This is my third visit and my wife's second, given that it's a two and a half hour drive you should deduce that we like the place. It all starts with the booking, the staff are superb, the communication faultless, you feel really good! When you arrive in the lounge/bar pre ordered drinks are delivered immediately, followed by canapés, these... More

Last night was my third visit with my wife to The Checkers and we came with good friends visiting from out of town. We had recommended the restaurant to our friends and are very pleased to say that the experience did not disappoint on any level. We all opted for the Taster Menu which consisted of 7 courses of beautifully... More

This was my second visit to The Checkers. The first being in March for Saturday Lunch, six of us. It was great, the ambience, the staff, the service and of course the food. First class no issues at all and our thoughts were expressed in a report on Trip Advisor at the time (SteveM being the author). So it was... More

We came here for a very special occasion - my mum's 70th birthday. We had the tasting menu in the restaurant and stayed the night in the gorgeous rooms. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed it, the food was delicious, the rooms were gorgeous and the service was excellent. Will definitely be returning here, it's a lovely little village to... More

We had a great evening at The Checkers a week ago. I thought the service was just excellent. It has been a long time since we have enjoyed such friendly service and such a welcoming atmosphere. These people know what they are doing. The food was very nice. The menu notes that it can be seasoned to your liking. Something... More

This was our third stay at The Chequers, and the service and excellent food and wine never fail to disappoint. We stayed over and the rooms are luxurious and comfortable. Can't wait to go back again!

We'd eaten here once before with friends and it was the only place Where I wanted to celebrate my transition to certified OAP. I like everything about the Checkers, but two things stand out, the staff and the food, both compliment each other and made for a perfect birthday. My one very minor criticism, the food was not piping hot,... More

Our good friend Margaret gave us a gift voucher for this restaurant. We live some way from Montgomery, so it was great to be able to book a room. The room was great with old world charm but wonderful modern facilities. The staff were were most welcoming and the service impeccable. The meal was divine, and although 'full on' fine... More
