Gorgeous giveaway: Dine, wine, and stay at The Chequers

March 8, 2015


Another Gorgeous Yorkshire giveaway and this time it is aimed at brightening up midweek with a little ooh la la.

We have a table for two at a Southern French wine dinner at The Chequers Inn, Bilton-in-Ainsty,  on Wednesday, March 25.  There’s no need to worry about driving home as an overnight stay is also included. www.thechequersbilton.co.uk


The menu includes canapes, duck leg galantine, cassoulet and tarte aux pommes, plus French cheeses and homemade oatcakes, with a different wine to accompany each dish. The food, cooked by head chef Adrian Rowe,  is excellent, and we love the surroundings.

The Chequers, set in a pretty village on the outskirts of York, is a proper pub with a cosy log burner, a beer garden and relaxed, friendly service. There are three rooms, including this deluxe double.

Room 1

The owners, Ainsty Inns, own three great pub/restaurants in Yorkshire, The Chequers, The Swan & Talbot in Wetherby and The Beehive in Thorner.

Their ethos is to source as much produce as possible from the Ainsty area of York, with a focus on provenance.

To enter our giveaway, simply email: gorgeousyorkshire@gmail.com with your name, address and contact email and put Chequers Giveaway in the email subject box (we won’t pass your details on to any third party). Deadline for entries is Saturday, March 14.
