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!

Our 4th lunchtime visit & have never been disappointed! We have only tried the lunchtime set menu as the choices have always sounded so inviting. Every dish we have eaten has been enjoyable & full of flavour. The staff are friendly & efficient. Food excellent value tho drinks can work out expensive. Will definitely be returning!

A tucked away country inn or a gastro-pub, well worth visting. The food is above average, they even have a vegan menu, the parking is ample and the ambience overall is pleasant. Our lunch-time service was a little erratic and on a slow side, but luckily we were not in a hurry. Wine list is excellent. Dishes are on a small side, but tasty.

Birthday meal
Greeted with a very warm welcome. Birthday chocolate with a birthday note already placed on the table. Waitress explained the different menu choice in detail. We went for the taster menu which consisted of 7 dishes and it was a great experience.
A lovely setting inside a combination of rustic and modern decor.
Staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
Thank you so much for making my birthday special.
Will definitely return with family and friends.
Well done and thank you!

I live locally & my only regret is that I wished I had Dined more regulary at the Chequers. The Portions were small but more than sufficient as we had enough Room to eat all 3 Courses on the Sunday Lunch ( Plus a Complimentary Celeriac Cold Broth). The Roast Beef was without doubt the best Beef I have ever eaten.the other Courses, Belly Pork & Coffee Brulee weren't far behind. The same goes with my Wife's Choices of Duck & Cheese. We was lucky that our Order was Taken by the Governor who Recommended 2 Excellent Bottles of Wine. The Waitress he served us was very Professional & Polite. It has a Unique Atmosphere & I would highly Recommend it. The Draught Beer, Rebellion IPA was Excellent & was served directly out of the Barrel.

We had a lovely lunch. We ate off the set menu which was good value . The quality of all our food was outstanding although the portions were slighlty on the small side. The little steamed suet pudding for starter was just delicious! All the staff were very pleasant and service good. The surroundings are really pleasant and well cared for...smart toilets etc. Nice crisp white napkins and tablecoths. All in all a good find and would certainly return and recommend to friends.
