Welcome to the Chequers Inn, Heaverham

Fine ales, fresh food and centuries of stories…

Welcome to the Chequers Inn

With its old oak beams, cosy log burner and hops hanging above the bar, The Chequers Inn in Heaverham is the picture-perfect Kentish country pub.

Dating back to the16th century, the family-friendly pub wears its history with sublime style, providing an authentic, atmospheric setting in which to enjoy fine food and drink.

The fare here is traditional, tasty and unpretentious, with freshly made dishes crafted from wholesome local produce. The beer, too, has a local flavour, thanks to ales and lagers supplied by Faversham’s Shepherd Neame brewery. There’s plenty to do at The Chequers, so how you spend your time here is entirely in your hands. You can enjoy a memorable meal in the restaurant, or savour a quiet pint in the quaint and cosy bar - with traditional pub games like shove ha’penny, cribbage and cards for company.

There’s also a garden to explore in summer, complete with a traditional bat and trap pitch, and when you want to make your own entertainment, you can hire the pub’s beautiful wattle-and-daub Tudor barn - one of the finest venues in the Sevenoaks area for private parties.

Don’t be surprised to find an extra guest at your get-together though. As one might expect with such an historic pub, regulars here include a ghost called William – reputedly the spirit of an English Civil War roundhead hanged in the barn…

All the team - William included - look forward to seeing you soon.
