The Chequers Matching Green


The Chequers Matching Green presents itself as a chic destination catering to lunch, dinner, cocktails, special occasions, and outdoor dining experiences. Nestled amidst the picturesque border of Hertfordshire and Essex, conveniently accessible from Harlow, Epping, Bishop’s Stortford, and the M11, it stands as a rural gem.

In the Dining Room, an atmosphere of subtle elegance prevails, fostering a sophisticated yet laid-back vibe. Meanwhile, the Bar exudes a rustic, traditional charm. The Lounge, in particular, lends itself admirably to group gatherings, comfortably accommodating up to 24 guests for intimate meals, making it perfect for family birthdays or anniversaries.

Their menu boasts an enticing array of starters, sharing platters, and delectable mains encompassing pasta, salads, pub classics, grilled fish, and steaks. Additionally, they offer Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, and Vegan options, ensuring inclusivity. Every dish is meticulously prepared to order, showcasing the finest seasonal ingredients. Furthermore, Head Chef Alex and his team curate a selection of seasonal specials weekly (excluding Sundays and Bank Holidays), enhancing the dining experience.

During the summer months, alfresco dining takes centre stage, with the expansive terrace offering splendid garden views—a quintessential setting for sun-soaked lunches or dinners.

At The Chequers, the calendar is always abuzz with activity. From the Annual Classic and Sports Car Show to gourmet dinners, wine tastings, Easter egg hunts, and Mother's Day celebrations, there's an event for every occasion throughout the year.
