“Delicious food in lovely setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Visited on Sunday for Easter lunch and it was delicious. 3 course meal for reasonable amount, delicious food that was very filling! Had slight wait as one persons starter did not arrive with the rest and when it did turn up it was presented totally different to the others who had ordered the same, but he still said it was delicious!
Attended family wedding there last August too and was amazing day from start to finish with lovely food, great service and lovely grounds to relax in.

“food is out of this world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Visited as a pass through on a weekend to tattleshaw lakes on Friday 22nd at lunch time, found the pub through a dog friendly app on iphone.

We had our two border collies with us, and we sat in the bar next to the amazing log fire, we were made to feel very welcome, barman came over and said hello to the doggies, Order the fish and chips, and it was amazing! the best batter I have ever tasted, and the portion size was spot on. Credit to the chef and the waiter for the service, I wish we had a little amazing pub like this by us in Warwickshire. No wonder this place has such great reviews when you had the service and food we had.

“Great food & service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

We went for lunch recently, and had been previously a few times over the past couple of years and it has been consistent over all of this time.

Great food, freshly cooked to order and some nice guest ales and all at an affordable price. Great wine list as well if you want to spend a bit more.

The food covers what you would expect from a good quality pub/restaurant as well as some dishes that are more refined if that is what you want.

Service is always very good and you feel welcome and well looked after.

It is a bit off the beaten track, and the fact that it is usually busy at lunch and dinner with people making the choice to travel here probably says more about it than anything else I could say.

Well done The Chequers and keep up the good work!

“Wonderful food as always”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

Having stayed here quite a few times, the food is always top notch!! So much choice from a variety of menus/offers etc from simple pub classics to a la carte. We recently had a lovely 2 course meal and i wanted to review as my Braised Oxtail was one of the best meals i have ever had!! Compliments to the chef and the waitress who looked after us.... both obviously at the absolute top of their game!!!
Beware of the 'over efficient' barman though... has a tendency to 'rush' you at times and very anxious to get you sat down at your table without enjoying a drink from the wonderfully stocked bar beforehand!!

“Wonderful Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We were tempted by other reviews and rang for a table with less than an hour's notice on a busy Saturday evening they happily accommodated us in the bar area. What a bar area, Stone built, roaring fire and a personal favourite brew, Timothy Taylor Landlord. We found the pub classics were within budget and the haddock was simply divine.
