Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Chequers Inn

The signage proclaims it to be a "14th-century inn", and the traditional white weatherborded exterior certainly looks the part in Smarden's very attractive main street. The main rooms on the Church side of the bar are set aside for dining, and the handpumps there are disused. However, the smaller Charter Bar on the other side is the place for a pint with three real ales available: Doom Bar, Thwaites Original and Hancock's HB (£3.00). Two bench tables out front, but to the rear there is a decent beer garden beyond the car park. There is also a water feature deside a modern (but tastefully executed) extension to the main building.

Nice garden and pond. Food good, but a tad pricey.
The beer selection isn't what it once was, and the service is slow, to say the least.
