A Sussex establishment has been included in a list of the best country pubs with bedrooms for lunch and a winter walk.

The Bell in Ticehurst was one of 20 pubs to be named by The Guardian.

The pub was also recently included in a list of the best country pubs with rooms in the UK by Conde Nast Traveller.

The Guardian said of The Bell: “A collection of birdboxes, a silver pig, a stuffed peregrine falcon on a perch … there are curious items filling almost every corner of the Bell.

“The gents’ loos even sport brass horns instead of urinals. But the Bell is not just quirky. Its award-scooping food reinvents pub classics: potato salad with horseradish or a venison burger with Sussex cheddar and pickled red onions.

“Upstairs, the sumptuous eccentricity continues. With names like Hush of Trees and The Moon Wild, each bedroom is decorated with a silver birch tree trunk, and there are attic beams, arched windows and vintage tiles.”

Other pubs on the list included the Grade I listed George Inn, Norton St Philip in Somerset.

The building, dating from the 14th century is one of several taverns vying for the title of England’s oldest pub.

Also on the list is the family-run Silverdale Hotel in Lancashire. The Guardian said the pub is "warm and traditional" with real ales and a generous menu.
