The Chequers Inn @ Doddington

A listed 14th Century coaching inn, The Chequers has played an integral part in Doddington life for centuries. Doubling as the village post office every Tuesday lunchtime, it’s a place that’s long been loved by locals - but its traditional charm and character draws visitors from afar.

It’s a pub that oozes history, with age-old oak timbers, mullion windows and an inglenook fireplace among the authentic features, while hanging hops provide quintessentially Kentish decoration.

Food is traditional, home-cooked and locally sourced, while our beer is provided by Shepherd Neame, Britain’s oldest brewer.

If it’s spirits you’re after, then The Chequers is said to be haunted by a Cavalier from the English Civil War, occasionally spotted  in his plumed hat.

Don’t worry though. Those who don't fancy ghost-hunting can always escape to the garden, which is equipped with swings and a slide for younger guests, and plenty of seating for the grown-ups to enjoy a drink  in the sun. Well behaved dogs are welcome in the bar.
