Chequers Inn

THE CHEQUERS IS CURRENTLY CLOSED, SOON TO BE UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT

The Chequers is a picturesque 16th century village pub brimming with character. Its public bar and wattle and daub barn restaurant are among its most attractive features.

The pub has a soft, welcoming ambience with soft lighting, pictures of local scenes, beams and log fires burning through the winter.

There is plenty to do at the Chequers. It has a bat and trap pitch and a large garden with a barbecue. Inside, customers enjoy the traditional pub pastimes of shove ha’penny, cribbage and other card games.

Well used by community groups and those who enjoy good quality food, the Chequers also hosts live music events.

The barn is ideal for functions, such as wedding receptions and anniversary and birthday celebrations, as well as business meetings.

As one might expect with such an historic pub, its regulars include a ghost called William – reputedly the spirit of an English Civil War roundhead hanged in the barn.
