Sorry to say it looks like flint. Flint pretends to be a lot of different things.
If you do an internet search for fossil teeth then look at the images you will see the difference. Teeth are unmistakable.

Hello and welcome to the forum.
I am 99% certain that this is not a tooth but a flint from the chalk. If you give it a good scrub and test it by trying to scratch it with something steel and take a photo of the wider end (cross section) this will confirm it for me. The whole of the area was sea in the Cretaceous period - I have checked the geology for you.
