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.

Temporary closure...

Following our intial decision not to re-open due to the Government's decision to place us into Tier 2 and impose the new tighter restrictions on the way we trade, from December 26th we will be placed into Tier 4 and therefore unable to re-open at this time.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you soon to enjoy our delicious food and drink in our unique setting.

The New Normal

Following the current closure, when we re-open we intend to return to our modified opening and food times. We will also be operating table service only, so to avoid disappointment please book on 01323 811326 and note that masks must be worn at all times when not seated at your table.

Please ensure you have read our detailed Ts&Cs before visiting the pub. We thank you for your cooperation in these difficult times, but we trust you will still find a warm welcome, whilst we keep customers and staff safe and look forward to when we can all return to some form of normality.
