Stayed here a week or so ago. Booked through last minute.com. Quoted £60 for a double room, hotel wants you to pay cash not card " because of the charges " the owner said repeatedly. Made sure I had required amount of cash. Was asked for £70. Breakfast extra. No mention on web site so buyers beware

Want there with my boyfriend for a Sunday meal, although the decor was outdated it was homely. Staff were polite and the food was great, would highly recommend as it's was not to pricey for the amount of food and quality you get

I have been dining at the Chequers for over 15 years, as I have friends who live near by and we always go to the Chequers for lunch whenever I visit. I would call it a classic Yorkshire inn - the menu is full of traditional English classics, but the food is the best for miles around. I believe some... More

Brochure states a family business that cares. How ironic when its no children allowed - adults only! The food is very good but there is no childrens menu. Restaurant is large but in need of a redecoration to bring it into the 21st century!
