About The Chequered Skipper

Chef Patron, Ian Campbell took over the Chequered Skipper in 1997 following the complete refurbishment and rebuilding of the pub after it was gutted by fire. He now runs the operation with his brother David.

This country pub and restaurant, set upon the village green has long been a favourite with ramblers, cyclists and those looking to take a trip to unearth a country secret in a village that might have been lost in time.

The Chequered Skipper has a well earned reputation for quality, serving simple country cuisine accompanied by carefully chosen real ales and quality wines. The menus at The Chequered Skipper reflect the current seasons and are changed every ten weeks. The emphasis is on simple quality food which is applied to the a la carte dishes as well as to the lighter bar menu.

With the conversion of some adjoining barns in 2009, the pub and restaurant was extended to provide a new area for functions known as The Green Room. This allows the accomodation of large parties, social functions, business hire and wedding receptions.

Ashton is located a pleasant ten minute walk from the historic market town of Oundle in Northamptonshire and only 12 miles from Peterborough.

The Chequered Skipper is listed in The AA Good Pub Guide, Alistair Sawdays Special Places to Eat and the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. The country pub and restaurant are open daily serving food for lunch or dinner as well serving drinks all day on Saturday and Sunday.

Review of The Chequered Skipper - Oundle - Northamptonshire written
Rating stars
The Chequered Skipper is a great setting overlooking the village green in Ashton (it's worth the trip up a country lane to get there!) This thatched gastro pub is the American tourists photographic dream. Inside its all light wood decor. Great real ales, extensive wine list. Excellent service with any unusual requests seamlessly accommodated. Food was lovely and fresh, perfectly cooked and well presented by amiable staff. What more could you ask for?
