The Chequered Skipper description

Commercial Venue

Medium (1-150)

Weddings / Corporate Events

Chef Patron, Ian Campbell took over the Chequered Skipper in 1997 following the complete refurbishment and rebuilding of the pub after it was gutted by fire. He now runs the operation with his brother David.

Every building in the small country village of Ashton is built of stone and thatch. This country pub and restaurant, set upon the village green has long been a favourite with ramblers, cyclists and those looking to take a trip to unearth a country secret in a village that might have been lost in time.

Set upon the village green in the picture postcard thatched village of Ashton in Northamptonshire, The Chequered Skipper is a wedding venue that offers a tranquil setting for your very special day. Whether you are planning a large all day event or intimate wedding breakfast with evening guests, we promise to make your wedding reception a unique celebration.

The main function area can seat up to 60 for a wedding breakfast with plenty of space for an evening buffet if you are planning to invite further evening guests to a maximum of 120. Should you be planning for a larger guest list you may adjoin a marquee to the wedding venue which can then accommodate up to 150 seated diners.
