“A nice meal - but they forgot the side order”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

I went here with a group, orders were taken and starters arrived. I had the tiger prawns which were lovely, but messy, as expected, no new napkin came although cutlery was readjusted if you ordered steak. Which was a shame as a few dirty napkins, obviously could not be used for the main we're strewn across the table and not collected with the plates. For main course I ordered the Salmon ( know it's a meat house, but it is on the menu) and it was delicious. It came with potatoes and as I don't eat potatoes I ordered a side order of 'roasted tomatoes', some sort of mini tomatoes on the vine I thought, Wrong. My tomatoes didn't materialise until I asked for them and then 2 large lukewarm tomatoes arrived. Obviously a quick microwave to make them warm, no roasting, no puckered or coloured skin. But at least they took out the stalk!! Although I had had a couple of 'yeh it's nice there' from friends, even though I'm local I won't be going back. Verdict - Nothing to write home about.

“Never Disappoints - Staff Superb - Steaks Best Available”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

We have eaten a number of times at Chequers for evening meals and must say that we will keep going back due to the excellent staff and quality food, what more can you ask for.
If you want good food served well you should be prepared to pay for it, this makes Chequers great value.

“Fantastic food, good service, great atmosphere...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

My third time at Chequers - this one was a birthday meal (my own) and a surprise party - well planned by my wife.

Seated in the bar for pre-dinner drinks good selection of beers & wines - then taken into a large table (past the butchers counter - more later), table was near the kitchen so a little warm, but other wise perfect.

Menu is a meat lovers delight (with options for veggies) - we had mixed platters for starters one with cooked meats (Borewors, Chicken wings, Small steaks and ribs) and one with Antipasti, Bread and Olives.

Mains were predominantly steaks - you can wander to the counter and select your steak direct from the joint - I had a rib-eye just shy of 400g, which was cooked perfectly and served with mash potato and a sauce. Others around me had smaller steaks, filet & sirloin, which all looked excellent.

Service was good throughout - with drinks regularly topped up and wine served chilled and well presented. A cake had been organised for me, and bought to the table with candles and a full restaurant signing along.

Excellent night out as always, will definitely be back.

“Night out here was disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Having previously enjoyed lunch here was really looking forward to a night out but left disappointed with the experience. I ordered a fillet steak and upgraded to a 12oz.....only to be totally shocked when the bill came that it was £50! Staff had not informed of the price at the time of ordering so please beware! This is the most expensive to date restaurant we have been to as a family of three. Also the staff were uninterested. On a plus they still have a great selection of ales/wine.
There are plenty more restaurants that offer value for money in Marlow. Won't be rushing back here.
