The Chequers Matching Green
Located in the heart of the delightful village of Matching Green on the Hertfordshire and Essex border, The Chequers boasts gorgeous views of the vast village green – one of the largest in Essex. The dining room is open and understated, with a sophisticated yet relaxed ambience, while the bar and lounge area with its comfy leather chairs offers a more rustic and traditional country feel.
This stylish restaurant and country pub welcomes all, and its ﬁrm focus on great food affords it obvious popularity with locals. Modern British cuisine with an Italian twist is on offer, and only the freshest ingredients are used, all of which are lovingly prepared in-house. Vegetables are sourced from local allotments, and fresh herbs are grown in the restaurant’s garden. The varied offering comprises seasonal specials, an excellent-value midweek lunch menu, and a stunning Sunday roast. The wine and the cocktail lists complement the menu perfectly and feature something for everyone. Whether it’s a bottle of Italian Gavi served with whole sea bream or the ever-so-popular Passiontini as an aperitif, you’re sure to ﬁnd a tipple to accompany your meal.
With al fresco dining available during the sunnier months, and plenty of events occurring throughout the year, including cabaret shows and a classic and sports car show, a trip to The Chequers is a must.
