“Amazing Food, Great Menu & Lovely Staff”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

What a lovely place to eat! We have been here many many times now and the food is always 1st class. Many restaurants are known for a certain set of dishes which you cannot help but go back again and again for the same dish. The duck salad and ribeye steak for me is the best I have had in the UK and we cannot help going back ordering it again.

I highly recommend the place for lunch or dinner. Winter months are fantastic with a lovely fire while enjoying a fine glass of wine!

“Go try it”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

From the outside you would have I idea that this old country pub looking place held a nice little restaurant. The food here was really good - much better than I was expecting from the look of the outside of the place. The desserts were fabulous concoctions of flavours and all the food was presented beautifully. Three of us all had different dishes over all three courses and not one of us was disappointed. We loved the fact that you could have something which felt like a real proper restaurant style meal or you had the option of pub favourites - burger, fish and chips etc. oh and don't miss the yummy but nut sqush lasagne

“Treat Yourself”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Being quite local, we've been regular visitors to the Chequers at Burcot for a couple of years now, and thought it was about time we gave them our feedback, which they thoroughly deserve. This is not your average pub or pub grub, but a quality restaurant offering first class fare and service at a reasonable price, and of course the twist on the black and white chequers with the furnishing. Maybe you couldn't afford to dine there every day, but for special occasions, or a superb Sunday roast you must pay them a visit. Many thanks to the whole team, John & Julie.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We stumbled upon this place by accident (needed the bathroom) and just nipped in for a drink. The staff were fantastic and the menu looked great so gave it a try. It was very very good, I would definitely recommend it.
