Major refurbishment planned

A significant refurbishment will transform The Six Bells into a food-led, premium, country pub. There will be new lighting with dimmer switches to create ambiance. We will also redecorate the existing bar, overhaul under counters, strip and restain the existing bar top. The existing flooring will be upgraded with new vinyl flooring and carpet. The toilets will be refurbished and there will be minor works to kitchen & cellar. This will feel like a completely new pub.

There will also be works completed in the garden & courtyard space, with new F&F to be supplied by the new licensee. The pub frontage will benefit from a redecoration. We will be maintaining the flint stone finish but adding new signage and lighting to make the site more visible and highlight the pubs offering.


The Six Bells is in the seaside town of Littlehampton in West Sussex. Littlehampton is a town, seaside resort, pleasure harbour, and the most populous civil parish in the Arun District of West Sussex, England. It is an affluent area with 57% medium affluence and 18% high affluence.  Within a 10-minute walk time, there is one other pub. This pub acts as a wet-only pub, so the Six Bells has the opportunity to drive food trade for the local customer base.

Untapped potential

The Six Bells has the potential to be the best pub in the town. An all-new look and feel, as well as quality food and drinks offer, will stand this pub above the limited competition in the nearby area. The Six Bells is primed to be a ‘great pub with great food’, which is made possible by its 40 internal covers, function room and kitchen facilities. All we’re looking for is the right person to take on the pub…
