Latest Update (14 December 2020): After the announcement from the UK Government, as of 00:01 GMT on Wednesday 16 December our area (Epping Forest) will be under Covid restrictions in the tier three (very high alert) category for England therefore The Chequers must close again until further notice. The Government is due to review these restrictions again on 23 December. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Please be advised that any upcoming reservations with us will be automatically cancelled. Customers who have paid a deposit for their booking will be offered a full refund (subject to £3 transaction/refund fee) or an option to put their deposit on hold for next 6 months and use it towards their next booking. We will be in touch to discuss these options with you by the end of this week. We are very sorry to inform all our Takeaway customers that on this occasion the Takeaway will also be closed. We look forward to re-opening fully again once the area moves into a lower tier. We would like to say big thank to our loyal customers and friends who have supported us during these difficult times.
