Fish and chips were of the highest quality as was my wife's steak sandwich. Not over priced so will definitely paying another visit. The waitress was very attentive very pleasant... More

Four of us stopped here for lunch last week; it's not really a pub, more of a restaurant with three huge bar stools. We ate in the 'bar' area (everyone there was eating...) and the food was excellent, fabulous fish and chips cooked in a crisp batter with tartare sauce and mushy pea puree...really nice. Service was good with orders... More

When we arrived we were instantly greeted and made welcome by the staff. The restaurant and bar are comfortable with a good relaxed atmosphere. The food was perfect for a... More

Having read previous good reviews and following a recommendation, we visited for a family lunch with high expectations. The dining area had more of a shabby chic restaurant feel to it than a pub and we were quickly shown to our table. Waitress service was friendly and the drinks arrived promptly. Unfortunately my glass of Merlot was undrinkable so I... More

Visited The Chequers on 8 December with friends and we were very impressed with the quality of the food and very attentive service. Restaurant is quite small so I would imagine it is best to book. Will definitely be returning.

This was a very pleasant surprise. The pub describes itself as a Gastro Pub but it is better than this and verges very firmly towards casual fine dining. Service can make or break a place and this was impeccable during our visit. Firstly, we turned up early but the Front Of House staff were very welcoming, sorting out an earlier... More
