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.

During this lockdown, we have a small team working, under strict distancing and hygiene practices.

We are open from 10am to 2pm, Friday to Sunday, for 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.


Our ever-popular Friday-nighter offers you a host of hot takeaway favourites and pub classics. We operate from 5.30 to 8pm and you can pre-order online until 4pm on the day, for collection or delivery to Wannock, East Dean and everywhere in between. You can also call us until 6pm, for collection within the hour. Scroll down for this week’s menu and to order.


Take a little bit of the Eight Bells home with you, with our ‘Heat & Eat’ pub favourites (including homemade pies and puddings) and our Sunday Roast kits — everything you need for an eight-part Sunday lunch, for two, four or six people. You can pre-order any of these for collection between 10am and 2pm on Saturday and Sunday, or for delivery as far as Polegate, East Dean and Eastbourne during those times. Read on for details.
