Chequer Inn Ash Society Limited

About the Pub

This 14th century Grade II listed timber-framed pub is located in the middle of the country village of Ash.

Recently purchased by the Chequer Inn Ash Society Limited, a community benefit society, it has had significant, but sympathetic, refurbishment and opened in July 2019. Work still continues with a fully-disabled toilet and disabled parking planned for 2020.

Inside there's a large main bar area with a cosy restaurant at the back, which can also serve as a function room. The decor is simple with wooden floors, panelling and furniture adding to the warm, comfortable environment.

Primarily food-led, this gastro-pub still caters for the drinker by offering a good selection of real ales, including one from a local brewery. There's also a selection of local wines, bubbly and gins.

They take pride in the food they serve, specialising in beef dishes and seafood. A good selection of vegan dishes is also available. Food is cooked to order and made from locally-sourced ingredients. On Sunday a variety of roasts is served.

An interesting range of events, many of them community-oriented, is held at the pub including Meet up Monday, Wednesday Family Night and Pensioner's Lunch.

At the back there is a large garden and Bat & Trap pitch.

There is limited parking behind the pub, however there is a free public car park across the road and lots of on-street parking.
