“Lovely Meal Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Went to the chequers for a family birthday. The food is really lovely - mix of british and italian. Lovely pastas and fish. Wonderful starters - squid is yummy. Everyone had a real mix of course and we all really enjoyed our meals - gluten free chocolate torte with raspberry sorbet it AMAZING. Best part however was the service - really exceptional, friendly, courteous and just really really good. I would recommend them. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. - great for couples, families or celebrations.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

I regularly chose to eat and drink here and would recommend the sausage or steak! the food is always good and they are very accommodating to my wishes. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. There is always a brilliant atmosphere. I wish them all the best for the future :)

Dear Louise,
Thank you so much for the lovely review- and for visiting us so regularly!Our steak and sausages, like all our meat, come from our local butchers, BW Deacon, and I quite agree they are delicious. Our team here are really dedicated to providing excellent customer service so I'm thrilled to hear we've been looking after you so well and will certainly look forward to doing so again in the future.
Kind Regards,
Philip.

“Good village pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Being a regular at the chequers I often eat in the restaurant and have no complaints on that part, would recommend the steak to anyone! The staff are very welcoming and friendly. It also has a nice atmosphere when coming for a few drinks with friends, glad to see the pub in good hands and hope to see it have many more years at this success :)

Hello Carly and thank you so much for your really lovely comments. We've had a great 7 months since opening which we could never have achieved without the support and loyalty of local regulars such as yourself. It's great to hear you're still enjoying the food,service and atmosphere at The Chequers and I know all the staff look forward to welcoming you back here again and again.
See you soon!
Kind Regards,
Philip.

“Very slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

My husband and I visited the pub on Sunday for lunch. We telephoned ahead to see if they could accommodate us, which we were told they could. We arrived about 2.30pm, well after the lunchtime rush. We ordered our mains which took 45 minutes to arrive. There was no apology from the waiter when the food finally arrived. Food was ok. We would have ordered pudding but the long wait for the mains left us feeling annoyed and we could not be bothered to hang around even longer for pudding. I note I am not the first to comment on the slow service. I am not in a hurry to go back.

Dear Gemma,
I'm terribly sorry to hear you had such a wait for your meals which, I quite agree, is completely unacceptable.I can't imagine what could have caused such a delay but would certainly like to investigate this further.I have tried to contact you over this past week to discuss it further and left you a message so please do call me back so that I can apologise in person.
Kind Regards,
Philip.
