    Two of us had calves liver and it wasn’t right. The server was reluctant to report it to the chef but did and there was some excuse, the power was off or some such. The plates went back with the food still on but we still received a full charge. When we queried they took £10 off of the £42 for the two meals that hadn’t been eaten. We’ve been going to the Chequers for many years but won’t be going again; this is not the way to behave when your food was not good enough.

    Inexperienced staff unhelpful on this occasion. Spilt wine over guest with no apology. Forgot to display flowers on table specially requested. Forgot to hand out the days’ specials menu! Did not thank for my tip!! Reported above to manager who was most apologetic.

    We’ve always enjoyed eating at the chequers, however, this time we had to wait a long time before our drink order was taken, we ordered our food at the same time and asked for a jug of water, drinks took ages to come and once again had to ask for the water, starters arrived, had to ask for the water again. Had barely finished starters and the plates had not been cleared and they brought 1 main meal out, again had to ask for the water, it was another 10 minutes before the other 3 mains arrived, once again had to ask for the water, no one asked if we wanted any sauces or more drinks. Water arrived! I had the mussel’s which were gritty and in a flavourless sauce. The bavette steaks were good. Overall, based on previous much enjoyed visits, was very disappointed this time.

    Well above average gastropub. Menu somewhat limited and no fillet steak despite being on the menu. Always serves fish special on the bone. Drink prices astronomical

    Lovely pub, good service and tasty, reasonably priced food. Huge car park at the back and lots of outside seating. Try the olives for nibbles … stunning
