This listed coaching inn has played an integral part in the life of Doddington village for over three centuries and oozes history and charm with its oak timbers, mullion windows and inglenook fireplace.
It is also reported to have two resident ghosts - a Cavalier from the English Civil War, it’s rumoured that you can spot him wearing a plumed hat from the overhanging window, and, if you listen carefully, a ghoul with a passion for the piano, reported to be the deceased wife of a past Landlord.
Gayna and Shaun have recently taken over at The Chequers and look forward to welcoming you into their charming Pub. The atmosphere at the Chequers is extremely warm and friendly and it is a great place for an excellent pint and delicious home cooked food.
There is a large family garden. Walkers and ramblers are welcome and the public bar is dog friendly.
All the meats are from the local award winning Butchers. The Sunday Roast at one course for £9.95 and two courses for £12.95 is proving popular, and bookings are advisable. The menu has other pub classics like sausages and mash, and beer battered cod and chips as well as lighter bites and sharing platters and daily changing specials.
The inn has enthusiastic darts and pool teams and provides a full Post Office service every Tuesday between 1pm and 2.30pm. For music lovers there is traditional music on a Sunday afternoon monthly and live music and entertaining evenings are often planned - please check our events listing. There is even a ukulele group that meet and play every Thursday evening.
