The Chequers

Located centrally within the sprawling village of Cottenham (6 miles north of Cambridge) and overlooking the war memorial sits the 180 year old Chequers public house.

Fully renovated upon re-opening in Summer 2013, and updated periodically since, The Chequers team would like to welcome you to a family friendly free house pub with bar and restaurant, offering real ales and good value, fantastic food.

The main menu offers pub classics and exciting specials at an affordable price, with roasts (and more) on Sundays served from 12 until 4. We also offer authentic Italian pizzas to eat-in or takeaway, made in a wood-fired oven in the garden and cooked by our Scillian Pizza Chef.

In the bar there are a variety of cask ales including Adnams, and a constantly changing range of guest ales together with a varied wine list to suit all palates and pockets! We can also offer Aspall cider on draft, a range of lagers, and the ever popular draught Guiness, spirits, soft drinks and a selection of teas and coffees, plus free wifi.

Our newly laid beer garden has recently opened, allowing children to play safely whilst their parents relax.

Previous events have included a Beer Festival, Christmas Shopping Event, Meat the Butcher plus Private parties and Charity events. See our Events page for forthcoming dates / plans.
