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

Our second visit here for a meal and overnight stay and just a short review to say the quality is still as high as before. This time we went for the 7 course tasting menu and it was some of the best food we've eaten - the Dover sole was sublime. The front of house is friendly, relaxed but completely... More

I cannot fault the restaurant side of the business - professional with outstanding food - they even cooked me up a delicious vegan meal so I could dine here alongside my father and it was by far one of the tastiest dishes I have ever eaten. However accommodation aspect of the business lets it down; they had accidentally overbooked themselves... More

Stunning food, lovely room and very pleasant and relaxing food. The pre dinner canapés set the standard for the evening so we knew we were in for a treat when we had beet root meringue with horseradish and lengths of crackling with dip. The meal itself was superb with my husband loving the black pudding and oxtail bonbon and giving... More

An anazing culinary experience, I was one of a group of ten and between us we sampled most of the menu, everyone loved what they had chosen ! How often would that happen.? The staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble right through to beakfast which was perfect. Our room was lovely and our friends all seemed pleased with... More
