We stumbled across this pub before doing a long walk in the local area and were pleasantly surprised by the variety of the menu and the quality of the food. There is a wide range of dishes to choose from and I think there is pretty much something for everyone. There were so many things I wanted that I found... More

A country pub, with a warm welcome. A nice log fire and very good food at reasonable prices. Excellent for lunch or an evening meal but remember it is a pub and not a restraunt. We visit regularly.

Warm atmosphere; good welcome and good food on a cold day; I had phoned half an hour before to book a table. The pub was very busy but could fit us in. The vegetables were fresh and the best part of the meal.

No one at the bar when we arrived. Ordered ploughman's lunch and arrived on breadboards but looked like a child's buffet portion with very little to entice the taste buds. Cheese not served to cut appropriate pieces for one's self but end bits that you would find pineapple attached to. Salad, 3 bites if you were lucky, and gone. Small... More

We popped in following a recommendation. Appreciative of the fact that it was a week before Christmas, I called in advance to reserve a table (although I am told this is not always necessary) We arrived early, the venue was very busy, but our table had become free so we were seated promptly. The menu states home made food -... More

Sunday lunch time is of course very busy, but the staff at The Chequers were courteous and efficient. Not enough parking so had to park on the main road which was a shame. Main meals were as expected but all came out hot and freshly made. A poor choice for starters which put off some. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and... More

Myself and a friend met here for a catch up. We picked a very busy day, but we were seated and the staff were very patient when we took time ordering because we were chatting. I got the feeling that most of the people seated who were in groups were having a pre-Xmas catch up, and with a fire going,... More
