A Traditional Family Friendly Pub
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, you 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.
