Our Community

The Chequers Inn is at the heart of the community and we pride ourselves in taking an active role in our local area.

Nearby Walks

The Chequers Inn is situated in the quaint village of Ledsham, right in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside, and makes an ideal meeting point or stop off for walkers and explorers! Why not treat yourself to a hearty lunch and a pint of real Yorkshire ale before setting off to enjoy the picturesque scenery, returning for a delicious and warming dinner by the fire.

This AA walk between Ledsham and Fairburn is one of the most popular local routes.

Local Events

We are involved in the annual Ledsham Fayre which is a great family day out held on the first Saturday in September. We also hold a number of events in the marquee for charities such as the local Rotary Club, Breast Cancer Awareness, The Yorkshire Charity and other local charities.

Meetings & Clubs

We host local meetings for organising committees of local events and many local clubs use us for meetings and dinners such as the Hockey & Cricket Clubs, and the Ferrari & Mercedes clubs.
