I have eaten here many times and always find the food and service excellent. I recently visited as part of a group of 16 for one of the Christmas party nights. The staff could not have been more helpful, the food was amazing, great disco and a relaxed and festive atmosphere. All in all brilliant value. Thanks to all involved!

Sadly not our best experience; slow service & over cooked vegetables (no texture left at all). We have eaten at lunchtime frequently over the years, we will stick to lunchtime in future as last night was disappointing. The serving staff are lovely, but there were not enough of them.

Lovely place with great staff and excellent food. Even better in the summer when you can enjoy the garden.

Two of the three couples in our party travelled over 60 miles to meet at the Chequers, and you showed great understanding of our needs. A lovely occasion, with excellent food - thank you!

We were staying at Center Parcs and wanted a nice area for a walk and lunch to celebrate my birthday with the family. A fantastic choice, with a lovely walk to Houghton House and the pub was amazing; friendly staff, fantastic home cooked food, and no pressure whatsoever , so we had time to relax and enjoy our family time. Highly recommend.

Food very simple and defrosted. Staff totally awesome. It's a bit too bright which is not conducive to staying after the eating is finished My evening was spoilt by kids running around in and out. Leaving the door open and making the room freezing

We haven't visited The Chequers for sometime, and were really impressed with the service, food and atmosphere. One of our party was delayed but there was no problem in waiting before we ordered, and nothing was too much trouble. Special thanks to the Australian (or New Zealand)? staff member who looked after us.

The food was excellent and the staff were very attentive and friendly. However, the service was slow due to lots of larger parties dining mid week and not enough staff.

Last minute booking 5.00 on a Sunday, so quiet between lunch and evening rush. We had the steak pie chips and gravy, hit the spot after a day decorating!! Friendly staff, great service. Have stopped here for meals before and have never had a complaint.

We had a lovely meal for a family birthday, thank you for allowing us to bring our reservation forward at short notice, and we apologise for not paying out bar bill! We were having such a lovely time chatting, we just forgot! (It was Mum’s fault confusing matters, but all was well when she paid later over the phone) My chicken with leek and blue cheese sauce was delicious but I would have preferred vegetables rather than salad but I should have checked first, we were too full for pudding which was a shame. Will definitely come again when we are down that way.
