Amazing Birthday celebration!!

Last week I had the best ever Birthday Party with 25 friends and family at the Chequers! We have been holidaying in Deal for 30 years and are now lucky enough to own a holiday house in this wonderful place.

We have been going to Chequers for many years now so have seen it develop to what it is today. We now feel like part of the family and can always be sure of being treated as if we are special customers. They are always trying to offer new things whether it is a special 'gourmet' night or a themed... More

This place is just fabulous. I can't find anywhere else like it in the area. It's worth the 5 minute car ride from Deal or Sandwich or just walk to here for a lovely venue to eat, drink and just take in the lovely countryside. I went last Sunday and had a superb platter lunch with wonderful Macon Lugny to... More

We had an absolutely mouth watering lunch at Chequers restaurant which also doubles as a cookery school on certain days of the week. Two of us ate rotisseried chicken and one a roast belly of pork. The vegetables were perfectly cooked and crunchy particularly the roast potatoes. Service was friendly and professional. There were two starters and three main courses... More

We have frequented The Chequers for many years. Having moved away from Deal a couple of years ago, we have not been there quite so often in recent times. So it was a real treat to go there today with the family and to experience Pieter's cooking again. Indeed - it was even better than before! Pieter and his team... More

Six adults went for a meal. We were told they had no menu and only did a platter. Well – small chicken, bit of salad, red cabbage, little bit of terrine – £15 per head. Not even enough to feed two adults let alone six! Charged £90! Even had the cheek to ask us for a tip! NEVER AGAIN.

I took a friend along to the Chequers a couple of weeks ago. The ambience of the restaurant is quite informal and very welcoming. It was so conducive just to chatting, eating and having a really relaxing meal with a friend. I felt really at home. The food was of a high quality, well prepared and I felt that I... More

We've been to Chequers several times before but not on a Saturday night for a while. The food is always so fresh and seasonal and always interesting. There is currently a set menu on this night where you are in the hands of the chef, with a platter of starters, choice of meat/fish main and a pudding. I loved not... More

This is our second very enjoyable trip to the Chequers with friends who live nearby. Each time we've visited we've comprised of a large lunch party with a good mix of adults and young children. The food is planned by charming South African maitre d' and owner Peter. There was no fixed menu and Peter and the team, cook a... More

We took a friend here for his birthday. He is a chef so the food had to be of a high quality. The evening was wonderful from start to finished. Greeted by the owner Peter, he made us feel very welcome and he looked after us all evening adding greatly to the experience. Set menu £25 per head. Interesting and... More
