Just a shame you cannot instantly notice it from the main road if you decide to drive through the British countryside. Place is small and cozy with a good size outdoor garden and decent car park size.

Just returned from a Saturday night meal. We had passed by several times and wondered whether the interior was as good as the exterior. The food was indeed very good but, although we could not book a table until 8:30, the restaurant was empty by 10pm. I was irritated by the way the staff were obviously trained to keep asking...

Escaped to this establishment to avoid disappointing food at the hotel we were staying at. There was a good menu and excellent staff. I would advise booking if possible, as the place is popular, but we turned up on spec and were looked after. Would eat here anytime if in the area.

It's really hard to score The Chequers average but then again scoring it very good wouldn't be fair either! I've scored this place as "good" as the location, ambience and staff were all really good! However.........the reason for my visit was to eat and I personally found the food ok, average and nothing special. I had the "special" of Duck... More

Popped in for lunch and we immediately welcomed and made to feel at home. The menu had a good selection of meals, snacks and sandwiches. I can recommend the steak bap which was delicious, and the chunky chips on the side were just as they should be (crisp on the outside with plenty of flavour, soft and moist on the... More

Arrived bang on opening time at 12 noon and received a warm welcome. Good start. Directed to a table in the bar ( we could have sat in the restaurant but opted not to ). Our drinks and menu arrived promptly with a smile. The menu is appetising with a good selection of dishes. As food is freshly cooked, bread... More

Had a lovely lunch and dinner here. Had to complain about the treacle tart being very hard and they took it off the bill and apologised so can't ask for more.

I spent a lovely evening with friends a Chequers. The atmosphere was nice, service was very good. Food was great, just the right size portions, served promptly and hot. Car park was busy but that shows it's popularity. Well worth a visit,

We have eaten in the Chequers several times, the meals are well presented and service is consistently good. Above average quality for mid range pricing.
