Welcome to our friendly village pub in the heart of the South Downs.
The perfect spot to start your adventure in the National Park.

In the centre of Cocking village, immediately below the South Downs Way, and now owned by the local community, the Blue Bell at Cocking is a welcoming free house, serving fresh local produce and a choice of local ales, and excellent coffee. We have a garden with Downs views and are dog friendly in our public areas. We are also an official South Downs Information Point, providing comprehensive information on the surrounding area, and offer cycle repair facilities on site.
