Been meaning to go to the Chequers for ages and seeing it had been transformed into a family run Italian, went for a late Saturday lunch. Very welcoming (our daughter met every member of the family on the way in!) and love the layout, with...More

I understand about the problem with the gas, but unless the food you could serve, was first class, it shouldn't have been served at all and closing the kitchen would have been better for future business. A pale piece of tuna with a pile of...More

We found ourselves in Lamberhurst on our way to St.Leonard's and popped into the 15th Century Chequers Inn by chance for a quick drink and light bite. We were so impressed by the ambience, the service and the excellent Italian food. I had pea soup...More

Your A-typical Italian Gastropub! A beautiful riverside Gastropub and B&B in the pretty village of Lamberhurst, The Chequers is an Italian oasis in the midst of the Garden of England. This gorgeous Kentish gem has five guest bedrooms where you can relax and unwind, but whether you’re staying the night or not, there’s lots to love about The Chequers: two spacious bars (one of which is dog friendly) are well stocked with exceptional local ales, lagers and the finest Italian wines; a lovely coffee shop provides the best Italian coffee; a beautiful restaurant serves classic favourites and lesser known delicacies from different Italian regions for lunch and dinner; and then, our biggest attraction, our Italian Deli! Dozens of authentic, fresh, Italian cheeses, meats, olives, vegetables and breads to taste in one of our famous platters or to take home with you. And all of this accompanied by some of the best live music Kent (and London!) has to offer. Benvenuti!
