Minted lamb shepherds pie was huge and extremely tasty and my husband said his stake & kidney suet pudding was the best he's had. Definitely worth a try if your... More

We went to the Chequers Inn on Sunday after walking 5.5 miles round Bewl Water. What a friendly pub we got a warm welcome and the atmosphere was lovely, we had lunch which was amazing, and the bar staff were lovely. Would definitely return to this wonderful pub

We planned to eat lunch in Wadhurst but following a leisurely stroll in Lamberhurst we were tempted by the welcoming look of The Chequers Inn. Our gastronomic instincts served us well. As strangers to a small village Inn it can sometimes be daunting, but no such worries at The Chequers Inn. The staff were warm friendly and attentive. Although the... More

We ate here sitting in the garden . The starter was supposed to be mozzarella cheese with onion and tomatoes and it was not mozzarella-looked more like sliced Gouda. The satay chicken though was lovely. Main course of hake wrapped in Parma ham was ok. Good fish but over cooked Parma ham. we ordered sauté potatoes and they sent new... More

We dropped into The Chequers after a local walk on a sunny Friday lunchtime. The garden where we ate was lovely. Food was good and staff friendly. Just what you want from a traditional English pub.

We have eaten here a few times and can't fault the food. The Chequers Inn is a traditional country pub, no airs and graces, there are tables in the bar, a dining area and large garden with ample tables close to the river. Food is simple but ample in portions and well cooked and presented. I have to say their... More

Visited for lunch after a visit to nearby Scotney Castle. Food was very good typical pub food and excellent value.. It may have been an off day but the beer had all the hallmarks of being not very well kept unfortunately. We ate in the restaurant, but on another occasion would have stayed in the more atmospheric bar or the... More
