Why, oh why, oh why is this handsome and historic pub building, set in the middle of beautiful Bexhill still boarded up and still going to waste?
It's been this way for getting onto nearly a year now.
The former tenant was a fool in running this place into the ground; it's a solid, well built Georgian/Victorian, that was poorly decorated within, in a camp/modern/B&Q design, rather than just keeping to clean, bare boards, a tasteful lick of paint and a regular rub of furniture polish.
The beer was poorly presented and the staff, unwelcoming, and suspect in their outward character. More pikey than proper pub professional management that one would expect to service the average middle class plus, Daily Mail/Telegraph reader that abide in Bexhill on sea;both young and old.
There are more than enough drinking dens of squalor for the tattooed, in-bred, knuckle-dragging, baseball capped and grey jogging bottom clad customer/chums that the previous bar staff catered for, to go to; The Sovereign opposite the station for example.
What Bexhill-on-sea is crying out for, is a pleasant, clean, professionally run, and welcoming establishment with good Ales and Lagers. The Bell is the ideal place for such a place to capture that majority in town who want a decent, respectable local to visit, but can't find one nearby. Come on Messrs Fullers, Youngs, Sam Smiths, get down to Bexhill and buy The Bell!
Still boarded up last time I went past.

I stopped for a breather on walk to Bexhill Hospital from station mid-day and found it quiet (but then a weekday) but friendly. Well kept beer so worth a visit for a usually hidden part of Bexhill.
