Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Brecknock Arms

Fine Victorian Harvey's pub, close to Frant station but actually in the tiny village of Bells Yew Green (and overlooking the eponymous area of open space). Partly opened-out interior, with dining areas off to one side and beyond the counter. Plainly furnished two-part beer garden at the back. Three of four handpumps in use, dispensing the ubiquitous Sussex Best (£3.80, in excellent form, as you would expect), IPA and Wild Hop. Well worth seeking out.

Located on the East Sussex/Kent border in Bells Yew Green is The Brecknock Arms. Frant Railway Station is just up the road and there is some parking outside the front of the pub. This is a Harvey’s establishment and the four hand pumps on the bar were drawing Old Ale, Best, Hadlow and Dark Mild. There is also some standard draught and food is served daily from midday until 14:00 and 18:30 until 21:00.
The interior is split into three sections with the bar and some seating to the left and another area to the right that houses a plasma screen, log fire and dartboard. There is more seating in an area to the rear of the pub and there is a garden out the back that is separated from a field of sheep by the railway line. I found the bloke running the bar, who I took to be the governor, to be very friendly and welcoming. The BBC darts was on the plasma and there was a radio playing behind the bar.

I liked it in here and would return for another nice pint of Old Ale.
