The food was amazing, delicate flavours boldly put together. Great wine and choice of drinks. The service was impeccable, knowledge staff who were attentive but not intrusive. Can’t wait to be able to come back - stay safe in these difficult times

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.

A lovely place to eat as always - this is our 4th time here in the last couple of years. The menu was more fish oriented this time - which is bad for me - but the food I ordered was still lovely. Things were quiet though due to the Covid situation. I do hope this place and many others can survive...

The food and service were faultless and the Covid 19 measures taken were excellent, but with only three tables occupied it was a bit quiet and lacking in atmosphere

SO much more than just a pub! Food was excellent, all locally sourced and seasonal, reasonably priced and the service was professional and attentive. All food establishments should be operating at this standard. We had the a’la carte menu but I will definitely be returning to try the tasting menu soon! Can recommend to anyone who appreciates really good food.

Having dined at many a Michelin stared establishment, the food and service at the Chequers were on par with these esteemed restaurants. I am certain that one day soon they will also be recognised and have their own star.

Our first evening out with friends for several months and worth waiting for. We were going to have the tasting menu, but C19 early closing meant it was un-available. However all our dishes were first class and almost certainly, the best in the area by far.
Given the current restrictions, the restuarant did a very fine job, as did the wine cellar!
