Old Home


Located centrally within the sprawling village of Cottenham (6 miles north of Cambridge) and overlooking the war memorial sits the 180 year old Chequers public house.

Recently renovated, The Chequers team would like to welcome you to a family friendly free house pub with bar and restaurant, offering real ales and good value, fantastic food.

The main menu offers traditional favourites at an affordable price, with roasts on Sundays served from 12 until 4. We also offer authentic Italian pizzas to eat-in or takeaway, made in a wood-fired oven in the garden and cooked by our Scillian Pizza Chef.

In the bar there are a variety of cask ales including Adnams, and a constantly changing range of guest ales together with a varied wine list to suit all palates and pockets! We can also offer Aspall cider on draft, a range of lagers, including the very moreish Kostritzer Black Lager, spirits, soft drinks and a selection of teas and coffees, plus free wifi.

We have a large car park and courtyard seating area (plans are afoot to develop a full beer garden in early 2015).

Previous events have included a Beer Festival, Christmas Shopping Event, Meat the Butcher plus Private parties and Charity events. See our Events page for forthcoming dates / plans.
