Fabulous food gorgeous people, highly recommend this restaurant and boutique hotel. It just happens to be in the most magical of towns with the friendliest of people. Lots of little shops and a castle on a hill to wander up to. We were treated to the taster menu and could barely manage to finish it was exquisite totally unforgettable And... More

A mid-week taster menu and stay-over for two was almost impossible to better. Clean, comfortable room, pleasant, knowledgeable staff and fine French style dining at its pinnacle. We took the evening taster menu of 7 courses. Each a work of art, immaculately presented with such perfect flavour and texture combinations abounding, but still in sufficient quantity to satisfy. Absolutely perfect... More

Our recent trip to the Checkers was a wonderful birthday treat from my wife. Although we spend a considerable amount of time in Shropshire, strangely enough we had yet to discover Montgomery. It is an absolute treasure of a town and deserves much greater recognition. A wonderful collection of stylish Georgian properties combined with a great pub (The Crown), a... More

We stayed at the Checkers for two nights in August. Our room (Le Pruneau) overlooked the town square, but was very quiet. Although the room was quite small, it was clean, comfortable, and well-furnished. Facilities included wifi, a fridge, cafetière, tea pot, ground coffee, loose tea, fresh milk and home-made biscuits. The bathroom was airy with an impressively enormous free... More

We needed to get away and slow down. Parked in the square, checked in, nipped over to The Dragon, quick wash...... Fantastic aperitifs (parmisan biscuits wow), friendly service, okay so I didn't understand one item on the menu, but clearly explained without me feeling foolish. Thank you Kathryn. White wine with a zing, green lip my favourite. Excellent food, friendly... More

This is the third time at Checkers and this time we brought 21 people with us for lunch. I don't know why I write reviews and introduce others to this restaurant with rooms as I stand little chance of getting in again! Both we and everyone else we tell about The Checkers rave about the place. It is the nearest... More

The room was well appointed and comfortable, the low door into the bathroom wasn't a problem to us but may have become an irritation if we had stayed for a few days. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. We would definitely recommend it.

We have stayed and eaten at The Checkers 6 or 7 times in the last 15 months. I cannot recommend it too highly. We usually stay in Agen, which overlooks the beautiful village square, but have never been bothered by noise from the street. The room is fairly small, but very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The bathroom is down a... More
