Wee have eaten at The Chequers Inn a few times as the quality of the food is outstanding. The only complaint I have is the dessert choices. Every time I have eaten there I have struggled to find something from the dessert menu. On this last visit neither my husband nor myself had a dessert. I think they could do with something a little less fancy. Overall we will return again.

I booked for a relative’s 75th and she was given a card and chocolate which was a lovely touch. Sadly I was ill and couldn’t attend but my husband and daughter went too and all three said the meal was fantastic. Every course without exception was excellent. I believe it was a little pricey for a lunch (only 1 drink between them) and was £170 - but all had starter, main and dessert so I would expect a decent place to be in that range. We will DEFINITELY be back so that I can come too! Well done everyone, it received rave reviews from all.

I would recommend but I think the portions although very very tasty were very small especially the hake starter , just two mouthfuls . The beef was amazing and I had the best pomme Anna I’ve ever had .

Amazing medium rare steak and accompanying potato’s cooked in fat. Wine selections are very good and for fine dining the prices are reasonable. It’s not pile it high or sell it overly cheap and the quality is immense. We had a faultless experience without feeling terribly unhealthy, greedy or disappointed.

An outstanding dining experience - the food and service was first class. Can't wait to repeat the experience - I think this is a gem of a place and almost a well kept secret...worried the more people learn just how amazing this place is the harder it will be to get a table. It really was first class!

We dined at the chequersthis week and enjoyed the experience. The chequers is a lovely old pub/restaurant.
We were the only ones in the dining room to start with but that was fine, the music was very pleasant. We had the tasting menu which was pretty good, but maybe some courses just lacking in that special something?
The treacle bread, gazpacho and pork and apple butter was special and the hake with strawberries delicious.
Overall a nice dining experience at a reasonable cost.

I took my friend there for her birthday and she was given a small box of home made chocolates.
We had the set lunch menu and it was absolutely delicious , especially the lamb starter.
I think it is very good value and the staff could not be friendlier. Highly recommended.

Almost perfect, but everything just slowed down just a little too much after the main course, perhaps because it got a bit busier. Only a tiny observation that didn’t really affect anything but otherwise perfect. Thank you.

We had the 7 course tasting menu with the wine pairing which is unusual for us but having been here a few times before we expected it to be good
It was absolutely exceptional ...... one of the best food experiences we have ever had and we have been to some special places
Totally worthy of a Michelin Star in our view
Thank you to the Chequers Team for a very special experience

This restaurant has deservedly attained it's 2nd AA rosette last week. As far as the the food is concerned UI think it deserves a Michelin star! I am proud that it is such a great local restaurant. It is worth travelling to for a celebratory meal, it has great vegetarian options, even a vegan tasting menu, all dishes are delicious and the Sunday lunch is the very best I have ever had! The wine list is excellent. The staff are friendly, helpful and very efficient. It is one of Buckinghamshire's gems!
