Five Bells Bookings

For parties and other event bookings contact us!


Andy & Cat welcome you to The Five Bells Chailey, a 500 year old Grade II listed building, originally built as a Yeoman’s cottage in 1490 and becoming The Five Bells coaching Inn in 1752. All food is homemade, even the bread, and cooked freshly to order.

All our food is homemade (even the bread!) using locally sourced ingredients where ever possible, and is always cooked fresh to order for you to enjoy in either our restaurant, bar dining area, or sumptuous gardens. For those special occasions, we also offer an intimate private dining area for up to 16 people too!

We understand everyone is different and at The Five Bells we want you to enjoy our food as much as us! So if you have any dietary requirements please try to book with us 24hrs in advance and let us know, so that we can do the best for you. With 24hrs notice we can also provide you with a Vegan menu too!
