We had the most amazing food, beautiful flavours as a vegetarian that doesn’t eat fish either I would’ve liked maybe one other option for the main, but less said food , staff , ambience was first class.

Had a lovely meal, good service with helpful, knowledgeable staff in a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Only downside was the automatic adding of a “discretionary” 12% tip. With no option to add more or less.

The Chequers at Burcot has a fantastic atmosphere, it is warm and welcoming. The staff are excellent and their attention to detail creates an enjoyable and relaxed dining experience. The food was truly amazing and we will of course be going back again soon.

Lovely country pub feel with excellent food, service was with a smile and comfortable, relaxed environment. Restaurant prices (rather than pub prices) which matches the quality of the food so no issues, their is a good range of cheaper options (circa £15 per dish) and then the more expensive Steaks plus sides which are circa £30 - £35 per dish. So all options covered, highly recommended.

Very disappointed, food was average or below and staff not concerned enough to ask if everything was okay.

Food expensive, and not good value for money especially if the 12.5% discretionary service charge had been paid. Took two attempts to get one of the dishes served at a satisfactory temperature and even then the chicken was tough.

Lovely venue and food cooked to perfection. Welcoming and friendly staff but I think a little inexperienced: mistake with one food order, took a long time to order wine and one drink never arrived. Having said that, we will definitely return another day.

The food was good, though very over priced. £6 for 6 chips is beyond excessive. The service was ok but not attentive.

Sunday lunchtime was great, all 4 of us had something different to start and for main and there were no complaints about any of it! The quality of the ingredients and the skill of the chef really shine through. The only complaint I'd have is that we were waiting about 20-25 minutes to order dessert. The staff were plentiful but seemed to be pre-occupied with another table of people they knew. It won't stop me coming back though.

The service at The Chequers was friendly and professional and the food was good. We had three courses and can definitely recommend the rhubarb crumble; delicious! However, the pricing was a little on the expensive side. My partner had a rib-eye steak which was £22 with an additional £4.50 for chips, and £2.50 for sauce. However, the bowl of chips had 6 chips in (moderate in size but not worth £4.50!) and the sauce was small and again we felt like the price was a little steep for this. Overall we had a lovely experience and would recommend for a special occasion as it is truly a lovely place to dine, just be prepared to spend.

Lovely evening, relaxed atmosphere. The food was delicious, service really good. It was a little expensive as we only had some olives to share as a starter and one glass of wine each but we did have steak. Service was included in the price. We paid just over £50 each which includes a dessert and coffee.

Another lovely Sunday lunch at the Chequers. Service is always excellent and the food is the best around for a Sunday lunch. Not cheap but very good value considering. Extra roast potatoes and gravy - no problem. And they are so nice you will want more !

Our food was superb - one lamb roast and one chicken roast. The potatoes were to die for and the meat was plentiful. We both loved the parsnip curly crisps. My food allergies were dealt with in a reassuringly efficient matter of fact manner. I just had room for a pudding - an almond milk pudding with prunes which was very tasty. The service was excellent even though they were obviously very busy.

The waiter or chef forgot our starters so we were left waiting for 45 minutes for bread and olives.

Absolutely beautiful food . When you have a husband who judges when we eat out the cooking level to mine it's a fine balance. But this was everything I expected and it didn't disappoint. Finally we can eat out somewhere and know the food will be lovely and hes doesn't grumble lol thank you
