Picked fladbury as a half way house meeting friends! It looks a little run down and uninteresting from the outside tucked away in a culdesac. But don’t be put of as inside the restaurant is fresh and clean - the food and service was excellent! Pipping hot seamed freshly cooked and tasty the risotto was perfect! Not to creamy or salty! My fellow dinners had steaks cooked to perfection they said and a pork belly meal was divine. Good sized portions. We would diffently return they have live music occasionally and looking forward to the asparagus evening that was advertised. If I had to criticise - it was the young children in and out of the bar and restaurant until quite late! that I found irritating and that they had run out of large bottles of prosecco!
Family Sunday Lunch; we could not get a table until 2:30 and it was still busy then. Three of us had roast which was average. My sister and I had Calf's Liver which was pink and excellent. My wife had steak which came with chips in one of those silly metal cans which was extremely hot as she found when she tried to tip them out.
i visited the chequers for dinner whilst visiting family in the area and let me say i was not disapointed an absouloutey exceptional pub cosy friendly country enviroment that serves very tasty food, the bar staff are always friendly and the chocolate brownie is world class.
We had booked in for Saturday night. Bar was very quiet, everything looked quite jaded. Having stowed our bags in the room we went elsewhere for dinner. My wife later revealed that the toilet in the en suite had not been flushed when we arrived (she had not wanted to make a fuss at the time) so we decided to find alternative accommodation. The young woman at the bar was reasonably apologetic and amenable when I returned for our bags. This could be a good place but it seems very unloved and is very overpriced.
Didn't start out well, the waitress wanted us to sit at a table before we looked at a menu, seemed put out when we pressed the point. We seemed to warm her up slightly with our drinks order. The food was really delicious, very much so, full marks to the kitchen. The owner came to check our food was ok, which it was, more than! It seemed we weren't alone in our treatment from this waitress, a couple on a nearby table weren't too happy either. So, it seems to me, owners of Chequers, you have winning food but that waitress needs to know how important her attitude is to a dining experience. I waitressed myself in the past, you need to always be upbeat, it's a great job if you like people (not just the locals) interact and make someone's meal more memorable!
Well what can I say, three couples booked one night to attend nearby wedding, shown to room by nice young woman, shocked when entered, four poster bed, and single put me up in room, black charity shop tv table covered in dust, no plug near kettle with poor tea and coffee, clean sheets but looking at the pillows on the awful put up bed very stained, the mattress was so old and lumpy, I couldn't sleep and made may back sore. Bathroom, the light pull was just a piece of string, no light bulb in mirror light, and very dated, toilet seat when lifted all peeling. No working light bulb beside bed so had to go over to door to switch light off, one curtain at patio door and the curtain pole was scruffy, balcony needed sweeping with lots of cobwebs on furniture, we checked out the…
Delightful pub in a lovely village convenient for Warwick, Evesham etc but reasonably priced. Welcoming, hard working, friendly hosts who were informative without being intrusive. Basic but comfortable and peaceful single room with en suite. Pleasant bar. Excellent breakfast. I was not in for dinner but the menu looked most tempting. I would definitely choose it again.
We live fairly locally and have been meaning to visit for some time. On our way home from shopping we thought we would look in. The power of wifi meant I was able to look things up as we approached the village, to confirm food was served. The online menu said that they were 'open all day!' which we took as a positive sign. When we arrived the restaurant appeared busy - an encouraging sign again - although the bar was v quiet. We waited for a few minutes, and when the young lady appeared at the bar (there were no visible staff on our arrival) she was unwelcoming (a polite label for what we experienced), and when we enquired about food we were told they were too busy and could not serve us at all!! There was no attempt to try to accommodate, so we left, hungry and with a firm view…
Whilst house hunting in Fladbury, my husband and I stopped for lunch at The Chequers. We had a very good lunch, and the service was excellent. My only suggestion is to empty the overflowing wall ash tray outside the front door, which is very off putting , especially for first impressions.
Stayed for 2 nights, first weekend in June. Very much an olde world pub, with a modern extension for the main restaurant and a couple of the rooms above. Our large room was in the original building. Very quiet,comfortable and well equipped. There was a good choice for breakfast, including full English that was excellent. The pub had a good sized bar and choice of beers, appeared very popular with locals, especially in the early evening. All of the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. A couple of niggles are all that stop me awarding 5 stars. On arrival we were given a basic room rather than the premium room we paid for, this was however quickly deal with when pointed out. Secondly one of the draws in the room was full of electrical wires and light bulbs, with a…
