Restaurant description

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.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    This is a quirky, cosy and friendly venue. The menu is succinct but well rounded. The focus is so obviously on quality and flavour, maintained through a commitment to local and known sources. Staff are friendly and helpful and intolerances and allergies of my party were addressed well.

    We decided to try the bell at ticehurst on recommendation, we all had the fish and chips which was ok, but not amazing for the 15 each. And drinks London prices. Also we asked if possible for a queiter table, but we were seated next to the two largest groups in the dining area? Which were obviously the loudest, friendly staff tho, but wouldn't use again

    Lovely quirky ambience. Everywhere you look there's something to catch your attention. The food was beautiful, tender and flavour some. Terrific service, understated but prompt and attentive.

    Unfortunately an extremely disappointing meal at The Bell for both of us. Vegetables were barely lukewarm as bought out long before main dish. A repeat serving of vegetables no better. Given the main dish @ £19 and sides between £3 -£4 each this was not a cheap meal and I expected more. Unfortunately reluctant to be returning to The Bell any time soon.

    Restaurant is informal and staff,attentive and friendly.Loved the quirky pile of books that seem to be holding up the ceiling! and bowler hats as lampshades. The food was superb and not overpriced.
