The Chequers at Crowle has re-opened in great style with a new identity and under new management after transforming this village character inn with a £500,000 facelift.

A new sister pub to The Forest at Feckenham, Worcestershire’s national award winning Pub of the Year, The Chequers at Crowle is already winning favour and flavour with villagers and customers from further afield; all tempted by its hallmark Anglo French cuisine.

The launch of The Chequers at Crowle marks the fourth gastro-pub for Warwickshire headquartered CD Pub Co, and offers a relaxing environment with the emphasis on great food using the finest ingredients for ‘home’ prepared menus at value for money.

Innovative new menu introductions include a showcase cheese board trolley with a wide selection of speciality artisan cheeses, sourced locally, and a Swiss style cheese fondue as a sharing starter for two.

As a pub group that’s well renowned for its succulent Aubrey Allen range of dry-aged steaks, The Chequers also offers variety from both the sea and farm to the plate, whetting the appetite of diners looking for a celebratory feast or light bite.  From a drinks perspective there is also a wide range of local beers and cask ales available to complement a full range of spirits and wines from around the world, offered by the bottle or glass.

Commenting on its launch, Charles Harris operations director of CD Pub Co said the whole team were thrilled with the response of villagers and new customers to the pub’s new look, ambience, cuisine and bar service.

As he explained: “We’ve had the most amazing feedback from customers since the launch, which is particularly welcome and a real boost after such an intensive 16 weeks’ full scale works programme.  This included a new roof and an increased electrics supply to the pub, as well as the stylish refurbishment of the pub, both inside and out with new flooring, new dining areas offering both comfort and style in spacious surroundings.  Extensive parking also provides a welcoming first impression and is an added bonus with over 100 spaces.

“The chance to introduce our successful formula to the village of Crowle for great food, at great value in a great atmosphere is very exciting, and we’ve already started to become an integral part of village life”, he added.

More than 20 new jobs have already been created by the full scale refurbishment of The Chequers, but that number is set to increase during the warmer summer months, as the focus extends into al fresco dining on the impressive patio and gardens that surround the pub.

CD Pub Co also runs The Stag at Offchurch and The Moorings at Myton near Leamington Spa – both of which have won numerous industry awards for their outstanding menu quality.
