More Great News!

We Are Now Open and Taking Bookings!


We are now open for drinks and from Saturday 11th July open for food.
The opening hours for food from 11th July onwards will be 12.00 to 2.30 for lunch and 6.30 to 8.30 in the evening. Drink service will also be extended until 9.45 ( 7.00 on Sundays & Mondays). On Sundays and Mondays we will only serve food at lunchtimes.
Our menu is available to view on the website, but will be subject to review over the next few weeks.
We will also only be taking card payments for the foreseeable future.
Some items in this announcement might seem very regulated, but I think we have no other option in the current climate so that as many people as possible can visit the Chequers and have an enjoyable, safe and relaxing time.
We are asking all guests to book in advance for drinks and food where possible and supply a contact number as we will have to keep records of all visits to the pub in the event that we need to ‘track and trace’. We will also be asking a few essential questions on your arrival at the pub.
For the next few days can I ask all our guests to submit booking requests by e mail and then by phone from 11th onwards. We will need to ask you your contact number and/or e mail address and whether you or any of your party have had Covid-19 or have been in touch with anyone who has had Covid-19. We will also need to know if you’re wanting to bring a dog with you so that we can properly allocate tables in our specific dog friendly areas. We also ask that your dogs are kept under tight control and kept on leads if necessary.

Unfortunately going forwards we will no longer be able to accommodate pushchairs, buggies and prams.
The garden will only be available to book on the day to allow for the weather conditions, and if weather conditions change we cannot guarantee that you will be able to move inside.
There will be a queuing system outside of the pub and you will be shown to your seating area by a member of staff after you’ve been called through. There will be hand sanitising stations at numerous points throughout the pub, including outside the front door.
Our tables will be significantly spread apart, there will be social distancing measures throughout the pub and there will be control of people passing each other in our main corridor. We ask that all our guests abide by all notices around the pub.
We will not be using PPE in the pub, but will be controlling our business by the use of notices, appropriate behaviours, social distancing and hand sanitising stations.
We ask all our guests to abide by our systems and take this information into account when deciding if you want to book with us.
We ask all our guests to arrive at the correct time of their booking to avoid excessive queues.
Your safety & our team’s safety is an absolute priority, but we also want to welcome all our guests back and ensure you of a fantastic time at the Chequers.


Above all we are really looking forward to seeing you all back and catching up with you!
