Stop press:
We are delighted to announce the safe arrival of our Head Chef's son, Warren on Saturday 18th June . This means Chef will be taking some time off to spend with his family. For the next week we will be offering a condensed menu, so please call us on 01728 688039 to check our menu choices.  Our Head Chef will return on Sunday 3rd July.
We are now open Mondays, 5.00pm-8.00pm for drinks only.

A relaxed country pub just a short journey away from the coast of Aldeburgh, near Snape Maltings.

We are currently open from Wednesday lunchtime through to Sunday evening. We are family/dog friendly (with a large green opposite the pub offering children's facilities). We offer a fantastic selection of drinks all year round including both local & popular lagers (Becks, Amstell and Peroni) & ales (including Adnams and Wordfordes) wines, spirits, fruit ciders & fizz (by the glass or bottle). 

Outside seating is available both at the front of the pub and also in our rear patio (up to twenty seated capacity).

We have regular entertainment ranging from rock to folk music, quiz nights and open mic nights so please 'Chequers' out on our 'Special Events page' for upcoming events.

"Lovely place with very friendly owners who deliver great service. Excellent choice of wines, very tasty food and they're dog friendly! So nice to be able to go out to eat and be able to take the dog with us! Not too far from Aldeburgh so will definitely visit again!"
