The Chequers Inn at Rowhook is the perfect place for long evenings shared with family and friends and lingering lunches enjoying the autumn sun. Sit on the front terrace with a cool beer or a glass of local wine after a walk in Roman Woods and watch the world go by or gather around the log fire in the bar. Dogs are welcome too and there are dog treats and water available.
A traditional menu with a modern twist
The Chequers Inn dates back to the 15th century and was rescued by chef Tim Neale in 2000. The beautiful building is set in the heart of the Sussex countryside and just a short distance from the Sussex Border Path and some fantastic walks. These days The Chequers has a stellar reputation for outstanding cuisine and service, with a menu that is inspired by traditional English recipes fused with a touch of France.
With ingredients sourced, grown or foraged locally, expect wholesome food, oozing with flavour and beautifully presented. Savour the likes of risotto of wild mushrooms with parmesan and white truffle oil, crispy confit duck on mashed potatoes, Savoy cabbage, French beans, sherry vinegar & lentil du puy jus and pavlova of seasonal red berries and red berry coulis with Chantilly cream.
A carefully curated drinks menu
The Chequers also has a carefully chosen drinks menu with wines sourced from all over the globe, from vineyards in Sussex to France, Italy and the New World and a diverse range of local ales. Ask the staff to recommend the perfect wine to accompany your meal. The Chequers has featured in the AA, Michelin and Master Chefs of Great Britain guides. The Chequers is open Wednesday to Saturday 12 pm – 2:30 pm and 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, and on Sunday 12 pm – 3:30 pm. There is ample free parking.
