Brakspear, the brewer and pub operator, has added to its fledgling managed estate by bringing the Chequers in Marlow across from its tenanted and leased operation.

Since 2010 the Chequers has been run by multiple-site lessees Tailor Made Dining. TMD have said they are leaving the pub to reshape their business, which includes two other Brakspear sites.

The current staff and food and drink offer, including the butcher’s table where diners choose their steak, will be retained.

The move take Brakspear's managed division to four – with the Bull on Bell Street in Henley; the Porch House in Stow-on-the-Wold and the Running Horses in Mickleham, Surrey.  All four sites are overseen by operations manager Mat Aket.

TMD director Ted Docherty said, “We have enjoyed taking the Chequers from a closed site to the thriving business it is today. It will be a good fit within Brakspear’s managed division, and the move suits TMD’s plans going forward.

“We will continue to work alongside Brakspear at our two other pubs, the Crown at Playhatch and the White Hart at Nettlebed.”

Brakspear chief executive Tom Davies said: “Tailor Made Dining have done a great job with the Chequers and turned it into one of our top pubs. We’re delighted to be bringing it into our managed estate.

“The pub has a large and loyal customer base in and around Marlow and we intend to keep it that way. Over time, we may look to incorporate dishes that have worked in our other managed pubs, particularly the Bull in Henley, which is a similar High Street, food-oriented business.”
