The Chequers is a 15th Century Inn of traditional style, situated in the heart of the English hopping countryside. Heavily beamed with a collection of artefacts throughout, the Chequers offers a relaxed atmosphere in a centuries old environment, representing a true family village pub. The award winning Chequers is listed in the CAMRA Good Pub Guide 2016 and was one of the first pubs in the South to be awarded the Cask Marque Award for serving quality real ale.

Good quality, value for money food, including daily specials, pies, Sunday roast and a children's menu. Speciality house dishes such as authentic Spanish paella and tapas are available for special occasions if pre-booked.

The Chequers is a traditional village country pub with no gimmicks, there's plenty of others that can do that well - just real ale, real food and real people.

We have a great selection of home cooked food available at The Chequers. On Sundays we always offer a selection of delicious roast dinners, including the Chequers Roast Trio, which is three Yorkshire puddings filled with each different meat served with roast potatoes and vegetables. Please go to our menu page to see an example of our usual menu as well as details of our Sausage Thursday menu.
