A traditional pub with a great cricketing history...

Welcome to the Yew Tree Inn situated in the village of Chalvington in the beautiful Sussex countryside, close to Hailsham, Lewes and Eastbourne.

Pub Open Again!

We are so excited to be able to welcome you back to the Yew Tree Chalvington at a safe distance of course.

We have created a completely new outdoor pub in place of our usual wedding marquee. Fully stocked with all of your favourite draft beers and cider as well as our usual fantastic range of gins, bottled products, wines, and of course a great selection of spirits.

We have plenty of sheltered marquee covered areas as well to take account of the great British weather, but feel free to bring a blanket just in case. We have new outdoor toilet facilities for your convenience and our children's play area is also open.

The Yew Tree has put a lot of time and effort into putting measures in place to abide by Government regulations, please ensure you follow these guidelines. They are for your safety as well as the safety of our team so please respect the measures we have put in place.

We have plenty of space in our beautiful beer garden which means we have been able to ensure that safety procedures have been met whilst maintaining a fun and relaxed environment. So no table booking will be required, we will be operating a first come, first served basis.

Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see you all very soon.

Camping Open Again!

The campsite at the Yew Tree Inn Chalvington is now open again on a bookings only basis.

Costs are just £10 per tent per night or £15 per camper van per night, with great pub food, pizzas at the weekend and real ale to purchase right on site!

Please ensure you have read the new Camping Rules as these are different to previous visits. Then email us to enquire about availability for your chosen dates.

Please note we are operating a bookings only system to make sure we can regulate the number of visitors to our camping site. So it is essential to enquire about availability and that you have confirmation from us that we can accommodate your party before your arrival.

One more request. Please pay at the bar before pitching your tent. Then relax and enjoy your stay!


Please take a look at our tempting new Outdoor Menu. We are operating with a reduced menu, as we have had to minimise our staffing levels to ensure their safety, but we are sure you will agree, all the dishes are just as delicious as ever.

We will also have the fantastic Pizza Leonati on site Friday 5-8.30pm, Saturday 1-8.30pm & Sunday 12.30-4.00pm serving delicious Neopolitan pizzas and more.

The Yew Tree

The pub is thought to have been a coaching inn since 1860 and always known as the Yew Tree, with some areas dating back to 1642.

Today, the Yew Tree Inn Chalvington is set in 7 acres of beautiful Sussex countryside and is a traditional pub and free house offering a range of beers, including guest real ales from local breweries and delicious home cooked food.

We are a child and dog friendly pub with a large patio, children's play area, extensive grounds and a wonderful large conservatory - perfect for parties.

Chalvington is a wonderful area for walking and cycling, with both the South Downs Way and the Vanguard Way passing close by.

There are also plenty of places of interest such as Lewes Castle, Pevensey Castle and Alfriston within easy travelling distance of the Yew Tree Inn.
