The Chequered Skipper

Ashton, OUNDLE, PE8 5LD

The Chequered Skipper has a traditional thatched exterior complemented by a contemporary interior. Located opposite the green in the model village of Ashton, built for the estate workers in the 1880s, the pub plays its part well, with timeless oak floor and beams, and a collection of butterfly display cases diverting attention from a bar stocking locally brewed beers (two beer festivals a year). The menu mixes speciality pizzas and traditional English and European dishes - pork and liver pâté might be followed by braised shoulder of lamb with dauphinoise potatoes.
