Chawton Village Hall is located on Winchester Road, Chawton (post code GU34 1SB).

The Hall was built in 1924 on land given to the village by Edward Knight of Chawton House. It is a charity and is managed and maintained by a management committee of seven.

Dormer windows, high beams, leaded lights windows, bare brickwork, and doors, latches and locks gives the building an arts and crafts feel.
