Kentish country pub

With its old oak beams, cosy log burner and separate dining area, The Chequers Inn in Heaverham is the picture-perfect Kentish country pub.

Dating back to the 16th 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 Chequers, Hoo, Shepherd Neame

Eat & 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.

Functions and events

There’s also a garden to explore in summer, a real suntrap for you to relax the afternoon away supping on cracking drinks in the warmer months.  You may even get chance to enjoy one of our hog roasts, BBQ's or giant paella whilst listening to some live music by some of London's finest.  There's a playground for the younger guest in your party to enjoy and a small flock of recue hens, enjoying life and laying delicious eggs you can purchase at the bar.

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.
