The Chequers Inn


A striking, 400-year-old higgledy-piggledy pub with a classic interior of flagstoned floor, low beams and blazing fire in the inglenook. The Chequers Inn is run by Master Chef of Great Britain Tim Neal, also the holder of an AA Rosette. The bar offers Firebird Heritage XX and Long Man Best Bitter on tap and an impressive wine list to partner dishes of quality from the menu. These can be eaten either in the bar or in the restaurant. You could snack on baked ciabatta, smoked bacon and Somerset brie; and a ploughman's proffers Sussex Charmer cheese with ham, pickles and bread. Harvey's beer-battered fish and chips with mushy peas; or home-made sausages with mashed potatoes and onion gravy are among the tasty crowd-pleasing hot dishes. Tim delights in using only the best local produce, often sourcing seasonal wild mushrooms and even truffles from the generous woodlands around the hamlet of Rowhook.
