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.
Excellent food choice and attentive service.
A great place to meet friends. Friendly professional staff, tasty food and drink, good value pub.
Had a lovely meal with great food and service 😀
Always a pleasure to eat here. I use the restaurant for business and pleasure, the staff are always friendly, the food always excellent. I've never had cause for complaint and never had a customer complaint either. Been going here for about 6 or 7 years now.
Had an excellent meal to celebrate our daughter's 50th birthday. She and all our family and friends were very impressed. Thank you.
Food was amazing but slightly disapointed there was not any dairy free ice cream for the little one dining with us and he disliked the strong tasting sorbet. Atmosphere was great but a large table close by were noisy and the children were running in and out banging doors.
Service was good and the food was good thank you
8 of us ate on Christmas Eve and the food and service were excellent.
Amazing Christmas dinner and such a fab atmosphere. We will definitely be booking again next year!!! Thank you! X
We had a family Christmas dinner on Boxing day here. The food was fantastic and service was friendly and nothing was too much trouble from any of the staff. We didn't feel rushed in anyway and would highly recommend this lovely pub / restaurant for a homemade, delicious meal for any occasion.
We enjoyed our visit good food drink and atmosphere but because we were on a late sitting felt rushed at end. My daughter was taken ill and even though she said she did not need care. She was really ill. No one offered her water and sadly just wanted us to go. Have been coming here for Christmas day for several years but felt disappointed with this visit.
Food and service was excellent friendly staff.we had a fantastic Christmas lunch.
Christmas Day 2019, wonderful meal, quality and quantity, I am gluten intolerant and they looked after me very well. We had a really great meal. Come here, you’ll love it!
I have dined at the Chequers several times the latest was way below expectations. Wrong food, sauce brought to the table as my guest had finished first course. My roast was only luke warm. I can only hope this was only a little blip for the Chequers
Xmas meal veg was very hard couldn't cut into parsnip. One Brussels sprout two tiny bits of carrot. Meat was dry and gravy very watery.
We had a booking for a large party of 30. It went very smoothly, all guests were happy with their meals and the service was brilliant. Thank you so much, we will definately be returning!
Great place to eat...as always!
Food was excellent and the service from our waitress was top class, we will be back
Staff were really lovely and very easy to talk to. This really made our evening very pleasant
Waitress was really good
Hi I came with work colleagues(11 in total) and most enjoyed either the 2/3 course Chrismtas meals. I had to ask for extra crackers too as not everyone had them Apart from a couple of colleagues that ordered Fish and Chips. However, one of my colleagues' fish had 'gone off'. She was disappointed and was quite looking forward to her meal. The barman did kindly offer a free dessert and was not charged for her meal and it was inedible. I hope that the chef was made aware of this. Many thanks
Food was delicious, couldn't fault it.
Please, please, please, get some more staff in the pub when you have a marquee function. Your staff are running around like headless chickens and doing the best they can but are letting down the regular diners...
Lovely food, great value. Staff were all very helpful and friendly.
Excellent food and service
