lodge was clean, tidy and very comfortable. Lovely little touches included a real teapot, caffitiere and fresh milk in the fridge. We were also given a delicious platter of very... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Bell is a truly quirky hotel and pub in the heart of the village of Ticehurst, East Sussex. Bedrooms in the main building are warm and comfortable, some featuring a copper roll top bath. There are four lodges built around a fire pit in the garden and include the extraordinary Love Nest. The restaurant serves modern British prepared from local and seasonal ingredients, whilst locals gather in the pub for local real ales and a roaring fire in winter.
