Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

“The best bit of lamb I’ve ever had,” said my 95-year-old mother! We had a Sunday lunch to celebrate a normal birthday. We sat in the garden as it was such a glorious day. Perfect relaxed environment with good service.

Just had a fantastic sunday roast lamb, lamb falling apart, loads of well cooked veg and excellent mint sauce. They were very accommodating about my gluten free needs. Overall, exactly what I wanted and a real pleasure for a drop in experience.

Had not been since 2019 when it was very good, it had not changed and was still incredibly good. Unfortunately not a lot of atmosphere this time as not many people in the restaurant. However the food was excellent and the skin on chips amazing....The staff were friendly and helpful and the pub itself warm and welcoming. It is not cheap even the lunch menu is quite expensive but you get what you pay for and we both enjoyed itMore

Had a fantastic meal here last night. The food is excellent and so is the service. We have eaten here before on Valentine’s Day and it was just as good then too.

We were lucky enough to win a three-course meal here as part of the Worcester Foodies Guide advent calendar; we'd heard a lot about The Chequers and couldn't believe we were lucky enough to win! It was a brilliant experience from start to finish; the...atmosphere was relaxed but efficient, the staff were friendly and helpful but above all - the food was AMAZING! My husband said his main course of steak was the best steak he's had in this country and from him this is honestly a huge compliment! I had the pan-fried chicken breast, which was cooked beautifully; I'd wondered if it might be a bit dry or bland but this was 100% not the case. And the dauphinoise potatoes were absolutely delicious, they really complemented the whole dish. Our starters and desserts were similarly fantastic. We were pleasantly surprised by how busy it was on a weeknight - which surely shows we can't be the only ones to enjoy great food in a great surrounding. Would we go here again? Yes. At full price? Yes, unquestionably. Can't wait!!More

A business that couples a local vibe with a bistro food experience. I feel blessed to have them in our village. They always put customers first whether they are seasoned locals or newcomers. A fine, fine place. Huge thanks to Head Chef Damien, Ollie and...his amazing team for being my local.More

I went to the Chequers for early dinner on a Friday evening (17:45 hours). I was in fact seeing if the quality of the restaurant was suitable for a large family Golden wedding celebration meal later this year. As a lone diner, not all dressed...up and deliberately looking a little scruffy, I was also interested how this would impact on the reception and quality of service I received.....never judge a book by its cover! This visit was after I was told early last December that there was no Boxing Day menu, as such. When I asked if it was because they would make it up on the hoof, depending on what they had left in the fridges, freezers and cupboards, they did not deny it! On this, my first visit, I ordered a starter and a main course. I chose the main course of breast of chicken with dauphinoise potatoes as I particularly like dauphinoise potatoes for their decadent creamy consistency and au gratin topping. The amount of the plate of the main course was spartan. The potatoes I was served bore no resemblance to dauphinoise, instead it was a rather solid brick like structure with no cream in sight and as dry as a bone. I asked one of the waitresses to check that I had not misread the menu and also to ask the chef what the potato dish was supposed to be. The waitress came back and passed on rather embarrassingly, what I take it were the chefs comments, that "they are dauphinoise potatoes but the cream has been drained off"! I then asked to speak with the restaurant supervisor, who stated he had been a witness to the chefs response.....and that "they were cooked in cream but that we don't make them too creamy". It is obvious by looking at me that I was not born yesterday. Neither did I order a healthy dose of BS, as far as I recall. However, that is what I got. Obviously this restaurant is looking to cut corners to save money, when their pricing demands that they serve correctly cooked and generous fayre. Maybe there is a moratorium on creamy dishes at the Chequers. If the restaurant supervisor had been customer focussed and acknowledged the poor quality, with a decent dauphinoise potato dish or an appropriate discount off the main course, then I would have accepted that as a compromise. But no, he tried to blag his way out of it. This is the biggest red flag of all. How a restaurant deals with dissatisfied customers, to ensure they are properly acknowledged and their future custom is retained is the biggest indicator of quality customer service. That the Chequers doesn't seem to have responded to any other negative reviews is a indicator of their lack of ownership of a quality experience by all of their customers. The whole thing left a very bitter taste in the mouth. A bit of an own goal for the Chequers, methinks.More

Our second visit this year, and long overdue, as the first visit was so good. 7 of us this time. Superb atmos, and friendly, amenable staff. All of us had different main meals, and we needed to make a couple of alterations for dietary issues....These were dealt with, effortlessly. Timely service, without being pushy. It's just before Xmas, and they were busy - but we still had a great, great time. Delicious. Homemade pie and pork belly particularly good. Bravo, and thank you to the Chequers team - a top notch experience, and recommended unreservedly.More

The Sunday menu is really disappointing compared to the regular menu, I wasn't aware the normal menu was not available. Limited on options and some of the menu was not as printed for example the sausage roll was different and made with cranberry which was...different to the one printed. I chose the quiche as an alternative starter and this was tiny, hot in places and cold in some. The main lamb was barely warm and served on a bed of leeks not as advertised. The potatoes were hard and cold like they'd been left all day and the parsnips and carrots so hard I couldn't cut into them. The pigs in blankets were completely burnt. This is absolutely not the usual standard and my first review of Chequers which is poor. I'm a regular so even more annoyed as this was a total waste of money. Also in the bar was a group of rowdy men sat in the booth next to us and watching football on an iPad. Hardly the atmosphere for Sunday lunch.More

At £37 for a 7oz fillet steak you would expect a really good steak but we both had chewy tough steaks that were tasteless and cold in the middle. Obviously cooked straight from the fridge. The pork belly was very good but it was more...like a starter than a main. Very meagre. Water was in a fancy bottle but was at room temperature and all of the drinks were on the expensive side. The cheese board was ok but it should have been much better for £12.50. Poor to average food at rip off prices.More

Visited Chequers at Crowle 30th November for a family meal. the restaurant was very smart and had a nice feel also quiet enough to be able to have good conversation. We had been recomened to Chequers, and although we new it was fairly expensive, two...of the meals - the most expensive on menu - really let the evening down. Both fillet steaks were quite tough, although well cooked to medium rare didn't come anywhere near to a quality steak experience. Most expensive meal we've had for many years, (£37) so had high expectations. Can only say very disappointing. The other three meals were well received and enjoyed. SteveMore

If the real purpose of dining out is to make friends, then join a club. It's cheaper. Who gives a damn how "friendly" the staff are. They should be efficient and inconspicuous.
