Description: Set in the middle of some of the Isle of Wight's most beautiful countryside, the historic Chequers Inn was once a Customs and Excise house.

Dedicated to serving good, honest food and drink within a family friendly environment, it is a must for anyone looking for delicious food and drink served in relaxed and pleasant surroundings.

“family fantastic”
Reviewed 10 June 2009

The most wonderful family friendly pub ever! Absolutely brilliant for kids of all ages. So much to play on outside and a great indoor games room if the weathers bad.
Carvery offer small or large plate reasonable priced. Food wonderful! We went by bus no 2 from Sandown to Rookley and walked upto it. Well worth the 20minute walk with a pushchair. This way we could relax have a nice bt of wine whilst the kids played after we had eaten in the conservatory.No need to drive.
Views to die for, idyllic country setting

“Excellent carvery”
Reviewed 30 April 2009

This Sunday carvery was excellent, was one of the best l have had. The range of meat and vegetables on offer were extensive and very well coooked. It was so good we also went on the Wednesday evening. They do two prices for the carvery - which is good if you are not a big eater. Also do a menu board if you don't want the carvery. Thoroughly recommended!!

“Excellent Pub for young families”
Reviewed 17 April 2009

This is a great carvery pub located in Rookery in the Isle of Wight near Niton on the south coast and is a great pub carvery at a very reasonable price and a good selection of desserts.
When the weather is good there is an excellent and very extensive outside children's play area with picnic benches so that you can enjoy the sun and watch the children. My own 2 girls were 1 and 3, and my initial concern with taking them out to eat was that they would get bored very easily however this was not a concern as they had plenty to do at the Chequers Inn. They have baby changing faciliities and the staff are more than willing to provide hot water etc for warming milk & baby food.
It is in a wonderful location in the middle of the countryside and has ample parking available. Definitely worth a visit if you are on the island!
