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.

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.

Decided to go to our local for a lunch with my Fiancée for our 1st day off together in weeks. Checked the website... Dog Friendly... website said Yes. Took a rainy walk to the pub... opened the door... walked in and woman walking past shouted... NO DOGS IN SERVING TIME! I explained I checked the website and was brushed off... More

This pub has really nice food at good pub prices, is always really busy (best to book a table rather than turn up and hope for the best) and a good atmosphere. Not sure the layout of the pub is that 'comfortable' for my liking but can't fault anything else. Good, friendly waiting staff.

I've been coming here a few times recently. I find the food consistently good and the portions just right. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. You could tell it's a great place to go as you normally have to book to be sure of getting a table both lunchtime and evening. I would highly recommend the pub.

Absolutely can't rate "The Chequers" highly enough. Very friendly, attentive staff, wide variety of great food, wines and beers. My dietary requirements were met with no fuss or bother and I will be back time and time again.
