14th century coaching inn

A listed 14th Century coaching inn, The Chequers has played an integral part in Doddington life for centuries. It's a place that’s long been loved by locals - but its traditional charm and character draws visitors from afar.

It’s a pub that oozes history, with age-old oak timbers, mullion windows and an inglenook fireplace among the authentic features, while hanging hops provide quintessentially Kentish decoration.

Traditional pub food

Food is traditional, home-cooked and locally sourced, while our beer is provided by Shepherd Neame, Britain’s oldest brewer.

If it’s spirits you’re after, then The Chequers is said to be haunted by a Cavalier from the English Civil War, occasionally spotted  in his plumed hat.

Don’t worry though. Those who don't fancy ghost-hunting can always escape to the garden, which is equipped with plenty of seating for you to enjoy a drink  in the sun. Well behaved dogs are welcome in the bar.


There's plenty going on at the Chequers Inn throughout the week including live music, quizzes and race nights. Follow us on Facebook to keep up to date.
