“Simply Brilliant”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

If you are after a restaurant that will surpass all others in the area then The Chequers Inn is the one that you are looking for. A great atmosphere, fantastic food and drink and welcoming owners - it is a hidden gem! I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends and would have no hesitation in going back. Considering the quality of the food, this restaurant is not overly expensive and has a varied menu that would suit all tastes, in fact I could have eaten anything off the menu. Cannot wait for the next visit!

“consistently excellent”
Reviewed 13 August 2011

This place has been our favourite restaurant/gastro-pub for the last 8 months. The quality of the food is consistently excellent, the ingredients are carefully sourced and combined to deliver first-class dishes. Excellent wine list. Equally as important as the quality of the food are the hospitality and generosity of owners Ranka and Dritan, as well as their staff. A warm welcome is always assured, and chef Dritan is more than happy to discuss all matters foodie, and accommodate any special requests. True passion and care about "real" food are unfortunately all too rare in today's eating-out experience so sadly dominated by mass-market, quasi-franchised premises and their pre-prepared, ready-to-reheat menu choices. The success of a place like The Chequers demonstrates that quality and individuality can still prevail, and we should wholeheartedly suport their efforts to raise the gastronomic bar in the area.

“Our habitual pleasure................”
Reviewed 6 August 2011

This wonderfully charming, warm and friendly pub is a reflection of its owners Dritan and Ranka. Their team of experienced and professional staff are a credit to their high standards.

Regardless of whether a Bar Snack or an A La Cart meal is ordered the flavour, quality and standard of food is delicious. The daily specials offer variety and seasonal delights. The first-class selection and range of ales and wines are always served at their finest.

You only need to visit The Chequers Inn once for it to become a habitual pleasure..........

“A hidden gem.”
Reviewed 31 July 2011

We found the Chequers whilst out walking and had lunch there. We have returned on numerous occasions either as a couple or with friends.We have always been made to feel welcome, whether on a formal occasion or for a simple lunch. We dined there last night with friends. The restaurant was full, but the quality of food and service was as always first class. I strongly recommend it.

“The best wedding we have been to.”
Reviewed 18 July 2011

I have to take my hat off to Dritan and Ranka. My wife and myself were guests at Bob and Claires wedding. This was without doubt the best wedding we have been to. The food was second to none. Cooked to perfection, and served extremely efficiently by their waiting staff. The selection of wines was a credit to the menu. We have and would recommend this establishment to our friends and family. Carol and Vince McCullock.
