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 and, if you listen carefully, a ghoul with a passion for the piano. The atmosphere at the Chequers is extremely warm and friendly and is a great place for a good pint and tasty pub fare.
Popular dishes include locally produced sausages and mash and delicious Sunday roasts. The inn has enthusiastic darts and pool teams and provides a full Post Office service every Tuesday between 1pm and 3pm. For music lovers there are monthly live music evenings with traditional folk music every other Sunday.
