We visited here with visitors from Germany who were keen to try the fish and chips. Fish was great, chips were OK, but the mushy peas were a brilliant green, which was bit off putting. However, our visitors liked it, so that was the most important.
Beers were fine.

Visited the pub for a Friday night relaxed meal out. The food was nice nothing amazing but nice for a simple pub meal, however the service was non-existent. the sauces we asked for during our meal never arrived. We then sat and waited for the desert menu that was offered by the waitress only for us to give up after 20 minutes. I wouldn't mind but there was only 1 other table in the restaurant and 2 waitresses not exactly run of their feet!

Such a shame a lovely pub in a great village but NO community atmosphere....
We have attended this pub on more than one occasion for lunch or just drinks.
The food arrived late & cold and slow to serve drinks at other times..
I will not be returning at any point and also telling friends about our experience...

There are other community pubs in Stotfold like the "STAG" that make you feel welcomed!!!

Hi "No community spirit"

As the owner of the Chequers we take feedback of our pub very seriously. Reading your review however gives me no detail of your visit to identify the mistakes you feel we have made. As you can see our previous reviews are very positive and I find it quite strange that a review as harsh as yours has appeared and yet no-one has given any such feedback to myself or any members of staff.

Not only that you give no description of this apparent lack of community spirit despite the fact this year we have raised well over £1000 for local charities.

Should you wish to discuss your visit in more detail please contact me on 01462 735 465.

Can't win them all eh!

Kind regards

We had friends staying for the weekend and decided to try the Sunday Roast... All I can say is 'Excellent!' The meal was extremely tasty and generous in its quantity. The service was good and staff polite and friendly. We will definitely be going back for seconds!! Keep up the good work guys.

The food at this place used to be beyond awful, however I had heard good things since the new owners came in so decided to give it a try last night. I was really pleased as stotfold needs somewhere that can do pub food well, and I can now say it does. Finally!!! Good simple pub food - I hope good word spreads as the staff were really nice also so I hope they make it a success.
