A warm welcome is sure to delight all when visiting The Chequers, a friendly pub situated in the south Leicestershire village of Swinford. Brian together with his late wife Chris first moved to the Chequers 27 years ago and have been providing excellent service, in a beautiful building with fine drink, food and regular entertainment. The Chequers has a selection of lagers on tap, as well as three real ales, including Mild Ale & a constantly changing guest ale.

During the summer, the public house assembles a beautifully decorated and furnished marquee that is suitable to hire for functions, such as wedding receptions, christenings, birthday parties & other events for up to one hundred guests. The marquee is also used by The Chequers for music nights and their annual summer beer festival. The lounge area can also be reserved for meetings & parties for up to twenty people, buffets can be provided if required.
