Nestled in the heart of an English country village, The Bell dates back to 1560. Heart-warming British dishes are served in eccentric but cosy surrounds, complete with a roaring log fire.

Seasonally changing menus are packed with fresh produce. Using ingredients sourced from local farms and suppliers, as well as fish fresh from the Sussex coast, expect uncomplicated British favourites alongside flavour-packed European dishes.

Filled with curiosities, The Bell’s eclectic design makes for a unique setting. Offering a host of local ales, the cosy bar exudes rustic charm, complete with wooden beams and exposed brickwork, whilst a tranquil beer garden is on hand for al fresco drinking and dining in warmer weather.

Close to many local attractions including several National Trust properties, Bewl Water and Bedgebury Pinetum, find The Bell Ticehurst a 20-minute drive from Tunbridge Wells.

    8 of us had an excellent lunch. Starters were delicious and varied. Main courses were stylishly presented and full of flavour. Several of our party opted for the roast chicken for 2 which was amazing. Sadly we had no room left for pudding. When we return we will have main and pudding to ensure we get to experience the full extent of The Bells menu.

    Gorgeous dining room, fabulous food and very friendly staff.
    The Cote de Boeuf was perfectly cooked and the Kimchi Hollandaise was a lovely twist.

    We had a fabulous lunch of battered fish and chips - both cooked perfectly with home made tartare sauce and the service was friendly and efficient. We would definitely return and and recommend to friends. Nice small menu so you know that it is highly likely everything is cooked to order and is fresh and it was! The pub itself had character and had a great atmosphere.

    Everyone in our party of 10 could not fault the food. It was superb. Slight hiccup with the bill but this was resolved very quickly. Looking forward to coming back.

    The Bell is a lovely pub, great atmosphere, nice staff, excellent food with Picassa and Moore original prints on the walls and a tower of books.

    Met with a smile from all staff and quickly offered a table for two. Menu was offered and the waiter recommended the Sea Bream and soup of the day. This sounded like a good choice and we chose to order the said meals. My wife and I loved every mouthful and the surroundings were unique and comfortable. We had an early booking and the restaurant soon began to fill. The Bell is not just a village pub but a nice place to meet with friends. I was glad I booked as I travelled some miles during the day and the booking process was so simple. Parking was limited, I was unable to use the car park.
