We would like to thank everybody that took part in the St Wilfrid's Hospice charity quiz on the 26th February. We raised a phenomenal amount of money £1410 and a great evening was had by all. Also a special thank you to all of our kind suppliers who donated a very generous array of prizes for the raffle. We hope to see you all next year for an even more successful event.
Set in 7 acres of beautiful Sussex countryside, the Yew Tree Inn Chalvington is a traditional pub situated 6 miles from Hailsham, close to the county town of Lewes and the seaside town of Eastbourne. We are a free house offering fine ales and home cooked food served both inside and out.
The Yew Tree Inn Chalvington is a child and dog friendly pub with a large patio, children's play area, extensive grounds and a wonderful large conservatory - perfect for parties. Unusually, we also have a cricket field and campsite!
Parts of the pub go back to 1642 when it was part of the Pelham Estate and the Pelham Buckle is still on the fireback in the inglenook. The pub is thought to have been a farm worker's cottage back in 1642, but by the time it got to 1860 it is believed to have been a coaching inn and as far as it is known, it has always been called the Yew Tree Inn.
The pub has only ever had 3 owners! Jim took over in 1977 and has since been joined by Mark, John, Wiggy and Buster the dog. Then in 2006 Izzy was appointed manager to run this eccentric venture and the rest they say is history!
The Yew Tree Inn Chalvington is a free house offering a range of beers, including guest real ales from Youngs, Charles Wells & local breweries like East Sussex's Long Man Brewery. While the food we serve is traditional pub food like beef stew & liver & bacon.
The Yew Tree Inn is steeped in cricketing history, having been the home of Chalvington and Ripe Cricket Club since 1762. Cricket still continues at the Yew Tree Inn Chalvington, with several full length matches being played each week throughout the Summer. We are always looking for new players so please contact us if you would like to join in. With such beautiful grounds it is also a great place to just come along and watch, sit back and enjoy!
