The Bell in Ticehurst celebrates AA food award for second year

The Bell in Ticehurst has been recognised for its ‘culinary excellence’ once again in 2024 with the popular pub receiving a Double AA Rosette for its February menu.

The Double AA Rosette is a recognition for restaurants that exhibit a high standard of cuisine, demonstrating skilful technique, quality ingredients, and a commitment to delivering a memorable dining experience.

The pub’s February menu was highly praised and features starters such as the Twice Baked Burwash Rose Soufflé, Braised Pork Cheeks, and Potted Trout, with Braised Beef Brisket, Maple Smoked Parsnip, or Poached Cod available for the main course.

For dessert, the choices on offer include the Tropical Fruit Mess and the Dark Chocolate and Coffee Pave.

The pub, located in a 16th-century building in the heart of the village of Ticehurst, has also recently been included in the 2024 Michelin Guide.

Reflecting on its recent accolade, The Bell in Ticehurst General Manager, Daniel Courtney said: “To receive such recognition from the AA for the second year in a row is such a positive statement. Our success is solely down to our incredible hardworking team, without whom we are nothing.

“Our Head Chef Mark Charker has made consistency the key byword in the kitchen and to gain two Rosettes from the AA affirms this.

“We are also doubling down and growing the business at a time when pubs are shutting at such an incredible rate. We want to be the change and that glimmer of hope to show that hospitality is alive and well,” added Daniel.
