Good home cooking

This was my first visit to this pub and I was pleasantly surprised. There is a good,varied menu and the food appeared to be home cooked. The lamb moussaka and the Somerset chicken were very good. Well worth a visit for an easy meal.

Haven't been to The Chequers for a few months, to find everything was just as good if not better with my first time return visit. Great food with generous portions & lovely humble service. Very excited to come back for more.

Have just returned from a lovely family meal at The Chequers. The food was plentiful with a wide choice of menu options, including some fantastic options for children.

A popular country pub serving a range of well kept local beers which also has an extensive menu. However, at the end of the week they serve the most delicious fresh fish dishes. Their skate is simply fantastic- good portions and excellently cooked. Booking a table is recommended as the restaurant gets very busy - and I am not at... More

I have been here many times now and it never fails. Food severed here is always a treat with the Guinness being better than any place I have had. Owners are very welcoming and the place has a lovely homily feeling.

Nice enough food, drinks prices average to expensive for a town pub, only its in a village which I'd expect to be cheaper. I've never experienced the bad service others have mentioned.
