About
The Chequers is a traditional village pub with good real ale, traditional menu and specials board, very large garden with children's play equipment and a roaring log fire in the winter. The Chequers has won many pub and community awards over the years under the current landlords that have been there for 24 years. The beamed interior provides for a cosy, village atmosphere and should you feel energetic the locals run a cycling, running and swimming club from The Chequers. Well behaved children, dogs and cyclists are always welcome! There are often some sort of events being organised from charity events to themed dinner evenings, real ale and cheese festivals or triathlons and cycle events.

The Chequers is one of my favourite pubs, not least because it is a proper pub, with proper beer and good fresh food, not a faceless chain outlet with tasteless fizzy beer and a large plastic menu. We booked a table for Burns' Night, I'm...More
