See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The building has been the village inn since 1450 and is set in a street of well-preserved 15th century buildings. It was at one point the rendezvous for local smugglers and is said to possess the ghost of a Napoleonic prisoner of war. The Chequers is a white painted, two story inn with dormer windows and a bowed window on the ground floor and several bars with timber beams and horse brasses. Situated in the middle of several picturesque local walks, The Chequers is also ideally located for visiting nearby places of interest such as Leeds Castle, Historic Canterbury, Sissinghurst Gardens.
