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.

One of the best places for excellent lunch or dinner, very friendly cosy atmosphere and the staff are always brilliant and incredibly helpful. We had a pram so our table had plenty of space , my wife has a milk allergy which they catered for without any hassles and the whole menu could be made available to her. Sunday roast is one of the best we have had and we will be going back for sure!

Excellent Blackboys sparkling wine to start. Starter served as a starter and main courses (3 roast beef-wonderfully red and a large gambas) to follow. All most enjoyable. Service good but fell away a little towards the end.

Such amazing service, great staff. Lovely burgers but otherwise a slightly weird menu with in-between sized dishes, not really starters but not really mains... An interesting aubergine dish at £8 but far too small for a dinner, but too big as a starter.... But really beautiful pub, loads of character. Harvey's beer, delicious coffees, fantastic fire, pretty garden. And the best service I've had anywhere in ages.

Had a wonderful lunch. Fantastic food very different from the usual pub menus. The Padron peppers were amazing and my cod was perfectly cooked. Staff very friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to return and hopefully stay overnight.

I am allergic to all alliums but not a problem for The Bell. Thank you to the chef, but thanks especially to our charming server Patrick.

Terrific lunch, clever mix-and-match menu, superbly cooked. I had the burger, delicious, and my wife the chicken, excellent. Really helpful staff, easy to book. This place deserves to do really well. Good luck to them.
