About The Chequers
We’re a family friendly, traditional pub and restaurant with a huge beer garden, heated terrace (great for those lazy summer days) and a variety of play areas for the little ones (giving you a well-deserved minute’s peace or two!) We’re situated just a stone’s throw from Ampthill, Bedford, and local villages, surrounded by the fields of Houghton Conquest.
As usual we had a great time - good company and great food - attentive, friendly staff, no hurry with anything
Thank you for a lovely Sunday roast!! Plenty on our plates and nicely cooked. It made a nice change for me not to do the cooking!!
A celebration of three family birthdays in one lunch time meal - 17 of us including 4 young children - was excellent. Staff were very friendly and helpful - and tolerant of the comings and goings of the children and those supervising them. The play areas in the garden gave the kids an afternoon's enjoyment alongside the meal.
Another lovely meal with friends - great welcome and friendly efficient service
I informed a member of staff that our table outside was dirty, rather than the lady just cleaning the table, I was given tissue and a cleaning spray (bearing in mind there were 2 of them just chatting and it wasn't busy at all!!)!! The restaurant and outside area was very dirty, causing lots of flies, bees/wasps. The toilets were disgusting, and the bin was overflowing with rubbish. We were there for a few hours and it just got worse. Such a shame as I have been several times and its been lovely, however i will now not be returning.
Fab place! Great customer service, lovely food, always a treat to come here!
Again lovely meal with friends - they had not eaten with you before and were very impressed so hopefully you gained more customers!
a top job as all ways. john.
Excellent food as always. Great atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. I'm sure I'll see you again in a few weeks!
Booked breakfast for 10.30 and were served our food at 11.30. Food as ever was excellent but an hours wait is not acceptable.
never has a bad meal there
Another excellent meal many thanks - and as the football was on we could enjoy a nice quiet belated Father's Day meal. Great service and excellent food.
A good venue for our late afternoon family meal, especially with three young children able to use the play area while waiting for food. We were able to sit in the Garden Room with a good view of the children playing. The menu has a good selection and everyone enjoyed their meal. One member of our party is gluten and dairy free and was very impressed with the choice that she had. The only slight criticism would be the speed of service. Although the staff were friendly, we got the impression that they were weary at the end of a busy afternoon! However, an ideal venue for a relaxed family meal.
Food really good on Father's day for the 12:00 sitting. Dad and hubby enjoyed the pub which was very good value for money. Friendly staff and they booked enough to deal with a busy day.
Very enjoyable. Food was excellent would definitely go back.
Quick and friendly service - amazing Halloumi and lovely to sit out in the garden on a sunny evening...
We dine here a lot as it’s great food at good prices. However last night was slightly disappointing. I am unsure if they were exceptionally busy during the day but the normal portion of chips/potatoes that come with our meals were tiny compared to normal. When I mentioned this to the waitress she agreed but did nothing about it.
Really lovely food. The service was great too! Looking forward to my next visit!
There were 9 in the group, most who had never been before and they were very impressed and said that they would eat here again.
Bland food. Poor value. Overpriced drinks
Lovely food and staff. Always use this Pub to catch up with a friend....usually spend five hours here and we are never felt unwelcome or should leave. Great atmosphere
The food was very enjoyable, and the staff very friendly
We had a great time, the service was just right, and the food delicious. The huge beer garden with playground was perfect for the children, so I'll definately be back to enjoy a Summer drink while the children have a play. A really good find!
Always a great place to eat!
The restaurant did really well to ensure that our party of 25 (for my fiance's birthday) ran smoothly. The food was really good too.
