About Us

A Traditional Family Friendly Pub

and Restaurant

We take bookings

Who are the Chequers? What are we about? 

We are your traditional family-friendly, pub and restaurant, with a huge beer garden, a heated terrace (great for those lazy summer days) and a variety of play areas for the little ones so you can enjoy a well-deserved minute’s peace or two when you visit us. Situated in the beautiful countryside a stone’s throw from Ampthill, Bedford, local villages,  our garden and site is surrounded by the fields of Houghton Conquest.

We take bookings from tables of two up to huge groups, providing private space for special occasions and meetings. Alternatively, we are happy for you to take the party outdoors. Let us host your very own private BBQ or family garden party… If you would like to book please give us a call and we’ll do all we can to ensure you have a fabulous time, whatever the occasion.

Open for lunch, dinner and weekend breakfast

…with a great drinks selection, varied menu and daily changing specials to suit all tastes. We even have a menu for your little diners.

We are fully equipped for families, small and large. Other than our garden our pub boasts a great gigantic car park, disabled access and baby changing.

Oh…and we offer free Wi-Fi too!

We’ll see you soon!

Our other Little Gems

(current venue highlighted in red)

Little Gems Country Dining

An intimate company, with five pubs

Little Gems Country Dining started in October 2006

and so far we’re a small, intimate company with five pubs. We make it a company principle to use this intimacy to support our pub managers, so that they can run the pubs with their own style and personality. Managers make decisions about menus, staff and local marketing and we do the support functions for them (so they get to do all the fun bits). We pride ourselves on doing the simple things really well and keeping our focus on the staff and customers. In our kitchens, our Head Chefs concentrate on providing home cooked menus with specials menus that change every day. Provenance, sustainability and sourcing British food is important to us, and we keep our dishes simple and not over presented.
