Four of us had lunch at the Chequers on a busy Saturday - the pub was largely full but tables were not being turned which made for a nice relaxing atmosphere. Everyone agreed that the guinea fowl (with excellent extra guinea fowl pie on the side!) was a winning dish, although the spiced cauliflower soup also deserves special mention. Starters... More

The service was... More

Visited late Sunday lunch and had nice roast dinner I WOULD SAY that they did run out of elements of the roast, like yorkshire puddings. I heard many tables being told of this ONLY when food delivered. SAYING THAT THE FOOD WAS GREAT AND SERVICE LOVELY

For main course my mother had the... More

Our food was delicious but that's. It what makes our experience memorable- the service was excellent - they knew of our food intolerances and accommodated us graciously and offered alternatives alerting us to dishes that would adversely affect us. Brilliant! In addition their wines list is well priced and offers many interesting options. Leave room for dessert as they were... More
