“Excellent luncheon after a 4 mile walk”
Review of Chequered Skipper

Chequered Skipper
Ranked #9 of 29 Nightlife in Peterborough
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We parked at the Chequered Skipper prior to opening and went on the circular walk that you can print off from the pubs website. The weather was with us and the walk took us along the river and up through Oundle before returning for lunch about 2 hours later. We had the dog with us and there would have been no problem in having her in with us in the bar had we wanted to. However as the weather was good we ate outside. Terrific Pepperoni Pizza, Burger and Ham, Egg and Chips. There were only two ales on, but these were palatable. The only down is that its more of a restaurant than a country pub and lacked a little atmosphere...but I would definately return

Visited with a group of friends. The food was very good, the shared staters were especially nice. The mains were excellent. A relaxed place with good service and excellent food in a great location, what more can you want.

My girlfriend and I visited the Chequered Skipper for a meal last weekend - it was great. We really enjoyed the little tapas style starters and shared the sausages, squid, olives and one more I can't remember (not the fault of the food). The pizza from the stonebaked oven is really good and probably the best pizza you can get in the area.

The restaurant is located in such a nice little village too.

Great service too - the American lady in particular made us feel really welcome. All in all a good great meal.

Had a wonderful, full flavoured meal.
Great service. Went there today n I can fully recommend the steak n ale pie and the haddock n chips which my partner had. Busy little place but they let us have a table even though we hadnt booked.
