Eight Bells

For hundreds of years, the Eight Bells has been at the heart of Jevington, a small village in the South Downs, just outside Eastbourne. This small, independently owned free house has a rich history, welcoming bar and gardens with dramatic views of the downs.

We will re-open on Wednesday 14th April and are now taking bookings for breakfast and lunch in the garden. A number of tables will be covered by our marquee, in case of rain, but will now be open-sided in order to qualify as an outside space. We are also taking bookings for inside, including dinner reservations, for Wednesday 19th May onwards.


During this lockdown, we are open from 10am to 2pm, Friday to Sunday, for our Grab & Go teas and coffees, pastries and hot rolls — ideal if you’re walking or cycling across the downs. We also have our Friday Night Takeaways, and weekend ‘Pub at Home’ — featuring our Sunday roast kits, pies, puddings, wine and beer! Please note that alcohol can only be sold for delivery to your home and nothing can be consumed on the premises. Scroll down for this week’s menus and to order. Our order forms have further information on availability and delivery options


Our finish-at-home Mother’s Day Kits go on sale on 1st March — a great three-course feast to show mum the love, which just needs to be popped in the oven. Make sure you’re signed up to our weekly email or follow us on Instagram & Facebook, for details.
