Lovely quiet pub with a village charm. There is plenty of space between tables. The staff are friendly but discreet. The food is delicious. I would certainly recommend the pub for adults; children would need to be very well-behaved!

Having eaten here on a number occasions over the last few months I have never been disappointed. The food choice is excellent as is the presentation. The layout of the restaurant provides ample space between tables and the service cannot be faulted.

This is not your friendly local village pub. It aspires to be fine-dining but just misses the mark. The food was not anything special and quite pricey at that. The plates were big and portions small. Disappointing after a 100 mile journey to get there for lunch which was not as good as hoped for.

A little gem of a find. Michelin level food and service but relaxed atmosphere and fabulous staff who take absolute pride in all they do. A wonderful team from kitchen through to front of house who create the most wonderful food and service experience. This place deserves a Michelin star. Why have they not got one?!

The food was undoubtedly excellent, however, I only gave *** as the portions were very small - not a place to go if you are hungry. The menu was certainly original and it was very good to experience some unusual food combinations - jerausalem and fennel ice cream, for example. However, the food seemed unnecessarily over complicated and quite incongruous in a village pub where it didn’t match the ambience and setting. Food presentation was good, the staff were friendly and the service excellent but overall it represented poor value for money and we came away feeling as though we needed a bit more food!

Fantastic meal with very attentive waiting staff and greeted by the owners who went out of their way accommodating a disabled pensioner and making the dining experience comfortable for her. Food was excellent, carrots just too crunchy on this occasion but will definitely be returning. A gem of a find that’s nice and quiet for adults dining

Excellent quality and choice on the Sunday lunch menu. A gem of a location too - quiet village lane - with plenty of parking. Great wine list - with good choices for single glasses and half bottles. One star deducted for price - the two and three course set lunch menu options were more expensive than venues such as Marcus Wareing in central London.

We had the 7 course tasting menu and it was amazing. All the ingredients were of a high quality and cooked perfectly. We have eaten in many high end restaurants and had their tasting menus and this is on a par with them but at a fraction of the cost. We will definitely be returning.

Fab trip to the chequers. Have not been there for ages, but glad that we went for our anniversary. We had the tasting menu and the accompanying wine. It’s was really really good and given the quality and seven courses, the price was good also. Very impressed.

Went here to meet a friend to talk and ended up choosing the tasting menu. It was splendid. Unfortunately a table opposite was v noisy with a six year old understandably getting bored and the parents doing very little to stop her squealing. The staff handled the situation gracefully.

We enjoyed every course of the seven course tasting menu! Each was delicious, creative and beautifully presented. My husband had the flight of wines to accompany the meal. The service could not be faulted and they gave us a small box of birthday chocolates. The ambience was perfect and the inn is attractive with its wooden beams. We have had quite a few tasting menus and this was one of the best. A memorable meal and evening which was also good value.

I always enjoy dining at The Chequers. The food is always of a very high standard and beautifully presented. This lunch was a treat from my sister-in-law for my birthday and it was a lovely surprise to find a little box of chocolates and a card on our table from the staff - excellent chocolates and a lovely touch.

I shall be back again very soon.

This restaurant gives a new meaning to "chequered history" in that I don't know what its overall history is but certainly its recent history can be nothing but good. The friendly, charming and attentive ex-Croatian proprietors know exactly how to look after their customers and their taster menu is straight of the top shelf. Add the attractive décor and you have a gem of a place !
