Jobs

Would you like to join our team? We are recruiting now ready for re-opening.

The Blue Bell at Cocking opened in December 2019 as a community-owned pub, following a village fundraising campaign to prevent the site from being sold as housing.

We are located just below the South Downs Way in the South Downs National Park and are a SDNP partner pub.

In summer we have a busy indoor and outdoor trade with walkers and cyclists and a good B&B trade in our 3 refurbished rooms. We also have local passing trade as we are on the main road between Midhurst and Chichester and on a half-hourly bus route.
