Practically perfect in every way
By Amy & Adam, on 02 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Sep 2018
From start to finish the bells service and attention to detail was incredible! We had our perfect day without having to worry too much! The quirky venue will make your guests remember your special day too. One of the issues we had that in the back of our minds in the run up to the wedding, was people would be hungry after the meal like other weddings we've been too and being in a village it wouldn't be easy to pop out and get something. However everyone commented about how amazing the food was and how filling it was. Not one person made the comment about needing more

We could not be more impressed with The Bell Inn! Tessa and all the staff were highly competent, professional and friendly. The venue is unique and beautiful, the food was excellent and the day went completely smoothly, we were so happy!
Perfect venue for a wedding

From the moment we first visited here to attend a wedding fair we both fell in love with the place. The staff are incredibly friendly, welcoming and professional. As a venue it is set up brilliantly for weddings, they have plenty of quirky little details that make it look and feel special. On the day everything ran very smoothly with attentive staff and incredible food, highly recommended.

We started our wedding venue hunt by searching for 'quirky wedding venues' and The Bell appeared on our search. On looking at their website we instantly knew we wanted to go visit and take a closer look. We did, and we knew as soon as we arrived this was the the place we wanted to get married. The quaint little village of Ticehurst is the perfect location for such a venue. When inside the Bell we discovered that we were actually in 'quirky' heaven, from the trombone urinals to the bowler hat lampshades, The Bell ticked all the boxes. Tessa and all the staff were all so helpful and welcoming. From the moment we booked it until the morning after the wedding, all our expectations were exceeded and we had an amazing day and night, topped off by a stay in 'The Love Nest'. We actually booked all the hotel rooms for all our family and friends, who absolutely fell in love with the place!! To Sum Up.... Great food, the best staff, stunning rooms, beautiful garden and the perfect wedding day that we wished for!! Oh and our dog, Pablo, loved it too!!!!
What a venue!!!

We can not recommend The Bell highly enough to anyone wanting their day to run as seamlessly and feel as happy, relaxed and fun as ours was! We cannot thank Tessa and all the staff there enough. They are true pros at what they do! The Bell is so quirky and cool, there really is no other venue like it! Thank you for making our day so special!

Perfect pooch-friendly venue
By James Gardner-Martin, on 07 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2018
We chose The Bell initially because we wanted somewhere totally dog-friendly as our boys were an integral part of the ceremony we had planned. On our first visit, we were hooked by the unusual décor, fantastic bar service and function rooms. We decided to get married in The Stable, which was brilliant. Our guests lined the railings and we had a "catwalk" down the big table with the dogs in tow. The wedding manager Tessa helped us plan everything from start to finish. The fact that we could book out all the rooms for our guests was ideal as we wanted everyone to mix the night before as well. Highly recommended.
10 out of 10!

The perfect setting for a wedding; the ambience, the beautiful surroundings, the attention to detail and absolutely outstanding food. Huge “Thank you!” to Tessa, Eve and all the staff at The Bell for an exceptional, incredible service and making our special day truly special.
Our family and friends are still raving about the hotel rooms and lodges: quirky, comfy and clean and it’s a 10/10 for the breakfast.
If you are planning your wedding, want to stay somewhere special for a weekend or just fancy a spot of lunch, go to The Bell. It’s an amazing place! We will certainly be back!

I cannot thank Tessa and Eve enough for making my wedding day so perfect! A fabulous location, amazing food and exceptional service! I’m a tough cookie to crack having worked in events for a very long time and they delivered a seamless wedding day for us! So professional, caring and the attention to detail is second to none. I could not have asked for more and I will certainly be going back to stay! Thank you for making our day so special, for us and our guests. We won’t forget the efforts you put in and The Bell Inn will always hold a very special place in our hearts.
We got married at The Bell! And LOVED IT!!!

We had our wedding at The Bell in June 2018. We can't speak highly enough of how great the experience was. But let's try!
Tessa who was our contact in the run-up - what an efficient, lovely, friendly and caring girl. She's an absolute star.
Chloe who ran the show on the day - she kept it all moving along perfectly, and was absolutely brilliant in ensuring the day was smooth and hitch-free (apart from the getting-hitched bit!).
Matt and the rest of the team (sorry, forgot their names) - they all grafted away tirelessly, and were brilliant both on the day, and with the gentle service at breakfast the next morning...!
Jorge and Oscar, the Colombian gents at front of house and in the kitchen respectively - awesome food guys, thanks so much.
There were many more working away on the day, who all contributed to the fun magical day. And of course the rooms themselves, which are stunning, unique and lovely.
Thank you so much The Bell, we'll never forget you!

Venue with a difference!
By April and Suse, on 11 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018
From the moment we walked into the Bell we knew we would be married there. Then we were shown the rooms and where the ceremony would be taking place and we totally overwhelmed with how perfect the venue was for us....the attention to detail, the decor, the originality and the size of the venue was totally unexpected, with the added bonus of the perfect English county garden.
It was important to us to choose a venue where the food was as good as the setting, and it was! We were super impressed with all the staff at the Bell, from the organisation from our Wedding planner Tess, to the waitressing and bar staff on the day, nothing was too much trouble for them. All of our guests were as enthralled as we were, and everyone fell in love with the place.
Thank you for the perfect wedding...Sue & April
A venue like no other!
By Stacey Slack, on 12 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 19 May 2018
We looked at venues for over a year, always having The Bell in the backs of our minds.
We were drawn to the small details, the different areas where people could congregate, the air of relaxation, calm and homeliness.
That was before we even met the team and Tessa!
Every step of our journey with The Bell was utterly enjoyable, and as a coordinator myself I felt so reassured having Tessa, and Chloe running our day and all the planning beforehand.
We have had so many compliments on our wedding day from the food, atmosphere, the gorgeous rooms, the fire pit (& marshmallows) and most importantly the fabulous staff who were so attentive but also relaxed enough to feel like part of the day which is exactly what we wanted.
I would thoroughly recommend taking a visit as I don't believe any photo or video can do this venue justice!
We will be visiting again as I am sure my guests will be!
A special place to get married
By Simone & James, on 21 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 12 May 2018
The Bell was the most amazing venue for our beautiful wedding in May 2018. Obviously it is a place with character and just that little bit special if that is your sort of thing. But most importantly, Tessa (!!!) and the rest of the crew are simply wonderful and have made our day. Tessa spent months helping me to organise my scattered brain and move things along (Thanks Tessa!!!). She was there on the day and helped us alongside Reese and other people to move through the day smoothly and without stress. The food was amazing and drinks plenty to go around. Best venue and best staff we could have hoped for!!
