The Chequers is tucked away up a quiet country lane in the beautiful village of Woolsthorpe by Belvoir. Nestled in the Vale of Belvoir, we are located 10 minutes from Grantham, half an hour from Nottingham and 20 minutes from Melton Mowbray.  With Belvoir Castle perched on the hill above us, we are surrounded by stunning views of the beautiful Leicestershire/Lincolnshire countryside.

At The Chequers we offer intimate, tailor made wedding celebrations in the rural yet contemporary environment of a 17th century country inn. Here wedding packages are a thing of the past. Your day is exactly how you want it to be - from the reception drink... to the food... to the wines …your day, your choice. The Chequers offers you a wedding to remember - great food, a fabulous venue and the most attentive service....

We can accommodate wedding parties of 2 to 250. Our newly extended and refurbished contemporary restaurant caters for up to 120 guests sitting down. This is a great room with lots of natural light from the floor to ceiling bi-fold doors that span the space. A solid oak floor is complemented by pale grey walls, accents of designer wallpaper and vintage lighting. Beyond is our pretty summer garden - perfect for waitress served reception drinks and canapés. In the evening, the room becomes your venue for a band or disco and your evening reception. Other smaller rooms are available for a more intimate affair.

We are also licensed for civil ceremonies in both our main restaurant and our Drawing Room.


“Mandy, Jo & all the staff at the Chequers.

A big ‘thank you’ from Claire and me for putting on a first class wedding for us.  We loved every minute and everything that you did for us was perfect. We love you folks! See you when we are back from Cyprus!”
