As most of you know, we’re the same close knit team that run The Green Man Thriplow & The Chequers Fowlmere. So during these unprecedented times, we have naturally combined our efforts to offer Thriplow, Fowlmere & surrounding villages with 'The Back Door Bistro', your very own 20's speakeasy. We will be serving our amazing sourdough flatbreads (pizza), curry, wine & real ale for takeaway, 6-8pm Wednesday-Sunday.

The menu will change daily and be posted on The Chequers website

The front doors of both The Green Man & The Chequers remain currently closed to customers, however The Chequers has a fantastic back garden layout that lends itself to providing a virus safe takeaway experience, so we will be offering all food & drink services from The Chequers in Fowlmere.

Our first customer was our local MP Anthony Browne. He came along to check out The Back Door Bistro and enjoyed some of our fantastic pizzas. Anthony is trying really hard to support local pubs & restaurants during this difficult period…. We really hope that you all will too.

On arrival at The Chequers, park in the carpark and then take the path through the arch in to the back garden. It will lead you to our outside (undercover) Back Door Bistro waiting area. Your order will be prepared by our professional chefs, and passed out through the hatch to you.

You can turn up and order in person, or to avoid delay you can call/email us in advance on 01763 209333 /  Jade & Rebecca will be manning the phone from 5pm each day. If you do get an engaged line, feel free to email and we will call you back as soon as we can.

Bottles of red and white wine are £10, and we have a beer of the day which we will be selling for £5 a litre and serving in new (sterile) takeaway containers.

On a practical note, our card machine range doesn't stretch as far as the kitchen, so you can either pay with cash on pick up, or you can pay by card over the phone when you place your order.

We are giving the take away model our best shot, to try and ensure The Green Man & The Chequers survive this difficult period. Please bear with us while we iron out the creases… this isn’t our usual operating model, but we are determined to learn quickly and provide great service, food & drink … as normal!

Stay safe everyone, and hope to see you all back in the pub soon!

Best wishes
Chris, Rebecca, Jade & The Green Man / Chequers team

The menu at The Chequers is fresh and seasonal. 

Lots of tasty bar snacks, sourdough flatbreads, and  high welfare meat. All of our dishes are cooked to order and the menu changes everyday to fit in what we can source from our suppliers. 

Our aim is to deliver truly great British pub food. Good, honest ingredients, executed well, to create a menu worth talking about, and returning for.



We constantly change our real ales. We also have Sommersby cider, Carlsberg, San Miguel & Guinness on draft. 

If pints aren't your thing... we have a small but well thought out wine list, and an extensive gin menu so there's something for everyone.




To reserve your table, you can call, email or drop in and speak to us face to face.
