The Eight Bells, owned by a Jevington family, is a welcoming country pub in the historic downland village of Jevington.

The pub is over 300 years old, and sits at the heart of the village high above Eastbourne in the South Downs National Park. It is on the South Downs Way and near to Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters Country Park. We serve local ales and seasonal food and offer a large and well presented garden, which includes a barn and sheltered terrace for dining, with lovely views of the South Downs.

A fantastic local. We visited yesterday after giving up at The Beach Deck in Eastbourne and although busy a table was cleared, great service and beer. A country pub with a great atmosphere, location and staff!
