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.
