Went for a one-night stay and had 6 course taster menu but with our own wine selection. It was a wonderful experience and the food was just superb. Room was clean and well provisioned; staff extremely pleasant and the whole place has a good ambience, very pleased that they do not feel the need to play canned music when people... More

We attended The Frenchman & the Farmers Daughters book launch last night. All the dishes on our tasting menu were featured in the book, each course had a corresponding page number, so it was amazing to be able to read about the ingredients and the method of creating the food as you are eating it! All the courses were delicious... More

There was a good selection of teas and home made cookies and a fridge with milk in the room. We had a nine course taster menu and wine flight -... More

We went for a special occasion (our 20th wedding anniversary) and stayed overnight too. Our room was large and really nicely done, just what you'd expect for a classy "restaurant with rooms". The food is classic French and the clearly very talented chefs don't hold back on the cream or butter! In fact, that's probably my only (tiny) criticism of... More

The restaurant seats 20 to 30 and the 3 nearest couples to our table had driven :- A 200 miles from Hertford to eat there; B two and a half hours from Porthcawl ; and C all the way down... More

My wife and I dined here last night. I haven't been minded to put reviews on Tripadviser, but credit where credit due. We had the taster menu and I had the wine flight to accompany it. My wife's menu was tweaked as she is pescatarian. The room and service were excellent (including the source of curtain materials, and local auction... More

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
