About The Chequered Skipper

Situated upon the lovely village of Ashton in Northamptonshire, The Chequered Skipper is an excellent wedding venue that provides a peaceful location for your very special day surrounded by family and friends. A perfect country setting overlooking the village green is what makes this venue extra special.

Facilities and capacity

They can accommodate up to 60 seated people with plenty of space for an evening buffet if you are planning to invite further evening guests. Should your guest list be larger you can use a marquee which can hold up to 150 seated diners.

On the wedding day itself, they will guarantee everything runs smoothly so you will be able to enjoy the day with your guests with no worries about anything.

Cuisine

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.

History

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.

Location

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.
