Second visit and won't be coming back. First visit was better as we did not experience the sour face landlady, our first experience of this woman will be our last. The younger staff are really nice, but she is dreadful and I can't believe with all the comments about her on here that she is still facing people. She should... More

Booked a table for 4 on Friday night were told that only an 8.30 table was available. When we arrived the place was packed. We felt under pressure from the moment we walked in to get our orders placed. Around 9.45 the place completely emptied leaving us in the corner half way though our meal. The staff then started to...

Well tucked away down very winding lanes but well worth the effort. Very welcoming atmosphere and the dining experience is great. Menu is varied and lots of fish dish specials which were expertly prepared and presented.

don't think about having a celebration there at the weekend - they are not interested. their only interest is turnover of covers. we tried to book the dining room for 17 people for a sunday lunch time birthday celebration and the manager made it quite clear we were not welcome. He insisted we ordered our food a week in advance... More

Suspected food poisoning Where do I start?! I was about 15 when I started going to this pub - riding our horses we used to tie them up outside, meet our boyfriends for some drinks and then continue on our way. Good, friendly English pub. Fast forward a few years and I have had some extremely pleasant lunches in my... More

Must be the best pub/restaurant in the area.It is old and beamy with a great atmosphere. Nice people, good cooking and a choice of the restaurant with white table cloth etc or eat in the bar with a brasserie menu. Lots of very good fish. Maybe a touch more expensive than some nearby pubs doing food but well worth it.

My sister made a dinner reservation for Saturday August 29th. My fiancee and I were looking forward to the meal as my sister had spoken very highly about the restaurant's food. We arrived at about 6.30 for our reservation and received a very cold reception from the landlady. We ordered some cocktails to drink outside before dinner. The landlady wouldn't... More

We cannot comment on the food at this establishment as, in stark contrast to the times given on the website, the pub was not open on the afternoon of Wednesday 29th July even though the board outside stated food served all day! No apology received from the staff who claimed the board referred to Sunday opening hours!! Husband very disappointed... More

We haven't been here for many years but we were told how good the food is and they weren't wrong! Many places like to call themselves a 'gastropub' but the Chequers Inn at Well really is this, in fact you get more the feel of an intimate upmarket country restaurant than a pub when you walk in. The choice of... More
