Popped in with a friend for a quick pint and was very impressed. Staff are friendly and helpful and they serve a very good pint of Gem. I have walked past here many times but not gone in, think I will try it again soon...More

As always a delicious meal at The Chequers. We love it there for its cosy atmosphere and it’s dog friendly. Food is always great, but would love a little chocolate with my coffee as we hadn’t indulged with puddings.
