We were visiting family and friends at the Checkers for my husbands 70th birthday, and the meals were good and at a very good price. 1/3 of what we would have paid in Norway. We will visit again sertainly.

Situated along The Street in Wickham Bishops, The Chequers pub is a lovely pub that serves good food and better beer. The garden is a little disappointing, but inside there is a warm, homely atmosphere. And - if you're a big ale fan - there is a decent selection of bitters and other beers to choose from, the pick of... More

Went here with friends for a Sunday roast. Most of us had the roast beef which was very thin strips of meat. Large portions but everything tasted very bland and one of our children didn't eat much at all as said our home cooked roast and school dinner roast tasted better. Our friend had the steak and kidney pie which... More

Nice little pub with lots of character and friendly, welcoming staff. Lunch menu extensive with something to suit everyone - the portion sizes for the main meals are massive!!!! The Garlic Mushrooms were tasty and a perfect starter. Most of the main meals come with a choice of potatoes and vegetables. I chose the Somerset Chicken with Cider Sauce which... More

This is a small olde worlde country pub with excellent service and very good fresh cooked food. The menu catered for all tastes as did the specials board and we were spoilt for choice. Despite being fairly busy we didn't have to wait too long for our food. My wife had the ricotta cannelloni together with garlic bread & salad... More

My extended family (12 in total) recently visited this really friendly little pub for Sunday lunch. What a great choice, the roast lunch was really tasty, with a generous range of fresh vegetables and really well cooked meats. If you have a good appetite, I would highly recommend the mixed roast, a combination of the three roast meats of the... More

My partner and I went there for a Sunday lunch as the place was recommended to us by friends . We were told the portions were generous and as my partner has a very healthy appetite we thought we would give it a try as virtually impossible to find great food in large portions ie you always seem to get...
