Had a lovely lunch here, lamb shank was delicious and my dining companion had the salmon, both meals amazing. First time here and would definitely recommend.

We had a great carvery dinner at the Chequers, large portions and really delicious. There was lots of staff available and the wait times were fine. We did not feel rushed even though they were really busy, everyone was really polite. Will visit again soon

The only criticism was that we were asked what we wanted to drink while we were just sitting down at our table to get settled. No time to think about it.
The rest of the meal and service was 5 star

Terrible service, waited an hour for service at carvery and had to remind them we were still waiting.
Waited 30 minutes for first drink, wasn’t asked again if we wanted another drink the whole time we were there.
Guy serving carvery was fantastic - very friendly

The food was delicious and piping hot my only complaint is that they did not have enough staff on duty and we had to ask a few times for condiments and our drinks but overall a great place to eat with excellent staff.

I had steak and ale pie really nice , my date had fish and triple cooked chips , he said the chips were dry and he left them .
My pudding was a caramelised banana and waffle, lovely . Date had apple crumble tart , he said it was ok but very small .
Coffee machine was not working but instead of letting us know when they took the order , we was just left sitting there until we asked where our coffees were .
Staff were nice but seemed as if no one knew who was serving who and it wasn’t busy .
The pub is lovely and we will go back as it may just have been an odd night as just after Christmas.

Food was great as normal

Food was lovely, great service, lots of staff. We sat in the conservatory and heating wasn’t working properly so was a bit chilly and we moved inside. But otherwise it’s a great place

Lovely pub, good service but unfortunately the food wasn’t up to scratch, roast potatoes were hard in inside, veg was burnt & beef which was only option available was way too bloody for our 11 yr old & myself. Yorkshires & gravy were nice though.

Great food and really nice atmosphere. Only thing I didn’t like is the desk staff announced Mr and Mrs Dopson arrived. I went with my friend. I’m not married. They should not assume we were married or make that announcement. I was not happy with that. I don’t use titles and found further very offensive. For that reason I would think twice about going again.
