Terrific gem in historic town

Simply excellent food! Suitable for a special treat. This was our first time in a michelin star restaurant, and we were a bit nervous we'd feel out of place.

We visited checkers in June 2015 for my 25th birthday with my close family. We had a wonderful time, prior to the meal we enjoyed canapés and champagne in the car and then thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu particularly the scallops and beef. We also had the matching wines which were an excellent accompaniment to the food. The plate of... More

A special lunch for a special birthday at Checkers proved to also be an exceptional culinary experience. From the melt in the mouth amuse bouches with pre lunch drinks it was clear that this was going to be something special. The scallops were cooked to perfection,the cheese soufflé light and full of flavour and the foie gras with a cherry... More

Having just moved to the area we decided to go to the best restaurant for our anniversary and the majority of people recommended Chequers. We went on Friday and We were not disappointed. We opted for the Taster menu which was absolutely fabulous especially as we also opted for the flight of wine. The food was some of the best... More

We were with friends who have used this restaurant before and we were celebrating meeting up again. Despite very rainy weather outside, we enjoyed warmth and great food inside. The quality of the cuisine is second to none. It's a shame it's so far from our home in Derbyshire.

Don't tell the owners, but this midweek deal including a six-course tasting menu is wonderful value. We enjoyed a birthday meal with friends that was truly memorable from the first canape onwards. Each of the courses was well-conceived and executed, with a well-chosen glass of wine to accompany each one. The portion sizes were well judged to make the whole... More

Top quality, Michelin-level food in a charming, informal restaurant. Prices are quite reasonable considering the quality and care on offer.
