The Chequers Inn

This traditional pub is one of the oldest in Yorkshire, dating back to the early 1600s, and you’ll always get a warm welcome from landlord Chris Wraith, who has run The Chequers Inn with his family for almost 30 years.

Downstairs comprises a labyrinth of characterful rooms around a central bar area complete with low ceilings, beams, cosy alcoves, and interesting antiques and pictures. Upstairs is the restaurant. You can choose to eat in either. The food is traditional British with modern European and Mediterranean twists, and bar snacks are also available.

One lunchtime option is to share slate platters. The Mediterranean slate comes full of hams, goat’s cheese, sun-blushed tomatoes, olives, balsamic vinegar, oil and crusty homemade bread. The slate of smoked and marinated fishes comes equally well presented.

Nostalgic desserts such as jam sponge and custard, and strawberry Pavlova are served to satisfy the sweetest tooth.

The Chequers Inn is also an excellent spot for classic Yorkshire bitters, serving ales such as Leeds Best from Leeds Brewery, plus beers from Brown Cow Brewery and Theakston’s. These are complemented by an extensive wine list.

For the designated driver, there’s a large secure car park adjoining the building. There’s also a pleasant patio area.

    Loved this lovely little pub for a number of years. Food always good, some nice touches to the dishes. I love sitting outside in the summer – the garden is a great lunch venue.
