The Chequers Inn

Village pubs don’t come much more venerable or pleasing than the 17th century Chequers Inn at Woolsthorpe, a regular County Dining Pub of the Year in the Good Pub Guide. You could happily settle in here for an entire afternoon and soak up the atmosphere while enjoying the excellent food.

The impressive bar area with its large antique tables, wooden beams, enormous and ancient fireplace, and exposed stonework is comfortable, atmospheric and inviting. The large array of beers, lagers and cocktails on offer make it an even more tempting place in which to hunker down.

In the adjoining room is the Bakehouse dining room, which used to be the village bakery, while outside is a large pub garden that cosies up to the village cricket pitch. Wander out the front door and turn right onto Woolsthorpe’s Main Street and you’ll soon be able to enjoy views of nearby Belvoir Castle.

The food matches the excellent setting and when our reviewer visited he was impressed. He wrote: “The steak was sublime – the Chequers Inn is perfect for a long, relaxed Sunday lunch.”

There is a lengthy a la carte menu, which is available for both lunch and dinner. Or you can choose from the Pub Classics selection, which offers the likes of local sausages and mash or homemade pie.

The Chequers Inn has also received an Exceptional Food Award from Observer Food Monthly.

  3. James caunt says:
    Always a treatAlthough a 25 minute drive away from us we always bypass a number of other Vale pub/restaurants to get to the Chequers. Always a warm welcome, always good food and in our opinion good value, especially the '7th heaven' and good food offers. Others come and go but the Chequers always delivers. Oh and the bar area is just so lovely, especially in winter. Can't wait for our annual December get together. Fab.
