About The Bell in Ticehurst

Calling all engaged couples in and around East Sussex, if you're looking for a wedding venue that combines a unique sense of style, countryside location and fantastic food, The Bell in Ticehurst should be on your must-visit list. 

A 16th-century coaching inn, this historic building has a fairytale feel from the first moment guests see it. Nestled in the East Sussex countryside, inside you'll find a main restaurant decked out with wooden-beamed doorways and a huge hearth, all dating back to 1506. Over the years it's been transformed, extended and remodelled to make way for new function spaces, but its historic origins remain and are special part of enjoying this wedding venue. 

The Bell in Ticehurst has worked hard to create a formula that offers couples a seamless shape of their day. Generally, the knot is tied in the the Big Room where a red carpet is rolled out for the aisle walk, family and friends take a perch on bistro chairs upholstered in a rainbow of colours and patterns and industrial lighting hangs from the ceiling. 

From here, the wedding breakfast and evening festivities take place in the Big Room, an opulant, unique space decorated with sprawling woodland murals across the walls and a string of glittering chandeliers overhead. Here, 90 people can be seated and 120 are welcomed for dancing. Huge windows flanked by red, velvet curtains and vintage seating come together for a wow-worthy backdrop for both your event and fabulous photographs.

When it comes to food, leave everything to head chef Mark Charter and his team who are dedicated to working with the best suppliers Sussex has to offer and creating fresh-tasting, ingredient-led menus which rely on the seasons. While there are no sample menus online, previous dishes have included the likes of lamb with watercress puree, butternut squash fondant and Douglas Fir.

Testimonials For The Bell in Ticehurst

We wanted to send a massive thank youAPRIL, 2023

We wanted to send a massive thank you to the team for making our day so special on Saturday. You are all brilliant at your jobs. From Becky and Pip answering a gazillion questions from us, to Paris and crew working hard before and during the wedding. Special shout out to Oscar who on the day was a dream but also made sure we had fun during our tasting too. The barman and rest of staff too were such good fun. Everyone loved the decor, the food and the rooms /lodges. The firepit and garden were the cherry on top of an enormous multi-layered beautiful cake.

Sophie & Luke

It was the first place we saw and we knew it was right for usAPRIL, 2023

I lost count of the number of times people commented on how much they loved the venue for our wedding. It was the first place we saw and we knew it was right for us. We loved the quirky vibe and it already looked amazing so it didn’t take much additional decoration. The staff were all super helpful from the first enquiry until the day itself. Particular thanks go to Jess and Joh for coordination the day and taking the pressure off so we could focus on having fun! They really took all the stress out of the day. The red carpet walk made for some awesome and unique photos, as did the beautiful garden with tulips in bloom. We look forward to coming back for our anniversary stay!

A big fat recommendation from usFEBRUARY, 2023

We had the most fantastic wedding at The Bell. Throughout the whole process everyone at the bell were accommodating and helpful team mates who thought of details that even we had overlooked. The day itself was run like clockwork but not in a way that made it feel mechanical. Jess was just attentive enough, appearing at moments to keep things on track but blending into the background for the majority.The use of the space is fantastic and many of our guests have complimented how much we were able to do with it and, of course, how fun and quirky it was. A big fat recommendation from us.

Hannah & Phil

Every member of staff went out of their way to ensure we had the perfect dayDECEMBER, 2022

We cannot thank the staff at The Bell enough for their superb service. From the moment we booked we were so impressed with how Tessa our wedding coordinator made sure our day was exactly what we wanted. The food was sublime and every member of staff went out of their way to ensure we had the perfect day. Special mention to Jess who made sure our day ran like clockwork. Would thoroughly recommend
