    Late Sunday dinner, excellent roast dinners, shame they ran out of crackling. Pie was awesome as well. Large portions and they came round halfway through with extra Yorkshire and gravy. Very welcoming staff, lots of chat and made you feel very welcome - also dog friendly

    I called ahead as my Uber cancelled and I was going to be late for the table. Staff were very accommodating. I ordered one of the specials, Mushroom and Celeriac wellington and it was delicious. My friend ordered the beef burger, with added bacon and fried onions rings. She enjoyed her meal but was a bit surprised to see the bacon was an additional £2 and the onion rings £3. We finished with coffee, that was sadly like-warm, but it tasted nice and was even made with oat milk. Will always go back as it’s a bit of a regular place to meet. Staff are always so nice and helpful and the food is generally very good too.

    The scrumpet was delicious and the pickled vegetables were sublime. The crispy goats cheese with figs and honey was also very good. The roast beef was perfect and a lovely extra touch was the extra roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and gravy offered to everyone in the room. Then the tarte tartin and marscapone cheesecake, both delicious. An absolutely delicious meal!

    Booked last minute so accepted a table in the bar area as restaurant was full. Disappointed that all ordering had to be done at the bar (or on app) and paid for at the time (no tab facility). Staff member took an age to log our order into the system and in the end my starter order was incorrect Food was acceptable although the chicken schnitzel was very greasy.

    I was very disappointed with how cold the pub was. The door was open to the pub and it made it very chilly inside. I really feel the menu now needs to be updated. I know there are specials but the specials don't seem to vary that much either. I have been a loyal customer here for several months now and I've been coming here every Friday. In the last few weeks I really noticed a difference in this pub I'm sorry to say.

    Food was outstanding. Service was a little slow, and felt forgotten about at times. Considering the restaurant was not busy for a Sunday afternoon. A little more attentiveness would have been key. We had various servers over the course of two hours, and had to request some items more than once before they arrived, with one drink at the end of the meal taking 15mins. Location and cleanliness were also very good. We will be returning with the hope that the servers can bring back a warmer invitation. Rather just a fast food restaurant approach of serve and leave....

    The ChequersResponded on 14 July 2021

    Thank you very much for your feedback Marie143. We're so pleased to hear the food was outstanding and you enjoyed our lovely location. However we are saddened to hear the service was a little slow. In this moment, all feedback is extremely important, we will discuss the team approach as well as the speed of service, I’m sorry we fell short on your visit on our usual standards. We do hope to welcome you back soon and demonstrate to you our true standards that we are so proud of. Thanks again.

    Very disappointed to use the app which didn't actually work had to manually order in the end which is what I wanted to do in the first place. Happy to use an app that works but very frustrating when an app doesn't work. Wasn't told the specials tonight. Otherwise the food was good.

    Had a table outside under the sail, fairly busy on a Thursday night but atmosphere was very nice. Tables well spaced comfortable seating, cushions and blankets if you want them. Staff very attentive and helpful with any questions. All food was to a very high standard and well presented, from the soup of the day and a perfectly cooked steak finished off with great puddings. Would certainly recommend a visit to enjoy great service and food we will certainly be going back.
