Welcome to The Chequers!

The earliest reference to a building on this site is 1591, when George Marples and his family resided here. It was one of Georges children, Jacob, who we believe opened an alehouse here.

The present inn was built in 1735 by Thomas Marples, but it wasn’t until the late 1700’s that the inn became of some prominence. It was during this period that the body snatchers from nearby Eyam would call here for a flagon of ale as they made their way to carry out these macabre deeds in the graveyards of Sheffield!

Nowadays, The Chequers is a bustling, stylish pub with rooms, offering fabulous food and drink.
