WOW WOW WOW... I admit I am hard to please but do you know what, this was amazing.. The tastes in every mouthful really did make me understand the difference between serving food and genuinely cooking with passion and skill and the Michelin Star.. Things just went together so well.. Bad Points... only 2... the restaurant was nice but the... More

The food is excellent and I would thoroughly recommend the pork belly which just melts in your mouth. Having been to several Michelin starred restaurants we really liked the homely relaxed vibe of this restaurant. I can appreciate though due to the price and the rating that some visitors may feel the ambience isn't special enough. If we were ever... More

While staying in mid Wales for a few nights with my three sisters, we visited this restaurant in the pretty village of Montgomery. My expectations were very high having never been to a Michelin starred restaurant before. The canapés served on the terrace were very impressive but overall I was a bit underwhelmed by the experience. We shared two entrees... More

We have eaten here on several occasions and it's always amazing. This time I thoroughly enjoyed a starter of duck in cherry and hazelnut dressing followed by the pork accompanied with a delicious poached pear! The wine list is also excellent and I usually enjoy trying something new as well as my favourite Prosecco! The portions are very generous for... More

Having visited the Checkers on business (First review) I stated that I would return with my wife, this I did, for her 50th birthday treat,and what a treat it was, and to be quite honest expensive, because she won't accept lower quality in future, and that's going to be very difficult. We stayed for two nights, separate review of accommodation,... More

We have had several personal recommendations for this restaurant but this was our first visit and it fully lived up to its reputation. What first drew us here was a really interesting menu and when combined with the fantastic value for money of the short break midweek offer it was a no-brainer to come along. The main point is the...

We stayed at The Checkers for a Friday and Saturday after a 4 day trip around a number of other restaurants with rooms in South Wales. Whilst there were a number of real highlights during the week, the food and accommodation at The Checkers was easily the best overall. This is combined with a warm welcome, great service, a nice...

This has to be one of the best restaurants in Wales if not the UK. Everything of the best comes together here-the food, wine, service, welcome and all in a delightful location. There is no doubt that you pay for such quality but there is also no doubt that you receive great value for your money. Let me just add... More

Delicious food, warm welcome, friendly unpretentious service from one of the proprietors. It would be difficult to find better in Wales.

My partner and I treated ourseleves to a stay just after Valentines Day. The whole experience was wonderful, the staff were very welcoming and helpful and when we came down to dinner we didn't even have to tell the new staff who we were. I love fine dinning and I couldn't wait to try the menu; I had difficulty deciding... More
