Welcome to the Chequers Inn, Doddington

An historic pub that has played a central role in the life of the village of Doddington for over three centuries. Somewhere to visit for good food, good beer, good music and even a couple of ghosts!

Welcome to the Chequers Inn

This listed 14th Century coaching inn has played an integral part in the life of Doddington village for over three centuries and oozes history and charm with its oak timbers, mullion windows and inglenook fireplace. The Chequers Inn is a quintessential Kentish pub with its hanging hops, flagons and historical prints.

The atmosphere at the Chequers is extremely warm and friendly and it is a great place for an excellent pint and delicious home cooked food.

There is a large family garden, with swings and a slide as well as seating on our front terrace.  Walkers and ramblers are welcome and the public bar is dog friendly.

The Chequers Inn also hosts two ghosts.  A Cavalier from the English Civil War, apparently you can spot him wearing his plumed hat from the overhanging window, and if you listen carefully, you may hear ghostly piano music, reportedly the deceased wife of a past Landlord.
