EAT

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.

1. Lord London
Made by Arthur Alsop & Nick Walker in the heart of the East Sussex Countryside, this uniquely-shaped pasteurised cow’s milk cheese is a semi-soft, clean-tasting cheese with a natural creaminess and hint of citrus.

2. Chilli Cheese
Made by Somerset Cheese Company, a mature hard cows milk cheese with fresh chillies and cracked black pepper.
The balance of flavours allows the kick of the black pepper and the heat of the chillies to come through without overwhelming the mature flavour of the cows cheese.
Vegetarian: Suitable for vegetarians, made using vegetarian rennet.

3. Golden Cross
Made by Kevin and Alison Blunt of the Golden Cross cheese company. Golden Cross cheese is sweet, soft and delicately ‘goaty’ and grassy, with an ice-cream like texture.
The recipe is loosely based on the famous Sainte Maure goats’ milk log from France, but with a bloomy penicillium candidum coat and slightly firmer paste.
The young cheese is rolled in ash, and then matured for a couple of weeks to allow the growth of a natural rind and the development of a more complex flavour.
Vegetarian: Suitable for vegetarians, made using vegetarian rennet.
Unpasteurised raw goats milk
4. Olde Sussex
Made by the Traditional Cheese Dairy, East Sussex, Olde Sussex a hard traditional cheddar but has an open and bouncy texture. This cheese is wonderfully deep, rich and creamy, with a superb tang.

Vegetarian: Suitable for vegetarians, made using vegetarian rennet.

5. Blue Clouds
Made by Chris Heyes at balcombe Dairy based at Lodgelands Farm on the beautiful Balcombe Estate in Sussex.
A mild creamy blue with a slight salty tang. It has a doughy aroma and a good length of flavour. The edible rind adds a distinct earthy note.
The cheese is handmade from a single herd milk in small batches (which is a gentler heating process on the milk). Being located so close to the milking parlour means the milk from the Norwegian Red-Holstein cows travels only ten yards into the cheese making pod where every stage is completed by hand.
The cheese is matured for around 8 weeks then wrapped in a perforated foil to help the blue cheese breathe.
If you like Gorgonzola Dolce, we think you’ll love this.
Vegetarian: Suitable for vegetarians, made using vegetarian rennet.
