The Chequers is a great country pub. It is warm and cosy and the staff are lovely. It's a good place to go for a meal lunchtime or in the evening. It has a good menu of pub favourites plus specials. Steaks are a speciality. The steak and kidney suet pudding was lovely. Nice fresh vegetables and a choice of... More

A regular eating house for me. Steak is prime quality and they know what a rare steak is! Always cooked exactly as it should be. Excellent staff, who know the menu. Great team. Booking advised as gets very busy.

Came for Sunday lunch with family after hearing great reviews and turned up with a big appetite. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The menu options were good but, given we turned up halfway through their Sunday lunch service (12-8pm) they had ready run out of beef, had half a portion of roast chicken left, a couple of lamb roasts and some...

Firstly, the food was superb - well cooked, decent sized portions and a well balanced and varied menu. Was informed the owners are known for their steaks - can see why. Lovely specials as well - all competitively priced. Service was excellent - friendly staff who could not be more accommodating and actually knew the menu (a nice change to... More

Called in here for a meal after a busy days touring. Had no problems obtaining a table - it was a weekday, however we noted it was getting busier as the evening progressed. Food selection was great, portion sizes good value and the meal (rack of lamb) cooked well. Friendly welcome and service.

We stayed two nights at this charming pub whilst attending a wedding nearby. Ian and Jackie were great hosts - nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel really welcome. The pub has a great atmosphere and is very popular - deservedly so! Dinner there on Friday night was absolutely superb - fresh food, much of it sourced... More

Bank holiday Monday, nowhere is open, we're passing through on a road trip. First look at the menu and we resigned ourselves to the higher pricing than the previously planned McDonald's, and soon felt we should be paying more. As a vegan I didn't see much on the menu, however the chef cooked me up a vegan tikka masala which... More

Loved it! We called and booked for three nights, told them we'd be a bit late and found the table set for us. Ian and Jackie were wonderful hosts, took our daughters under their wing and made for a delightful stay. Great food, great beer and terrific atmosphere in the bar. Really good steaks and variety on the menu. Probably... More

We dropped in here one evening as a large family group to have dinner. The service was fantastic, polite and accommodating. The food was good and as a nice touch they put the sides as share plates. The kids enjoyed their meals. We will be back if in the area again.
