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.

    Not a very good experience unfortunately. We booked a table for 7pm and were near a table of four adults with four young children. The children were noisy, crying, continuously getting up moving around or playing on their IPads with the sound on. Children just being children but not what we were looking forward to in a relaxing dining experience. When we left at 8.45, they were still there. The restaurant area is adjacent to the bar area which was also quite noisy with Friday evening drinkers. The menu was not that extensive and my fried haddock was coated in very thick batter and my "chips" were really thick chunks of potato that were more suited for door stops. My starter of whitebait however was very nice. All in all not really worth the money they charged.
    We won't be going back.

    Marvellous place, lots of lovely quirks like the book pile holding up the ceiling, the 'nest' above the Lover's Nest room. Great quality Harveys, attentive staff, splendid bread and the food was great. Only criticism would be that there wasn't much ice in the G&T, but otherwise a fantastic venue that I will be recommending. Many thanks.

    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.
