The Chequers Inn


Information For The Chequers Inn

Quintessential English country pub with a fabulous setting below Belvoir Castle, great food and best of all, we won't break the bank! We are the East Midlands best kept wedding secret..

The Chequers is tucked away up a quiet country lane in the beautiful village of Woolsthorpe by Belvoir. Nestled in the Vale of Belvoir, we are located 10 minutes from Grantham, half an hour from Nottingham and 20 minutes from Melton Mowbray.  With Belvoir Castle perched on the hill above us, we are surrounded by stunning views of the beautiful Leicestershire/Lincolnshire countryside.

At The Chequers we offer intimate, tailor made wedding celebrations in the rural yet contemporary environment of a 17th century country inn. Here wedding packages are a thing of the past. Your day is exactly how you want it to be - from the reception drink... to the food... to the wines …your day, your choice. The Chequers offers you a wedding to remember - great food, a fabulous venue and the most attentive service....

We love weddings!  From our first meeting and show round with the prospective Bride & Groom, to the moment we say goodnight at the end of the best day of your lives….What makes it even more special for us is that no two weddings are ever the same at the Chequers.  We do not offer traditional packages, we never force you into ordering things you don’t really want and we try to say ‘yes’ to the most quirky and off the wall ideas whenever we can!  There are no room hire charges for Wedding Receptions, just the cost of the food and drink that you decide on for your big day.*

Most receptions are accommodated in our stunning Restaurant – the perfect wedding space, with doors into our lovely garden, which is offered for exclusive use.

The Chequers is licensed for civil ceremonies and offers 2 options:

The Drawing Room – suitable for up to 24 guests, the Drawing Room is an intimate room with an original parquet floor and offers the option of the adjoining Snug for drinks and canapés after your ceremony.  It is then transformed into the venue for your wedding breakfast with the option of long or round tables depending on your number of guests.

The Restaurant – suitable for up to 120 guests, the Restaurant is a large, bright and airy room with a solid oak floor, pale grey decoration and floor to ceiling bi-fold doors into the garden. Reception drinks and canapés can either by taken in the garden (weather permitting) or the main Bar with additional rooms made available for larger parties.

Top Wedding Tips

This is your day! Don't be over influenced by others in the planning and organisation.

Remember to take a few moments to yourselves to take it all in - we find just before you are being introduced into the reception to your guests is a good time to do this.
