Eight Bells


For 350 years, the Eight Bells has been at the heart of Jevington, set in the first valley of the South Downs, to the west of Eastbourne. This small, independently owned free house has a rich history, cosy interiors and gardens with dramatic views of the rolling downland.


We’ve been open since the beginning of June for our highly acclaimed Friday Night Takeaway and weekend Grab & Go picnic menu. Our garden is also now open for pub favourites every Saturday lunchtime and for Roasts on Sundays – and, from 11 July, we will be opening inside for Saturday dinners. Scroll down for all the menus, times and booking details.

We’re complying to the letter with Covid-related guidelines, so our seating has been spaced out, our staff will be wearing appropriate PPE, and we will ask you to follow some simple and clear guidelines while on the property, so everyone can enjoy their experience without any concerns.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Eight Bells again soon. In the meantime, to keep up to date with all our news, sign up to our mailing list below.
