I personally recommend this adorable place because I am yet to find fault. The setting is just heavenly come summer or winter. The beautiful gardens with a chilled wine, or the log fire with a mulled wine. The Staff are friendly and helpful and they all smile and are attentive. It's always a busy... read more

We often visit throughout the year and we really cannot fault anything. The Staff and Managers are all very attentive. The atmosphere is relaxed yet still buzzing and the food and wine is faultless. The newly added area at the rear is a really nice addition to this picture perfect setting. Perfection. Thank you for yet another great lunch. See... More

Met up with family here for Sunday Lunch. Firstly, i must say that booking was really easy. Friendly on the phone and option of times for lunch. Great start, The service throughout the meal was also very good, not overbearing but always plenty of staff around. Something you don't always see these days as restaurants cut back on spending.

Having discovered this gorgeous little old inn on our travels, I almost dont want to share how good it is! Bar is open from 12 noon till 11pm and evening food from 6pm till 9pm. Menu was up to date and sumptuous. We had the scallops and quail ballotine to start and then the excellently cooked lamb rump and seared... More

We have been visiting the Chequers for around 6 years now and it just gets better and better. The service is always fantastic- smiley staff that cannot do enough for you. The menu always has lots to choose from- we especially liked the menu bear Christmas time one year. It is fairly priced as the portions are very big and... More

We do like the Chequers and will come back regularly, but having stopped off on our way home from Norfolk last night, we had a less than inspiring meal. Admittedly there was a large wedding in progress, so this may have had an effect on the kitchen. Whilst the service and attention were good as always, my wife's steak frites... More

Lovely place to spend a summer afternoon or evening relaxing with a glass of something. Beautiful surroundings, friendly atmosphere, gorgeous food.. Drinks are on the expensive side so we only visit as a treat sometimes.

Beautiful old-fashioned hostelry has real log fires in the winter. Staff pleasant @ polite, food imaginative.Grantham close by for a look @ the historic coaching inn in the high street dates from 1200 with beautifully carved oak panelling and exquisite ceilings in the upstairs dining room. Check out the church if it is open or wander along the winding, slow... More

Very attractive exterior and a pleasant welcome to a beautiful pub. We were showed though to an otherwise empty room,so not much atmosphere, though a couple of other tables were later seated there. Ordered steak et frites rare, but it came dark brown; the waitress took it away but brought it back later, the chef having told her that this... More

Nice Pub Restaurant. Good owner, she really looks after you. Recently extended to the rear for parties and functions. Pleasant efficient staff. Both drink and food are very good. Nice location, extra parking on cricket pitch to the side. Dog friendly. Booking advisable, especially larger numbers and Sundays. If they have a Party in you may not get served.
