Regardless of claims elsewhere we had the best food of our trip at The Chequers, the presentation and taste were perfect. Great selection of wines and beers meant that everyone... More

All were very tasty and well presented on huge platters. The veg was nice, all roasted and well seasoned. The one... More

Saturday night dinner. Arrived an hour early so we had some drinks before eating. Ordered the curried lamb scotch egg; salt and pepper squid for starters. For the main course we had duck tart and the ruby red beef. All finished off by a lovely chocolate fondant. Dishes are perfectly cooked and all of them are excellent choices! The restaurant... More

That's why consistency is important and The Chequers offers that .Consistently well cooked food with quality ingredients, served efficiently by smart intelligent young kids, whose parents must be very proud of them. The Chequers won't disappoint and will... More
