I stayed here 1 night for work, and although the room is fairly basic, the staff and food offered will have you coming back again and again. I am not a great Burger fan, but it was Burger night, so allowed myself to be persuaded by the chef, that I would not regret it. Absolutely superb, I enjoyed every morsel,... More

Stumbled upon the place whilst out for a country drive, glad we did not be swayed by the negative reviews on here. Its a small village pub that obviously relies on passing trade. We found the service and food to be excellent, despite arriving late on duriing lunchtime service. It was lovely and cosy with two roaring log burners. We... More

I don't know what's wrong with the landlords here. The food is excellent, the ambience is lovely in a big airy pub, but the wait for food is just ridiculous. 30 mins for staters, 30 mins for main course and 40 mins for the dessert. We asked for the dessert after 30 mins and we were told it was just... More

As usual in the area, word of mouth took us to the Chequers for Saturday lunch. Word was that the food and atmosphere were very good, but service was wanting. We went with a completely open mind. Talk about snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory! There is simply no service culture in this establishment so it became irrelevant... More

The Chequers is a charming old country pub. We booked for lunch and the food was very good with excellent friendly service. However: the bar and dining areas were cold, not just chilly but cold, and it had not warmed up when we left almost 2 hours later. A real shame, we were glad to get in the car to... More

Arrived to a wonderful cosy traditional country pub atmosphere. The welcome was warm and immediately made our party of four feel at home. The food is truly fantastic. Not too fussy but beautifully presented and so tasty. I had the best macaroni cheese I've ever tasted and my wife said her rib eye steak was a level above any she'd... More

Had to wait 40 minutes before our order was taken.Service was slow and the lunch was very average (I had the sausage casserole - plenty of content but questionable quality). We got presented with the bill before we asked for it as they wanted to close the pub. We've visited twice previously but won't be going again, based on this... More

We followed the brown signs from the main road, not really knowing where we would end up and were delighted with our find. There was a welcoming wood stove, adding to the cosy feel of the bar area.We both had game pie, which was full of meat and in a delicious gravy. My only criticism would be that the vegetables...

We were in the general area and selected this place based on other reviews, and were very glad we did. The food was excellent, Christmas menu with spicy vegetable soup which was really tasty and would have been more than enough for a light lunch, followed by turkey for me and game pie for partner. We never made it to... More
