“Excellent fish, but soggy chips!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Good service, good value. Always busy, so obviously popular. This is the nearest fish and chip shop to where we normally stay on visits to England. The fish was excellent, nicely cooked, crispy batter. The chips, unfortunately were not so good, as we found them to be soggy. Can't comment on anything else on the menu. As we have only tried the fish and chips.

“Nothing compared to marino's bearsted!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

I was recommended this chippy who told me they were relatives of the famous marino's in bearsted! What a joke! The tall slim man was rude and spoke to his staff like rubbish, the food and service were... Forgettable and frankly I won't be goin back!

“Impromptu food stop”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

After out walking all afternoon we stopped here initially for ice cream but once inside changed for something more meaty! I had 1/4 pounder with cheese and it was delicious. Chips were also lovely. Great value for money, friendly staff. You can either sit in or outside on picnic benches enjoying the food and surrounding. Will visit again

“Best Fish & Chips for ages”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

This is the second time we have visited the village of Lenham, Nr Maidstone. Today we had lunch at the Chequers Fish Bar. Although only small the owner and staff were very welcoming in deed and the fish and chips were superb. My wife thought the grilled haddock was one of the best she had ever had. Likewise with my cod and chips. Needless to say the next time we are in the area this will be the place to eat. We have a couple of good fish and chip shops in Hythe where will live but they are not a patch on The Chequers. Brilliant place to eat.

“Excellent Fish & Chips”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Excellent fish & chips - always busy in the evening which is a good sign of quality and value for money. Efficient service - overseen by Maz who runs a good ship and is always friendly and welcoming.
