The Chequers offers innovative cuisine and we are fortunate to have some fantastic food and drink suppliers right on our doorstep which we actively promote and use. We have been awarded an AA Rosette for the standard of our food every year since 2004. Building on this success we have held 2 AA Rosettes since August 2015, testament to the hard work and dedication of all our team.
Our 2 AA Rosette Menu changes throughout the year to reflect the seasons and allows our chefs to showcase their talents. Of course, guests are very welcome to mix and match between menus.
In addition, our Pub Classics Menu consists of favourites such as East Coast Haddock with Bakewell Bitter batter and Proper Steak and local ale pie.
We also have an ever changing selection of dishes on our Blackboard Menu, which includes fresh fish and meat dishes, a further vegetarian option and local game when in season.
During the day we also offer a comprehensive sandwich and salad menu, served inside and in the woodland garden.
We offer a great value traditional Sunday Lunch menu on Sundays. Freshly roasted Loin of Pork or Sirloin of Beef are served with homemade Yorkshire pudding, duck fat roasties and seasonal vegetables. Perfect for either a winters day in front of our log fire after a long walk in the Peaks or just a good excuse for meeting up with friends and family.
Our real ales are all brewed from small independent breweries from within 15 miles of The Chequers. Beers from Peak Ales on the Chatsworth Estate, Bradfield Brewery in Sheffield and Kelham Island Brewery, Sheffield are a mainstay on our bar. Unusually, we also have a Sheffield Lager on draft!
In addition to our local beers, we also also offer a comprehensive wine selection, both by the glass and bottle, along with a great choice of interesting gins and whiskies.
