I have eaten at the checkers a couple of times before for very special occasions and it has always been an amazing experience. Our meal on the 28th December was no exception. Amazing flavours and so much attention to detail. We ordered the 7 course taster menu for our table for two and I accompanied my meal with the wine... More

Just before Christmas, to celebrate my wife's birthday, we booked and this time, we thought the tasting menu was better than ever. The only argument we had was over which course was the star of the show. Well done to 'The Frenchman and the Farmers Daughters'.

Everything was fantastic at The Checkers last night. Exceptional food, brilliantly presented ( no disappointments in any of the 7 courses) and all the staff keen to make the evening memorable. Lovely atmoshphere, buzzy and noisy, a proper celebration. I wish I had trusted chef and gone for the venison, which was a delicious very rare steak, but I'll know... More

Another excellent meal at Checkers. The food is cooked and presented beautifully, the wine list is interesting and the staff are friendly and helpful. There are some really good eating places in the South Shropshire/Powys area but this is a class above.

We went for a 2 day mid week break that included 2 nights bed and breakfast and two 3 course meals off the a la carte menu. When we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and we also had the room we had booked upgraded (if we wanted) - we took advantage of this and, on hindsight, would... More

We met friends in Montgomery for a meal at the Checkers. We were immediately made very welcome and enjoyed a drink and some wonderful canapes in the bar lounge. Our meal was absolutely delicious and we couldn't fault it all. We finished off with coffee and petit fours in the lounge. Wonderful food, great service....all in all a lovely evening.... More

It’s very difficult to add anything meaningful to the plaudits already heaped on the Checkers, but, having long wanted to experience the place and finally having done so, it seems churlish not to add a brief note. We took advantage of the room/tasting menu package and were not disappointed. I am prone to be critical but the welcome, the front... More

We have been going to the Checkers regularly for over 2 years now and, although we love the food, service and atmosphere, we are disappointed at the lack of new dishes. I think the pork canapé and the cheese soufflé have been on the menu every single time we have visited - and the beetroot meringues are not far behind.... More

Taster menu never fails to impress with the variety and quality of food on offer, service was at its usual high standard and most accommodating with the kitchen being able to slot in the legendary Cheese Souffle which one should not miss out on. In all, its all been stated before in my previous reviews, Very satisfied and we will... More

We visited on an evening in the week & were welcomed by a lovely log burner & a warm welcome. Drinks & canapes were served in the small but cosy waiting area. We ordered our food after much deliberation over a fantastic menu! Any questions we asked were answered clearly. And the food was simply amazing! We will definitely be... More
