Chequers Inn96 High Street
The inn on this site dates from the early 19th century. Thomas Biven is recorded as landlord of the Chequers Inn in the local trade directories of 1829, 1830 and 1835. The name ‘Chequers’ is an ancient one, said to have been used in Roman times. It may also derive from the ‘chequers’ (or small brown berries) from the ‘wild service tree’ which were used to flavour beer, before the introduction of hops. It is now a large spacious pub with friendly customer service and impresive local ales available. "Craft" cans, bottles and keg are now available. As with all JDW pubs there is no social media now and dogs are not admitted.
