You’ve spent most of 2021 going for a “nice walk”, drinking warmish wine you forgot to chill and re-watching Line of Duty, BUT not for much longer.

Our pub is staging a comeback and we’ll be opening our doors from Monday 17th May. If you’re already imagining that first sip of freshly poured beer, book your table now online.

We hope you’re as excited as we are, so start weaning yourself off the loungewear and we look forward to seeing you soon.

If you can’t wait that long, why not sip on flagship Greene King beers from our Online Beer Shop.

Welcome to the

Chequers Inn

 

This beautiful 17th century Grade II Listed thatched country pub, is perched on the hedgerow-lined St Albans Road, alongside Chequers Lane, and surrounded by the green and pleasant fields and woodland of Hertfordshire. Behind it, the old River Ver trickles tranquilly through the picturesque countryside and lush wetlands of the Ver Valley. Walkers can follow the Ver Valley Walk all the way to the Colne, near Watford. With its rustic oak beams and cosy wood burners, it's ideal for fireside dining, while the large, leafy beer garden outside is an idyllic place to gather friends and family on lazy summer days. Visitors can get a real flavour of the past, especially when sampling the traditional pub food, delicious seasonal meals and Sunday roasts, served with a glass of fine wine or a perfectly pulled smooth cask ale. Though it’s difficult to date The Chequers Inn precisely, English Heritage notes its “timber frame with painted brick” as 16th century. The earliest recorded reference, however, is on a map from 1760. Back then the pub was part of Fish Street Farm, which belonged to the estate of James Grimston, 2nd Viscount Grimston, MP for St.Albans. The Chequers Inn started life as a coaching station. It stands on the A5183, formerly the ancient Roman road, Watling Street. Between 1780 and 1830, the ‘Golden Age of Stage-Coaching’, Redbourn became known as the ‘Street of Inns’ with at least 25 pubs and inns lining the main road. Located just short of the River Ver, The Chequers Inn was a frequent stop-off for Royal Mail coaches en route to London or York. By 1838, the introduction of a railway line between London, St. Albans and Birmingham signalled the demise of stage-coaching. Nevertheless, the inn continued to thrive and was eventually taken over by Frances Carter Searancke, the famous brewer of Hatfield.
