Their menus are based on the current seasons and are modified every ten weeks. Just quality ingredients are used as to offer fresh and simple country cuisine, all combined with meticulously chosen real ales and quality wines.
Head chef Ian Campbell took over the Chequered Skipper in 1997 with his brother Colin after full restoration after it was destroyed by fire. Since then, this country pub has long been a favourite place for ramblers, cyclists and travellers.
Ashton is situated just a charming ten minute walk away from the historic market town of Oundle, and only 12 miles away from Peterborough. Once a year in early October, the village is taken over by 5,000 people attending the World Conker Championships.
