About us


THE BRICKLAYERS ARMS

 

The Bricklayers Arms is a delightful lakeside public house, comprising three terraced cottages in a charming Kent village. The pub is situated at the end of the picturesque Darent Vally Walk. The sign represents Sir Winston Churchill, an expert bricklayer and whose home was at nearby Chartwell.

We pride ourselves on getting involved with the local community and providing a warm and friendly welcome to our visitors. We serve Harvey's Best Bitter straight from the barrel, a fantastic range of wine and beautifully home cooked British pub food. Located opposite the Chipstead Sailing Lake, we are perfectly positioned for a warm bowl of soup after a walk, a summer cider on the green, or a comforting meal in front of our real, open log fire.

Harvey's


THE SUSSEX BREWERS

 

Harvey's of Lewes is the oldest independent brewery in Sussex and is still in the Harvey family after eight generations.

The history of brewing at Harvey’s dates back over 200 years and the impressive Victorian Gothic tower is a Lewes landmark which has been adapted over the past 150 years to house a modern brewing plant whilst still producing beer made in the traditional way.

Harvey’s is still very much a local brewery – their beers are distributed within a 50 miles radius and they pursue a policy of ‘local sustainability.  Their hops come from Sussex, Kent and Surrey and the ‘Spent Hops’ find their way back to the land as fertiliser.    Harvey’s ‘Spent Grains’ are fed to the dairy herd at nearby Plumpton Agricultural College.

Spring water for brewing is drawn via an artesian well 60 feet below the premises. This and their yeast strain used for half a century combine to produce a range of beers encompassing every style from Porter to Light Mild’s.

Our flagship Sussex Best Bitter evolved in the post war period and is Harvey’s most popular and recognisable ale.  It has recently been voted Champion Best Bitter of Britain for two consecutive years.
