Overlooking the village cricket green, our Restaurant and Bar is located in the heart of the beautiful village of Matching Green, Essex. The Perfect place for lunch, dinner, cocktails, celebrations and al fresco dining. The Chequers has a welcoming atmosphere and firm focus on a great food.
Our Dining Room has an open, understated style with a sophisticated yet relaxed ambience whilst The Bar and Lounge offers a more rustic, traditional country feel. Scattered with comfy leather chairs, exposed brickwork and log burner, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.
