...the ambience is not what you expect. THE FOOD COULD NOT BE FAULTED, but the surroundings left a lot to be desired. The rear dining room, whilst cleanly decorated was extremely noisy to the point of not being able to hear my wife's comments who was sitting opposite me. The bare wood tables, knife, fork and two spoons, plus napkin... More

We dined on a Saturday night but we were not staying over. The restaurant is split into two and we were in the back. It’s nicely decorated and welcoming without being pretentious, however unfortunately for us there were two groups in there and both were noisy which made conversation very difficult. The food was truly exceptional. Generous portions without being... More

This is a review of the Checkers accommodation, not the restaurant. On arrival we were shown to our room, it was lovely, just be carful of the low entrance to the bathroom, at least in the room we had, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom well appointed with good shampoo/soap etc. the sleep quality was good. The cookies, ahhhhh, say... More

My wife took me for a meal. Great service, fabulous food and pleasant decor. What more can I say, the pork belly was awesome, the creme brulee was fantastic and our every need was met. We will be back. The only very slight area for improvement I have is that the cheese board contained French and Welsh cheeses. Do away... More

The slightly high prices aside, this is an outstanding restaurant. The stars of the show were a sublime beetroot meringue which arrived as a mise en bouche, and an assiette of lemon and ginger desserts. I do, however, fear for the sanity of the chef, as the latter does not appear to have made it onto their summer menu. Almost... More

Went to checkers from a recommendation from a friend. Was a bit out of our way but made the effort anyway. Wow is the word, the food was exceptional. The service was very polite and professional. Will almost go to say it was one of the best meals we have ever had! Hidden gem in hidden Wales.

Our annual sibling reunion was held here. The room was excellent. The bed was comfortable, and everything was clean. The facilities and amenities were high quality, although a shower would have been preferred to a bath with shower tap! Breakfast was a tasty full welsh of local produce...how nice is that? Would stay again, and would recommend without a doubt.

Eight of us booked in for the annual family gathering. We take it in turns to choose where we stay; the only criteria is that it has to be in Wales. Checkers just about ticks that box. The welcome was warm and friendly by staff who clearly want to get it right. Our room was spacious and well appointed, although... More

This was a special anniversary trip for my wife and I and we had reserved the room and booked a table in the restaurant some months back. We arrived at about 4.00pm to a very warm welcome and were shown to our room, The Agen. It was quite large, furnished in a cottage style, overlooking the street in front of... More

It would be enough to simply visit the town of Montgomery, a town plucked staright out of a Jane Austen novel with the added extras of its wonderful castle,extraordinary Bunners Hardware shop and fascinating museum but the Checkers Inn has a well earned a reputation of its own. Every time that I have brought Curious Travelers here we have had... More
