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

Traditional village pub, in a picturesque setting at the bottom of a steep valley beside a stream. 'L'-shaped bar, with a separate dining area behind a semi-open partition wall. Beer garden - part patio / part grassed - to the rear. Also hosts two popular events: the plastic duck race held on the Spring Bank Holiday Monday and the Boxing Day morris dancing featuring several sides (including the incomparable Loose Women), and the bar staff certainly work their socks off on the event days. Beer quality is always good, with up to five available on handpump: the regular Harveys plus mainstream offerings such as Pride, Doom Bar, Master Brew or Spitfire and often something local - Reliant Robin on this visit. Also has one or two beers on gravity from an outside table on event days.
