There’s been a pub on the site of The Chequers since 1776 when the main customers were weary sedan chairmen who carried the aristocracy to nearby lodging houses. And Chequers are still in the business of serving food and drink to visitors and locals all these years later.
Downstairs, you’ll find a menu of great tasting, high quality gastropub food, served in a warm and friendly pub atmosphere. The Chequers stocks a range of local ales and ciders and has an extensive wine list. A frequently changing A La Carte menu of tempting modern British fare is beautifully presented. Fresh fish, seafood and game are just some of the dishes you’ll find, but Chequers stay true to their roots and also serve a 'Classics' menu which consists of pub classics like burgers, fish and chips.
The classic pub décor is translated upstairs complete with an open kitchen, with effortless service and exceptional food. Head Chef Alex Betts has created a modern British menu using the finest local and seasonal produce. Inventive, with one eye on our culinary heritage, the hallmarks of his dishes are beautiful presentation and delicately balanced flavours.
Staff at Chequers are also happy to cater for groups and parties of all sizes and to create a menu to match if needed. The upstairs restaurant can also be used for functions and private hire, including private dining events.
