Had lunch at The Chequers today. As always, the food was lovely and service great. Good value too, and portions very generous. Wine was good too!

Amazing pub with outstanding food and drink, personally recommended the nachos, chilli and burger. As it’s out of this world. Excellent customer service, and is always helpful with any customer queries and special requests.
