Our toilets will be cleaned and sanitised at regular intervals with anti-bacterial wipes in every toilet for customer use before and after touching surfaces.  There will be one door to enter the pub and one to exit to avoid crossing paths and reduced tables to keep to the 1 metre rule.  All of our staff will be wearing face visors if appropriate and Perspex screens have been installed in our outside bar for further protection.  We have commissioned Freetime Cleaning to regularly sanitise inside and outside the pub and the B&B with electrostatic spray.  The benefits of electostatic sanitising: Disinfects in a highly efficient, effective and environmentally friendly manner. Improves infection control and the spread of viruses. No danger of bacterial resistance. Uniform disinfection of all surfaces. No risk to humans, animals, plants or the environment. Hospital grade disinfectant. For more information see  We encourage the use of contactless cards wherever possible to minimise the handling of cash but understand that this is not always possible so will accept cash if necessary.  We also ask that you call us to book a table even if you are just coming in for a drink as unfortunately sitting at the bar is a no go, as is ‘vertical drinking’ – all drinks must be consumed sat down at a table to comply with government guidelines.  There are a few nice changes too including a brand new umbrella canopy on our decking, and newly refurbished bells!  We are so looking forward to welcoming you back to The Eight Bells – we’ve missed you!  Sas, David, Mollie, Belle and The Eight Bells Team  Our Opening hours are: Pub: 12-10pm every day Food: Monday – Saturday 12 -3pm and 6 - 9 pm Fish and Chip Fridays (takeaway ) 5 - 9 pm  Sunday (Roasts & Light Bites): 12 – 4  MAIN MENU SILVER BELLS MENU SUNDAY ROAST MENU    To comply with social distancing, please give us a call, place your order and we will allocate a time slot for you to pick up your pizza    The Eight Bells  The Street, Bolney, Haywards Heath, RH17 5QW 01444 881396   All major debit/credit cards accepted.    GO TO TRIPADVISOR                    


Named after the characteristic feature of the Parish Church, The Eight Bells freehouse is a true village pub, serving local ales and wines. 

Family owned and run, at The Eight Bells we pride ourselves on a wide menu, the majority of which is made on the premises, freshly cooked to order. The chefs are always willing to accommodate any special dietary requirements. 
Family friendly, with a non-smoking outside decked area and childrens play section, there is also baby changing and disabled access/facilities. 
We are also pet friendly, and welcome dogs into The Eight Bells. 
Nestled neatly at the southerly end of Bolney’s historic village street, The Eight Bells is close to Hickstead, Wakehurst Place, and conveniently placed for Brighton and Gatwick. 
The Eight Bells is well known for its pub lunches and fantastic evening meals. We can cater for special diets and intolerances such as gluten or dairy, so please do ask, we are happy to help.  
Relax in one of our cosy log-fired bars and soak up the atmosphere of a friendly, traditional pub.
