About The Bell in Ticehurst

High Street, Ticehurst
East Sussex, TN5 7AS

The ambience at The Bell in Ticehurst is distinctly laid back, a little bit quirky and definitely not run of the mill.  This fabulous old coaching inn has been lovingly refurbished - the perfect place to celebrate life, love and happiness.

Our Big Room for fancy occasions can accommodate 70 guests catered for and up to 120 guests for your evening party. So whether you would like to get married at The Bell, or simply just celebrate your marriage with us, we will be yours for the day.

The Bell’s design is diverse in the truest sense of the word. The building looks as though an eccentric nobleman has travelled around the world and has stuffed the house full of curiosities from his travels, from old typewriters and ancient novels to safari chairs and mismatched chandeliers!

We like to be a little bit different and pull out all the stops to make your day truly memorable, making The Bell no ordinary wedding venue – whether you would like to host a cosy winter wedding with log fires, or throw open the doors to let the sunshine in!

We have a very flexible approach and pay huge attention to detail, working alongside you the whole step of the way. We don’t mind if granddad wants to have a snooze in the snug, or if the godchildren run riot, or if your aunt decides to dance on the table – in fact, we quite like it.

There are seven individual rooms, and four extraordinary lodges for you and your guests to stay in. On your first night of married life, you can spend it in the Love Nest, the perfect place to begin married bliss. This subterranean cocoon comes complete with a copper bath, double shower, wood burner and a private roof terrace.

Come and visit us soon, we look forward to welcoming you with open arms!

Just Perfect
Venue Service

By Jessica and Sam, on 10 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Jun 2019

We recently had our wedding reception at the Bell and it was just perfect. Considering how many weddings the Bell does, we were worried that it might not feel like it was very personal and would have been like every other wedding. But the enthusiasm of every staff member during that day and night (and even the night before) was just amazing, they clearly really care about every single wedding that they do and it ended up feeling really personal to us. In the lead up to the wedding Tessa was always easy to get hold of and was really flexible with our last minute changes. On the day we were well looked after and we felt like we could really relax and everything was taken care of. The majority of our guests complimented the venue, especially the pub garden and the food (the lamb was AMAZING). The rooms were cosy and comfortable. Overall the Bell made everything stress free and relaxed and made sure we enjoyed our day. Although we would like to keep it as our little wedding venue we would 100% recommend it.

Seamless day from start to finish!

We got married on the 8th June 2019 and had our wedding reception at the Bell in Ticehurst. We had been looking around for somewhere that had the traditional basis to the day but didn't feel formulaic and overdone. As soon as we walked into the Bell it felt special but also really cosy and friendly at the same time. We loved the details to the décor and the different spaces that made you feel that there was room for people to move and not feel to stuffy. We had always felt uncomfortable about an outside wedding given the infamous British weather but the Bell had the outside space too if the weather was kind. Nothing was ever too much for the team. Our tasting was superb and Tessa as well as Eve and Hannah on the day bent over backwards to make sure that everything would as was runny smoothly. There was not one person that didn't have a smile on their face for our party and this really makes a massive difference. One of our family friends said that the lay out of the day was so relaxed but perfect that he enjoyed it more than his own kids weddings! I'm not sure there is higher praise. We all loved the accommodation and the breakfast was just what was called for. I couldn't recommend the place highly enough!

Absolutely perfect!

We found The Bell by chance by looking for quirky dog friendly pubs for our wedding - and how lucky we were to stumble upon this gem! We had our entire wedding there as well as a fabulous pre-wedding dinner for a lot of our guests the night before. Some of our guests and us both stayed at The Bell for two nights which was amazing. The wedding day itself was so much more than we could’ve ever hoped for. The venue is so quirky, all our guests loved it. The staff - Tessa and all the crew - are amazing! Tessa was constantly keeping us updated leading up to the wedding and so helpful with all of our questions and needs. All of the staff on the day were fantastic - always there for us without being in our faces. And the food was spectacular! Walking the red carpet in the stable then having our speeches there was so unique and memorable. And finishing the night off by all sitting around the fire pit outside toasting marshmallows was the cherry on the cake. There literally is not one thing we could find fault with - we could not recommend this place enough! If you are after a unique quirky friendly intimate place (with amazing bedrooms!). I doubt you’d do any better than choosing The Bell! We only wish we could do it all again as we literally had the most perfect day!

Everything was just so dreamy! From the first contact with The Bell, the wedding itself and till the end. Was stress free, easy planning and worth every penny. The quirky and eye catching decor was perfect, as I didn't have to do much decorating! The food was just lovely, the chef is so talented. The staff were probably the best part of the day: they were organised, professional, approachable and just great. The guests couldn't stop telling me what a great venue it was, how amazing the rooms were, the location and the list goes on. Our wedding is so memorable and wouldn't change a thing. Thank you to The Bell and look forward to come back for our one year anniversary :)

We had our wedding breakfast and party at The Bell and it was the most perfect day. Organising and planning was easy as wedding coordinator 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 couples looking for something a bit different! Thank you Tessa and team, everybody had a great time!

Quirky, fun, delicious!

We chose to have an intimate wedding ceremony and reception with just 27 guests at The Bell on a Thursday in February, and then hosted a big party in London on the Saturday. From the minute we first stepped foot in The Bell, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. It’s not a traditional wedding venue, which is exactly what we were looking for. It’s quirky with a relaxed vibe and made for such a fun wedding. Tessa, Eve and the team were amazing throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and we could really make the day our own. The chef, Oscar, is also great and the food is AMAZING – all of our guests agreed. A few of our favourite things about The Bell include the awesome red carpet (where we chose to have our ceremony), the seriously good Chef’s dessert banquet and the gorgeous rooms (especially the Lodges and Love Nest). We can’t wait to return to celebrate our anniversary!

It's The Staff
Venue Service

By Daryl & Hattie Fitzpatrick, on 12 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Feb 2019

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 though, 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 get all involved with as much or as little as you'd like and ensure that everything goes smoothly which allowed us to enjoy the day.

By Lorenzo Ali, on 02 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Dec 2018

We were the last wedding of 2018 and we couldn’t have picked a more perfect winter wedding venue. We were warmly welcomed from the moment we arrived and married at a wonderful intimate ceremony with family and friends In The Stable. Tessa was superb from day one and her team looked after us amazingly on the day. We loved everything about The Bell especially the accommodation. It’s not surprising they’ve won so many awards. Well deserved.

A perfect day!

By Nicola Carter, on 03 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 29 Dec 2018

What a wonderful venue for a quirky wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed our special day. Tessa, Eve and the team were amazing and everything went so smoothly. Food was terrific and the service superb. With beautiful rooms to stay in as well, it was a fantastic venue for us to get married in!

Venue Service

By Rebecca and Ashley, on 17 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Dec 2018

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

The most perfect venue
Venue Service

By Emily & David, on 02 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Nov 2018

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 for your wedding. The staff were brilliant, especially Tessa and Eve, as nothing was ever too much trouble and their relaxed approach puts you at ease. They were fully on board to try new ideas and showed enthusiasm for them too. The food was exceptional and 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 will look forward to coming back, staying and eating here every year. Thank you The Bell.
