Food and drink

Great tasting traditional pub food and real ales


We serve traditional pub food prepared and cooked at the Yew Tree Inn Chalvington, from locally sourced ingredients whenever we can. For example, a lot of our meat, particularly our beef and turkey, is supplied by Mark Thomas, who has a 1000 acre farm just down the road.

We change our menu on a regular basis, sometimes daily but for more details, including prices please take a look at our sample Main Menu.

At lunchtimes there's also a selection of freshly made sandwiches to choose from and every Sunday we offer a choice of roasts served with all the trimmings, alongside a few of our traditional dishes. Please see our sample Sunday Menu for ideas.


The Yew Tree Inn Chalvington is a free house with a great range of drinks including a number of favourites.

We usually serve local real ale Sussex Best from Harvey's Brewery along with East Coast IPA from Greene King.

We also offer on tap Becks Vier, Peroni, Stella, Guinness and Westons Stowford Press.

All our wines are served by the glass and by the bottle and in addition to the drinks listed above, we also offer a comprehensive range of spirits, mixers and soft drinks.

Our wonderful new conservatory can cater for larger parties of up to 50 people inside the Yew Tree Inn Chalvington
