Here at the Chequers we understand the value of good quality, locally sourced ingredients. That’s why we use fresh, seasonal produce working with nature’s ingredients through each season.

Our meat and fish are sourced from Battle, Rye Bay and Hastings. Our cheeses are the best that Sussex, Kent and Brighton have to offer and our fruit and veg is from local, family run businesses.
Our expert chefs make everything in house from the bread to the tomato sauce.
Even the ice creams!

This then extends out to the bar as we make our own syrups and seasonal infused gins to accompany your meal.
Because we use seasonal produce, our menu changes monthly to keep current and exciting.
