Previously a charming tavern that dates back to the 15thCentury, The Bell Hotel is a characterful venue in the heart of Thetford. Boasting most of its original features, the hotel provides you with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with authentic attributes complimented by modern furnishings. With 46 en suite bedrooms available, our hotel is a charismatic setting for your wedding day and offers the ultimate relaxing retreat for both you and your guests.
Here at The Bell Hotel we have three function rooms available, allowing us to cater to your needs. We can accommodate up to 100 guests, extending to 120 evening guests which is ideal for a larger wedding party. We have a license to host civil ceremonies, so we can cater for both your wedding service throughout the daytime and your celebratory evening reception. We would highly recommend our DJ for your evening reception too, however we have no objection and if you wish to bring along your own disco or band you can, provided it brings with it a public liability insurance.
We understand that every single detail counts on your wedding day, and with this in mind we have made sure that our wedding packages can be adapted to suit your requirements. Additional extras are available on request, whether they may be chair covers, a guest book, or a master of ceremonies – we would be happy to put you in touch with a number of our local suppliers.

Shelly & Scott · Married on 15/09/2018
We got married at The Bell hotel on 15th September 2018. We chose a wedding package that included a glass of fizz & canapès on arrival, 5 course breakfast dinner & use of the venue for our whole day & night. And it was absolutely perfect from start to finish.Sent on 01/02/2019
It really was a day to remember and every one of our guests commented on how amazing the venue looked, how delicious the food was and how great the service was.
A massive thank you needs to go to Brigitte for helping us plan & organise our day, Marlon for helping us get everything set up (& serving us & our guests until the early hours!!!) And Rachel for being my go to lady whenever I needed assistance or reassurance. The whole team did an amazing job and really pulled together to help make our day just how we wanted it. The chefs should be extremely proud of themselves - the meal was to die for & the evening buffet was just as amazing too.
It's difficult to explain in words just how excellent our big day was and everyone at The Bell should be extremely pleased with themselves for everything that they achieved. Thank you all so much xx
