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.

We now operate a booking only system on Sundays. To avoid disappointment please ensure you have booked your table on 01323 811326. If you do not book there is a very good chance that we will not be able to accommodate you.

From 9th September our kitchen will be closed on Mondays. Bar open as usual 10am to 11pm.
