With its local brick and red pantiled roof, the Chequers is the epitome of a Lincolnshire country pub (photo 1). The Bateman’s Brewery sign helps, and the vapour trail of a jet fighter in photo 1 leaves you in no doubt where you are. The pub dates from the early 1700s and is Grade II listed. It’s in farming country, as can be seen by the bales of hay in front of the pub (photo 2).
The Chequers is five miles from the seaside resort of Skegness and only a mile from Bateman’s brewery in Wainfleet. At least two Bateman beers are sold and proper pub grub is served all day.
The caravan park behind the pub is mostly for pre-owned static caravans but there are a few places for for touring caravans and motorhomes.
