The food was simply outstanding. I can’t believe that this place isn’t Michelin starred (unless it is and I missed something??). Simply first class food, probably the best I have had for years.

Fabulous lunch in every way. It is such a pleasure to eat at this restaurant. Such a welcoming environment. The quality of the food is exceptional as well as extremely gluten free friendly. Booked for lunch another day on the way out. Feel very fortunate to live locally to The Chequers Inn.

Perfect food and the service was just enough to be attentive but not too intrusive. I’ve been eating here for years and it’s consistently amazing. I love this place for the calm atmosphere and the excellent food. It’s clearly run extremely well and just so lovely to see it open again. I’m thrilled for this little local treasure.

We were both annoyed that we hadn't been here before! The food was outstanding and the service not too far behind.

A great find and a restaurant that we will be visiting frequently in the future.

Everything about our lunch was lovely. Terrific service and excellent food - all under the Covid rules which were carried out well enough for them not to spoil our lunch. We’ve been here several times and always enjoy the experience.

Another exquisite meal from this fine dining establishment. In our experience The Chequers never disappoints.
As usual we opted for the wonderful tasting menu which was sublime , being prepared and presented by professionals who are passionate about their craft and take the time to explain each course.
We purchased gift vouchers at the end of our meal as a Christmas present and are confident that they will create new fans of this restaurant.
The dining out experience may not be quite the same in these strange times but this is one place where you can forget the outside world for a few hours, safe in the knowledge that you’re in for a culinary treat!
We wish everyone involved all the best for the future, you deserve every success.

Menu was very limited. Most dishes, were aimed at customers who loved meat.
Staff were nice but too in your face, felt like we were being rushed and watched over.
Very expensive for little amount.

Once again, The Chequers provided a superb meal. The menu is varied and every dish was excellent. We particularly appreciated the 'Snacks' option to serve as a lighter starter. A quality wine list, too, with a Kir Royale aperitif as good as I have ever tasted. Despite all of 2020's challenges, this restaurant is maintaining its very high standards. Thoroughly recommended.
