Divine meal in relaxed surroundings

From the moment we walked in, we were made to feel so welcome. It was such a relaxed atmosphere with a comforting background buzz of other diners. Every single one of the staff was fantastic.

On Broad Street , in front of the fine Georgian Town Hall. Montgomery is a lovely town to have a stroll before dinner or lunch. We went for the evening tasting menu with accompanying flight of wine to match. The wine measures were generous, perhaps too generous. Service was attentive and friendly, with a full description of each wine and... More

Superb... If you are anywhere near Montgomery you should try and eat here! The mix of great food, a warm welcome, friendly staff and appealing decor (with a subtle french twist to match the food) make this a must.

Excellent service. Had the tasting menu, food 100% in every way. Extensive wine list. Staff were attentive without being intrusive which is what you want in the setting. Decor and furnishings are simple but timeless.

We were lucky to get into Checkers on the long weekend and having visited it in October, our second visit may have been even better than the first. The service was friendly, the food was excellent, the ambience stylish and the company exhilarating. I can highly recommend this restaurant. The menu was difficult to choose from (too may appealing options)... More

I could really write a very long list of how good the food is at this pub. But the best of all I can say call & book & you will certainly not regret it. We have been eating with most celebrated, talented multi starred chefs. But the Checkers food is better & without London prices. I wish we lived... More

The evening started with a delightful array of canapés. Among them was a fantastic melt in the mouth beetroot meringue with horseradish cream. We opted for the taster menu at £75 per person. We started off with a pea velouté with pancetta and quails eggs and a mint cream, it was exquisite to say the least. It was followed by... More

The previous reviews pretty much say it all. My wife and I were treated to a meal and overnight accommodation together with breakfast as a Birthday treat. All was excellent with the 6 course Spring Taster Menu although as ever with my limited experience of Michelin starred establishments the wines are vastly overpriced. The only negative aspect I have to... More

This was our first visit to Chequers having previously eaten at several Michelin star restaurants (some excellents and some not so good). We can now say that Chequers trumps them all. We had the taster menu including an absolutely superb scallop course and a tremendous rhubarb suffle. In fact we enjoyed every single course - each with carefully balanced flavours... More
