The staff were rude. I'm a terrible terrible cook but have prepared food that has tasted better than this muck that was served up. Really disappointing. I certainly would not recommend this establishment for food.

Came here as a last minute dinner out and we werent disappointed. Food was lovely and very filling. Nice variety to choose from off the meal also. Staff were also friendly and helpful. We were really impressed. Lovely to have a decent pub in the village again and look forward to our next trip.

We came here today for a late lunch, it was delicious. Staff friendly. Hubby and I had burgers, he had a beef one and I had minted lamb burger, it was really lovely. We will definitely go back.

A lovely friendly country pub serving delicious food prepared on the premises. My slow cooked beef short rib was cooked to perfection, it was melt in the mouth with a lovely deep, rich flavour. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a visit!

My daughter and myself decided to pop to the pub for a nice drink and lunch today (Friday 6th @ 12.45) as we are local. When we arrived at the bar and looked into the restaurant there was two tables with a group of around 15 people that's all. We waited at the bar to see if we could have... More

I had some drinks with a friend of mine and was really charmed by the atmosphere and the staff. With a huge fire place, great wine, two different bars and a great restaurant, The Chequers is a wonderful pub to go.

Had a lovely few drinks with some friends, however we were still chatting after last orders, so rather than asking us to leave like most pubs would, the bar staff simply switched all the lights off so we couldn't see a thing! We got up immediately to leave and asked if they could switch the lights back on so we... More

I have eaten in this Pub several times, and it never disappoints. The staff are always kind and courteous, and make your visit a pleasure.....Nothing is too much trouble. We both had the Scampi with chips and peas. They arrived piping hot, with lovely crisp chips.....We followed with the Sticky Toffee pudding, mine with cream, and hers with ice-cream....There is...
