The Bell Inn, Chichester

Welcome to The Bell Inn, Chichester

Make a Booking

The Bell Inn is situated in Chichester, West Sussex, opposite the Chichester Festival Theatre.

We are a traditional pub serving home-made food, with a great selection of hand pulled real ales. It’s welcoming atmosphere and decor makes us one of the few remaining traditional pubs in the city and in June 2022 we became a Free House.

We are open for every matinee performance at Chichester Festival and Minerva Theatre and would advise booking in advance.

To make a reservation please use our booking form or call us on 01243 783388.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
