Unbelievably brilliant food. Friend thought it was “better than Le Manoir”. How lucky are we to have such an establishment in the area? Love it and can’t wait to go back!

Just lovely as ever - best restaurant around for miles - ignore the odd bizarre comment from people about service or food quality - absolute tosh!

What a wonderful find. I only wish I lived closer so that I could visit regularly.
Wonderful food, attentive service and great atmosphere. I just wish I had been more hungry to have tried the tasting menu but couldn't fault anything we had.

This is just a fabulous place. The standard of food is truly outstanding. We are so happy that it is local to us. Their tasting menu is varied with delicious dishes of luxury ingredients, very reasonably priced for such a menu and such a standard of cuisine. Their Sunday lunches are same standard and remain so from opening to closing time, the roast beef is absolutely delicious.

As always Chequers did not disappoint, a warm welcome on arrival, great service and wonderful food. I had mentioned it was a birthday meal when booking and a card and chocolates were waiting on the table for my husband. Lovely evening.

Delicious food and good service.
Great level of detail with the food, but nothing over the top or elaborate – just highly accomplished cooking.
We'll be back!

Delicious food in a lovely setting as usual. We went for a birthday meal midweek and weren’t disappointed with the fantastic tasting menu and wine pairing.

One thing which let it down a bit this time was being forgotten between our granita being cleared away and our pudding/cheese being brought - after a 40min wait we finally had to ask the waitress what had happened! We were told they’d been waiting for us to finish our wine first but honestly I think they had a minor slip up and forgot about us - all the other courses were brought out promptly whether or not we’d finished the previous glass of wine (which is fine by me).

Nevertheless overall it was lovely, just a bit rushed at the end as our taxi had arrived and we had to shoot off.

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 .
