My husband and I stayed at the Checkers after a recommendation from friends. Our room (Agen Lot et Garonne) was lovely, but over a fish and chip shop and with the window open, the waft of cooking smells wasn't very pleasant! There is no option to choose the time you eat, so everyone gets served at the same time. This... More

This was our first visit and when we were asked if we were happy with the fixed 6-course menu we said we were. The food was very good, service excellent, but we left feeling slightly underwhelmed. When you are paying over £150 for two you expect to be wowed. The formal style of the cooking and service is rather at... More

What can we say? Stayed for two nights with some dear friends; wonderful hospitality and food out of this world. I especially loved the cheese souffle and the team were careful to tailor the menu to my non-fish eating preference! Amazing.

My wife and I joined two local friends here for mid week dinner. Despite having a cold I could taste how excellent each dish was, from the divine amuse bouche to the sensational beef wellington. The cold probably prevented me from enjoying the puddings as much as I wanted. The thing I really enjoyed was finding that extra flavour on... More

Once again totally amazing food, presented so artistically and bursting with flavour!! Art on a plate really is the only way to describe the presentation. The flavours through every dish shout out loud on the taste buds, when you read the menu breaking down the ingredients that go into the dish, believe me when I say you can taste every... More

Stayed over with friends midweek, it was the first time any of had been . Rooms are very good, with a mix of old wonky building with modern facilities, all spotlessly clean and well appointed. The six course tasting menu was brilliantly executed and each course was a delight. The front of house staff had the right mix of professionalism... More

Top notch and interesting food in a relaxed atmosphere. Wine was very reasonably priced and good value.

Each course was as perfectly prepared as during our last visit; the welcome as warm; the service as faultless. The only disappointing note was the removal of a course (one savoury course removed whilst two desserts retained) changing the balance of the meal and making the menu overly sweet. My proposal: reinstate the extra savoury course, reduce the size of... More

Visited The Checkers as a surprise getaway for my 30th birthday, and what an experience! We had the 6 course taster menu. The staff, service and food were excellent. I've never tasted food like it. I would definitely recommend a visit here. The venue is quaint but beautifully decorated, and the staff are nothing but professional and helpful; nothing is... More

We visited the Checkers for two nights, to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our room, named le Chataignier, was a good size with a large and very comfortable bed and a view over the town square. The ensuite wetroom was reached via a very low door, but we didn't bang our head once! Wifi was first class. I had asked for... More
