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

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
