The staff, particularly the owner, were extremely unfriendly and the food was overpriced and uninspiring. The main room of the pub was very cosy and welcoming but we were shoved into a draughty and empty side room. Service was slow and charmless. Very disappointing.

Ok; it was Monday evening, so not the best night to order fish, but as it's clearly their speciality, my husband chose Cornish sole from the ‘specials’ board. It was rubbish!l Not fresh and overcooked, with a back taste. The squid starter was tough and cooked in old oil, served with limp salad and soggy powdery tomato. The chicken in my Ceasar salad tasted of the same old oil and had the mysterious back taste. We were seated in a poky corner table next to an open stable door on a freezing cold evening in an entirely empty restaurant. It was crap!

This pub is simply the best in Lymington....fabulous atmosphere, good unpretentious food and great beer. If you want somewhere to watch the rugby or grand prix, you can't get better that the Chequers.

No effort was made in my opinion from the kitchen on my last visit, having taken a group of girlfriends visiting the area to a pub I thought had a great reputation for food. Two ladies ordered ploughmans and I was appaulled at the contents of the plates, it was laughable and I was hugely embarrased. I won't be making that mistake again!
