Really enjoyed the laid back vibe in this pub. The prices are reasonable and our waitress was attentive without being overbearing. This was our first visit but highly unlikely to be our last!

Not been to the chequers for a long while. The booking system is easy to use. Meal is the best I’ve had in a long time so well done to the chef! We had fillet steak and chocolate brownie for dessert. Steak was cooked to perfection. I personally would have liked a little bit of greenery on the plate eg salad leaves etc to make it look less bland. Otherwise it was delicious. The brownie was the best I’ve tasted. Will book again

Everything was good. The only problem I had was on the app I wasn’t aware you had to select the gin and then the dash of tonic separately when you ordered. It would be easier if it had a note on there telling you that or if it allowed you to add it on whenever you chose gin. However, despite this everything was lovely and the food and drinks were very nice.

All great the staff are managing the CV19 changes well, booking required for drinks and meals, all table service, orders via app, and payment by pre paid card, or card reader at table or cash. Food excellent as always, and service great even at busy times. Social distancing observed. Other pubs could learn from this excellent example of managing the current restrictions whilst still offering a pub experience.

We had the mini lunches fish&chips and I think the quality suffered because of the small portions. We enjoyed our meal though. We were given full attention by the serving staff. Lovely coffees. We will come again.

A really good dining out experience, the only tiny downside was we had not realised that the pub closes at 9pm, so wouldn't come earlier had we realised

A lovely old pub in a charming location. Good choice of pub grub. If you choose the chicken fajitas you will need to have a very big appetite. Friendly staff.

Really lovely evening all round with just one exception. There were a lot of fruit flies at the window and around us. It would have been great if it could have been sprayed prior to us being seated as they become rather irritating. Otherwise food, drink, service and company were great.

A good and thankfully old style pub with lovely garden in a quite wonderful setting. A little disappointed with the chosen food but staff and service were excellent.

Great food, brilliant service and good value, highly recommended. We ask for a couple of change to the kids menu, it was all done perfectly. We'll definitely be back!
