Discovered this hidden gem by accident and then took friends there for the weekend. Had the best weekend for a long time. Staff all very friendly, food excellent and accommodation very, very comfortable. Wish we had a pub like this in our home town. Can't wait to return.

Approximately our 6th visit to the Eight Bells. Absolutely love it. Warren and team are great really make you feel welcome. The cottage is lovely and the rooms are immaculate. If you go definitely eat in the restaurant the food is great and just a stroll across the lane so no drinking and driving! As it was December the pub...

Spent one night here whilst visiting family. Great welcome by "Posh Jim". Everything immaculately clean, extremely comfortable bed, good water pressure from shower, large fluffy towels, good selection of tea/coffee making items. Accommodation is across the street from The Eight Bells in a 500 year old cottage and near the Church. There is also a very comfortable sitting area which...

The double rooms are absolutely first class and the large en-suite bathroom one of the best we have encountered. Everything is very clean with tea/coffee making facilities, bottled water and toiletries supplied. Just Perfect. We also ate at the pub and would certainly do so again. Good food at good prices and lots of gluten free options.

Lovely and quiet place to stay we found it very relaxing. Stay for two nights. The bedroom was perfect and exceptionally clean, the food was great and the owners and their staff are very nice people who go out of their way to help. Can't recommend this establishment highly enough.

A perfect, central location for my Cricket tour. Very comfortable room and the lion-foot bath was brilliant for the post match soak! Wednesday night's 'steak deal' in the pub restaurant was very good value for money and the breakfasts was big and tasty.

Spent a night with family at the Eight Bells when visiting the Bolney vineyard. The accommodation, just across the road from the pub, was excellent with an outstanding bathroom and extremely comfortable bed. To call it a B&B does not do it justice. Also lovely to hear the church bells just behind the house (not intrusive) and had a very...

Good News! Waz and Emma are back and the normal excellent service has been resumed. We sat in the bar and had delicious brie and bacon ciabattas. Good ambiance with the Over 60s enjoying their meal in the restaurant.

We stayed for one night and found the B&B to be both clean and well appointed. The building is beautiful and people who served us were polite and helpful regarding ordering taxis. The breakfast was good too. Overall a good stay in a lovely room.
