    Mixed feelings about the food - my friend ordered the burger which arrived with a burnt bun and did not even include fries or salad which had to be ordered separately - literally just a burger on a wooden board. Not great value. Also few veggie options although they did offer to cook the fish in oil not beef dripping! Rest of food delicious and service was fast to begin with then waited for an hour to get attention to get the bill - not really an issue as we were happy chatting, but felt somewhat dismissed once finished eating.

    We have visited three times now and have experienced great service each time. The food is presented well and is excellent. Highly recommend the Sunday Roasts.

    Went for a birthday treat, we were seated promptly and looked after by a lovely woman.. no staff seemed to introduce themselves with their name.. starters arrived quickly and we were pleased with our food as always the scotch egg was amazing. Mains were disappointing… expected more for the price. But still flavoursome. Puddings took the longest. Not sure why as the place had quietened down after lunch service. As for birthday treat… other tables received a little something for the birthday person and we received nothing

    Thank you for your review. Its not part of our service to introduce ourselves because we are all part of the chequers team. I'm sorry the desserts took so long to come out I have spoken to the team in the kitchen to be quick and efficient on there checks. Every shift we check all notes to see if they are any birthday's. Cards are hand written and put on the tables. We pride ourselves on this personal touch. if it had been in the notes we would of made sure a card and birthday plate was given and even sang happy birthday. Kind Regards Jo Hession

    As always the food was lovely but please move your smoking area away as where we were sat near the kitchen every now and then we got a very strong smell of cigarette smoke which was very unpleasant

    All servers were friendly and nothing was too much, despite it being busy for a Wednesday the staff did not seem flustered or stressed. The food was amazing, and I had a birthday card for me as well which was a lovely touch.

    Great place and food tasty (although the cauliflower cheese was far too salty/mature tasting). Starter and main for two (no alcohol) as £80 so an expensive albeit tasty experience
