Since discovering this wonderful country pub we have returned many times, including Christmas Day. We will shortly be booking for my daughters 30th birthday as she has never been and I know will love it. The food is of fantastic quality and the portions are not too large, which is something we like as we prefer flavour over vast quantities. It is the one of the few restaurants we have been to where we consume the whole meal as the tastes and flavours are so delicious. The attention to detail is meticulous but not intrusive and the staff are polite, friendly and helpful. We are always assured of a warm welcome from the owners who always have time to chat and make recommendations. We are looking forward to many delicious meals at The Chequers in the future.

Lovely meal at The Chequers. We’ve been here a few times and always enjoyed it. The a la carte menu is definitely a fine dining one and the food was excellent, though we felt that the desserts could have been a little bit sweeter. Service was great and an incorrect main course order was handled very well by the boss and his staff. We'll definitely keep going there.

A lovely well-run fine dining restaurant. We had the mackerel and the King scallops for starters which were outstanding, we then shared the beef rib which was mostly very tender but there was quite a bit leftover which we didn't eat. But the chips and vegetables were great. I had the panna cotta which was absolutely wonderful with the blackberry sorbet and others bits and pieces. My husband had the cheeses and he wished there were larger portions of the them!! It was our anniversary and they kindly left us a small gift on our table which was very thoughtful.

Booked an early lunch to meet up with family on route elsewhere and we were really impressed. From the welcome, we were early as our journey took less time than expected and despite still being closed we were invited to come in and sit waiting for our guests. The service was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. The food was excellent, from amuse bouche to desert, each was delicous. My only regret was having to drive on and so unable to sample anything on the wine list!

Fantastic place we happened upon as we were working locally and thought we'd have a meal out while we were in the area. We would highly recommend The Chequers, in fact we are already considering re-booking with friends to bring along in the new year.

I was very disappointed
The starter was tasty but I have had foi gras
Many times but never served with out bread or toast I complained so eventually they bought a brioche which was completely unsuitable
The main course was duck
again very disappointed
It was quite tough and completely tasteless
Duck had a very distinctive taste it was impossible to know what it was
The rest was very nice

We had the seven course tasting menu. Every dish was well executed and superbly thought out. Everything was in harmony.
Started off with Jerusalem artichoke soup alongside Welsh rarebit brioche and pork and apple butter. A really good start which set the standard for what followed.
Local Hereford beef was lovely and then the two desserts showed real innovation and a deft touch. Sweet potato panna cotta was probably something I wouldn't have ordered but was brilliant and so was the chocolate , coffee dessert with Jerusalem artichoke ice cream. Desserts can sometimes be a restaurants Achilles heel, but not here. Absolutely top notch.
Cannot recommend highly enough. We are local but this place is well worth a trip, even out of London, dare I say!

A short but interesting menu. The food was well presented and tasty though there were one or two slight criticisms. The prices are a little above average. Tasting menus are on offer but we did not try them

First class food. Particularly enjoyed the chicken liver parfait, should have asked for some more brioche or bread to finish it with, but too busy listening to my companion.
Very attentive, but not intrusive, service.
Waiting in the bar area was a bit cold.
