The Bell in Ticehurst

The feel

Our story stretches back to 1560 when The Bell was a humble coaching inn. We have worked hard to bring the pub up to date, but have made sure to preserve its character and charm. No matter what you’re visualising for your special day, the dedicated team will make it a reality. Whether you’re hoping for something rustic and quirky or you’re dreaming of an elegant fairy-tale wedding…this adaptable venue can do it all!
The setting:
Our beautiful sixteenth-century inn is situated in the picturesque East Sussex countryside. The Bell in Ticehurst has a distinct ambience and it’s definitely not your run-of-the-mill venue.
Despite the countryside location, it is still easily accessible by both road and rail and is within close reach of both London and Brighton.
Our venue:
The Big Room can host up to 90 guests (seated), and 120 guests for your evening celebrations. The uniquely designed wallpaper and grandiose collection of chandeliers offer an unforgettable space to wine, dine, and dance the night away.
Couples have the option to enjoy canapes and cocktails from their very own personal bar in the Stables. You can also enjoy the cosy Snug, the perfect place to wind down and relax after your ceremony and throughout the evening.
If you’re hoping to extend your celebrations, The Bell has 11 individually designed bedrooms, each with its own personality.
Package Details:
  • Exclusive use of The Big Room, for your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening party
  • Exclusive use of The Stables for your drink’s reception, and general evening activities (with your very own bar)
  • Drinks reception with your choice of drink and canapes
  • Three-course wedding breakfast with wine on the table
  • The option of an evening buffet
  • A dedicated team to look after you both in the lead-up and on the day
  • All the little extras (tables, chairs, tableware, easels, cake knife & board)
