I have enjoyed the hospitality, superb food and lovely decor of Chequers for over three years. I can honestly say that it is my favourite pub and restaurant and that I have never experienced anything other than top class service an cuisine. James and Kirsty work very hard to achieve this consistency and deserve the success they are enjoying. I... More

We were most pleasantly surprised when we ate here last night. We were staying at the Chase over the road from here for a couple of nights and didn't want to eat in the same restaurant for the second night so walked over to the Chequers. Now I am not a great fish fan so I was a bit apprehensive... More

Really very very good food with attention on how it was prepared and presented. On top of that, a nice surrounding/interiour en above all very nice staff. I had the... More

So we've come here at least 10 times and never ever have we come away asking for anything more. Food: the sharing plate for a starter was just enough and the batter on the cod was light with an airy texture. I had the bream and my father had the chicken which were both perfect (obviously I had to try... More

We stayed in the hotel nearby but loved the look of this pub - the restaurant was fully booked but we were offered a table in the bar which was busy but the food was delicious and the staff were very friendly - I would definitely recommend this place, well done Chef you know how to cook!

We wanted some good pub fare and recently standards in pubs around the country have been improving. This pub looks well cared for and the decor has been designed by someone talented: the colours, the furniture and mirrors etc. The garden is a delight as well. I read the last review about this pub which was less than good and... More

Food excellent Environment excellent Spoilt by landlady who seems to serve and smile through gritted teeth. Seemed insincere in her polite gestures. We wouldn't return as didn't feel particularly welcome

What a well maintained, delightful country setting with outdoor seating, friendly staff and excellent menu. A little more pricey than we're used to for this kind of food but presented well, cooked to order (I know because they cooked something especially for me from a different menu) and very tasty. Lovely (I have to say reasonably priced) glass of dessert... More
