It is a pleasant pub within walking distance of the centre. Very friendly staff and proper good pub! If you want a real pub, with good beer, and friendly people, this is the right place.

This pub is really nice on a cold winter night, as it has a lovely wood burner. Friendly staff and always somewhere to sit.

We popped in for a drink after a meal out as a couple. The place has a good atmosphere and feels friendly. I liked the good range of beers on offer and will be returning to sample some more.

The food is delicious, there's no doubt about that. Plenty of beers to choose from too. They also stock both my favourite lagers, San Miguel and Peroni. The Chequers is a fairly basic ordinary old pub / restaurant but is extremely popular. There's not a huge amount of room, but adequate. The Chequers is at the very south side of... More

We've had Sunday lunch at The Chequers and it's terrific, so I was really hoping that booking Christmas lunch there for me, my husband and mother would be a nice experience. Sadly, we were somewhat disappointed. At £50 for 3 courses, I expected more. The soup was very tasty but had the consistency of a sauce; my husband had bubble... More

This is a very friendly pub. I haven't eaten there so cannot comment on the food but the Guinness and the atmosphere were very good. The bare area is set up mainly for for food though so it has that slight downside and the décor had 'a job' done on it a few years ago so just bear that in... More

As always, without a doubt, The Chequers Beer House has the best Real Ales & Ciders on offer in Stevenage & i must compliment the pub on the range of beers & quality. However....the food was very disappointing. Standard chain style food, similar to Weatherspoons but at a much inflated price to imply it's at a higher standard than it... More

We have visited this pub restaurant on several family occasions in the past few years and I can honestly say we have never been disappointed with the food or the service. The restaurant is warm and atmospheric, it caters for a wide range of clients. The serving staff have always been fantastic. There is a wide range of food available... More
