The charming Chequers, located in the attractive village of Goldhanger, boasts a tranquil setting that’s perfect for enjoying laid-back drinks and classic cuisine. Thanks to its peaceful position and rustic charm, this 14th-century inn is a popular stop-off among walkers and bird watchers who come to the area to enjoy the beauty of the Blackwater Estuary. The traditional food and welcoming bar – serving several real ales – take centre stage, and the extensive menu makes the most of quality local ingredients. You might choose to begin your meal with crispy garlic- and rosemary-coated Brie or some warming homemade soup with fresh bread, followed by jumbo beer-battered cod accompanied by garden peas and chips, or the chef’s hearty steak and stout pie. Pair with a refreshing pint of real ale for a reviving visit. Whether you’re drinking or dining, a warm welcome awaits you, your family and four-legged friends at this fabulously British pub.
