Poor visit with good friends
Apr 2021 • Friends
Staff friendly but food took so long to come...waited about 1 1/2 hours from starter to main course. We had to ask constantly for drinks to be refilled and where our food were. The music was far tooo loud for a restaurant setting , more like a disco at times!!!!!! Suspect roast station, hadn’t seen any replenishment in two hours I sat near!!!!

Sunday Lunch after a walk
May 2021 • Couples
Seating is obviously outside but with a cracking view of the river. Staff and pub on the ball with social distancing and hand cleanser. The staff are great and really helpful, we had the beef roast which was lovely. Worth a trip and also a great price and menu.

Fab Sunday Carvery
Sep 2020 • Friends
Went this weekend for Sunday Carvery with family and friends in a bubble of 4, was fabulous!! The call to the carvery was a little slow, but in these times of distancing and cleaning it was more than acceptable, and we were able to have a drink and a chat first! The next time on-one fancies cooking, we’ll be heading here without doubt. I can also vouch for the delivery service, as experienced during lockdown

Terrible service and so slow!
Sep 2020 • Couples
My partner and I booked a table for Sunday roast. As soon as we got through the door there was a hand sanitiser machine but was empty. We were taken to our table after being told to wait whilst our table was cleaned. When we sat down, we were told someone would be over to take our order for drinks. It took almost 15mins before someone did! We ordered 2 drinks and asked for ice. We waited a further 20mins and asked one of the waitresses who advised the drinks were being done. Another 10mins passed and still nothing so my partner went up to the bar to ask and we were told it was coming. When it finally arrived there was no ice so I asked the waitress who advised they were out of ice. We then said we were ready to order our food. We had to wait around 15mins before we could actually go up to the carvery. The guy serving was great. Whilst we were queuing for our food other customers in front said they had waited over 2hours for their food! By the time we got to the front the food was running out. The service was unbelievably terrible and has put us off returning. I also would like to mention that every table in the pub was taken and didn’t feel social distancing was in place. Such a shame as used to be a lovely restaurant of ours to go for Sunday dinner.

Marvellous setting / food could be better
Sep 2020
Enviable setting right on a quiet stretch of the River Medway and overlooking Aylesford's famous medieval bridge. Bit of a shame therefore that the food is no more than just about average.

Best takeaway EVER
Sep 2020
We ordered a takeaway on line, the website was easy to use, paid via PayPal. You can order your food up to two weeks time and select a 1 hour slot. The food arrive on time, still hot and on recyclable packaging. The order was correct. There was plenty of food and it was very tasty indeed. The beer batter fish was melt in your mouth and the mushy peas were really tasty as was all the food we ordered. WE WILL BE BACK.

Amazing lunch
Aug 2020 • Family
Visited the Chequers this week with a toddler and a baby, lovely outside area on the banks of the River Medway, staff were friendly and attentive, food was excellent.
Squid to start was like a meal in itself followed by the BEST chicken Caesar . Anchovies on Caesar were fresh, not tinned which they are usually, everyone in my party were more than pleased.
Will definitely visit again very soon.

Unbelievably amazing
Mar 2020 • Solo
During this awful virus the Chequers has been absolutely amazing. They have gone way and above the call of duty and nothing is too much trouble. Their menu for delivery is great and the veg, fruit, salad and meat boxes are second to none. Their delivery staff are incredible, always bringing a smile, cheery hello and brilliant service. Cannot praise them enough for caring for our community. Thank you so much to the owners and their superb team. Xxx

Really lucky to have pub like this on our doorstep with a great selection on the menu, nice fish dishes, steaks are big and juicy and the Sunday roasts are great value.

very disappointed
Dec 2019
I have eaten many times at the Chequers in the past year and only on one occasion prior to christmas lunch was I disappointed (I had an curry, which was enjoyable (but naan bread ridiculously hard), when I complained to Aidan, he just said oh I left it in the oven too long and walked off. Attending for christmas meal this year an meal I would say moderate at best, my biggest irritance was that I ordered an starter of mush rooms at least 6 weeks before and was told they didn't have them, but I could have chicken instead-when one pays £75.00 for an pre booked meal, one expects too get what was ordered. So my opinion of the day in question POOR, room for immense improvement. THE PLUS OF THE DAY WAS THAT THE STAFF WERE EFFICIENT, POLITE AND COURTEOUS, it is an shame in my 2 plus hours there no management available. Would I recommend, yes for the food has on many occasions been excellent, but feel vast improvements can and should be made when catering for such an major event, and maybe the Chef could improve on his peoples skills
