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.

15 of us came to eat here to celebrate a birthday on a busy Saturday night, and we all left with happy tums and smiles on our faces! The staff were all so friendly, and did a great job at keeping us all happy. The drinks were continuously flowing, and we never had much of a wait for anything considering... More

We took my 89 year old mother-in-law to The Chequers for lunch on Mothers Day. She normally eats very little, but ate mushrooms in garlic & white wine sauce with a brioche, followed by Roast Pork and all the trimmings - including a Yorkshire Pudding- leaving only one of three potatoes! My husband and I had the duck in hoisin... More
