A really lovely place. We happened upon it by chance and stopped off for a cup of tea and cake while heading towards Deal. We were greeted by a very friendly lady (a co-owner) who told us all about the social enterprise cookery classes they run there. Would really recommend a visit and we can't wait to come back for...

We organised a dinner with 30 friends at the Chequers last week during the Royal Cinque Ports Open Golf week. Absolutely delicious food and very special atmosphere. All the guests were amazed as many remember the Chequers of 25 years ago!The canapes were outstanding especially the crab,duck confit was best ever. Special mention for the madelaines and citrus cream…….unbelievable! Thankyou... More

Always a great experience. Delicious food and ambience, especially when Pieter is there! We try to take friends with us as it is a really interesting concept being in a kitchen and watching as the food is prepared.

We dined at chequers recently and loved every minute. The restaurant is in a beautiful location, very quiet and peaceful. We had a delicious meal and plenty of it! The dessert of madeleines with freshly whipped lemon cream was amazing. We would advise anyone holidaying in deal and surrounding areas to visit this charming restaurant. The staff were attentive and... More

The sun was setting as we arrived and we had just enough time for a drink outside in the last rays of sunshine. It was catch up time and everyone was hungry. I did know the menu and Saturdays is a tasting menu. You eat a set menu and unless you have dislikes/food allergies everyone has the same meal. The... More

Booked table as husband wanted to sample the rotisserie chicken menu. We had not visited since restaurant has changed hands and I am so pleased we did. The menu was choice of two starters mains and deserts so you know food will be freshly cooked - in fact you can see the chef preparing and cooking the food. My husband... More

Welcoming, friendly staff made our visit special. Pieter remembered my friend who had dined there some weeks ago and he has genuine interest in guests/diners. The food was presented imaginatively and was cooked with skill by the talented chef. Good flavour combinations. This is a gem by the sea.

Visiting Chequers is not like going to a standard restaurant. It's like going round to Pieter's, watching Luke's amazing cooking whilst chatting about food, cooking, entertainment, health- everything. You could not be made to feel more welcome. Pieter greeted us and brought us a drink to where we were sat outside on the terrace. My friend and I had the... More
