It was quiet as it was a thursday evening but it was nice to have an intimate meal with my hubby without having to... More

We were staying in a nearby hotel so that we could spend some time exploring Stratford upon Avon and The Chequers Inn was recommended to us for good food. The atmosphere is wonderful in this very busy bar/restaurant. The staff are friendly and efficient and the food is excellent and very well presented as is the rest of the establishment.... More

Everytime we go the food and ambience is first class. saw Santa arrive Christmas eve too! Service is always excellent and have had romantic meals for two there as well as family lunches. Menu is varied and refreshed regularly. Even if you are not eating the good selection of real ales is well worth a visit.

Service was very friendly and efficient (the staff all worked together well as a team), the food tasty with a wide selection on offer, portion sizes were generous. Highly recommended but best to book as we'd have been... More

Just popped in for lunch and was very happy with the appearance, service and food - quite unexpected in the middle of 'nowhere'. Perfection would have been a wider selection of ales, but still 5 stars from me. The IPA was fine. I rate pubs and restaurants by testing their beefburgers which is a fairly universal currency. The Chequers' equalled... More
