The Chequers is a charming old country pub. We booked for lunch and the food was very good with excellent friendly service. However: the bar and dining areas were cold, not just chilly but cold, and it had not warmed up when we left almost 2 hours later. A real shame, we were glad to get in the car to... More

Arrived to a wonderful cosy traditional country pub atmosphere. The welcome was warm and immediately made our party of four feel at home. The food is truly fantastic. Not too fussy but beautifully presented and so tasty. I had the best macaroni cheese I've ever tasted and my wife said her rib eye steak was a level above any she'd... More

Had to wait 40 minutes before our order was taken.Service was slow and the lunch was very average (I had the sausage casserole - plenty of content but questionable quality). We got presented with the bill before we asked for it as they wanted to close the pub. We've visited twice previously but won't be going again, based on this... More

We followed the brown signs from the main road, not really knowing where we would end up and were delighted with our find. There was a welcoming wood stove, adding to the cosy feel of the bar area.We both had game pie, which was full of meat and in a delicious gravy. My only criticism would be that the vegetables...

We were in the general area and selected this place based on other reviews, and were very glad we did. The food was excellent, Christmas menu with spicy vegetable soup which was really tasty and would have been more than enough for a light lunch, followed by turkey for me and game pie for partner. We never made it to... More

Booked for a works Xmas get together but left feeling disappointed. Food was OK but service was yet again painfully slow. Almost 2 and a half hours for 10 people having 3 pre booked courses. Don't think we will be coming back as this is our second consecutive visit we have been left unattended. Disappointing.

A very warm welcome and super friendly and courteous staff. A great drink by the fire to start. Lovely food in a gorgeous old pub. Fresh ingredients and good portion size kept all 6 of us happy. Puddings were delicious too. Will definitely go again.

This place still really knows what it's doing....................... great food, ambience and value. Our waitress, Alice, was a super-star. Food took a little while to come out of the kitchen, but it wasn't a problem as it was well worth waiting for. Highly recommended.

The service was warm, welcoming and friendly and the food was excellent (Steak and Ale Pie and Venison Burger followed by apple crumble in our case). Bought an Artisan loaf on the way out too.
