The really friendly waiter made the experience more enjoyable. Good food, reasonable price and really nice playground for the kids. We'll be back.

The Chequers dealt with us very well, being a large group and having some extra numbers at the last minute. The beer garden and play equipment was perfect for all the children. We had a lovely celebration meal for the baptism of our daughter, and the venue served very well.

We hosted our wedding reception here and from the moment we showed interest until the day after the reception and our decorations were packed up for us in a box the staff were exceptional. Alan and the rest of the team were very easy to work with and I was very impressed with the quality of the food. Guests all loved it and an amazing day was had by all. We can't thank you enough!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Thank you to the chef and the waiter. Atmosphere scored 5 even though it was quiet because that's difficult without more people and you can't drag them in from the street! The waiter was pleasant, discrete and efficient and all four of us enjoyed our meals. We have visited you intermittently over the years and never been disappointed.

Always so accommodating with changes - last night for example last minute additions dealt with smoothly and menu requests not a problem. Really enjoy the atmosphere, food and service at The Chequers - never disappointed and always attentive service to ensure a great experience. Thank you do much for making Dad's 80th birthday very special.
