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

Many years ago, this historic inn - with its noose hanging on the gibbet which doubles-up as the pub sign - used to be a dingy place selling so-so Courage beer. It's had a bit of refurbishment at some stage but retains a traditional (if slightly 'seen better days') look throughout the partially opened-out 'L'-shaped interior. Also has a small patio out back with a view of the castle. On this visit, I found the inevitable Harvey's and Tribute (£4.00) from two of the three handpumps, with the local Tonbridge Cobnut apparently coming on soon on the other.

Steve C left this review about Ye Olde Chequers Inn

Ye Olde Chequers Inn has a tired L shaped interior with plasma screens throughout for showing Sky Sports. The bar supports 2 banks of three hand pumps, but unfortunately only Fuller’s London pride was available. During my early Friday evening visit the weekly karaoke was being set up. I also spotted an advertisement for the Sunday evening quiz from 20:30. I did not visit the advertised smoking patio.

Like the Man of Kent across the road this is run by Pendry’s Pubs Limited. Unlike the Man of Kent across the road I was given a friendly greeting and was made to feel welcome. This is probably not a pub that I will be revisiting anytime soon because it has seen better days and could do with a little money being spent on it.
