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!

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.

Although not unhappy with the service our waitress who we had NO problem with at all and was helpful and polite, did seem to have too much to do,

The food was lovely, as were the staff but it was disappointing that there was an event outside and large tables, bookings with low staff numbers. The bar had 2 rows of people waiting to be served when we arrived with only one member of staff serving. There was a long wait between starter and main meal. Overall it would have been lovely if there was either less people or more staff.

Wonderful food great atmosphere and Alan and his great staff make sure that you are well looked after. Excellent Sunday roast always of good quality. The Chequers in Houghton Conquest has a great family atmosphere too. All feel very welcome. I recommend it very highly.

My only complaint is that the food wasn't very hot it was just warm. The plates were cold, it's put me off from going again which is a shame as the food its self was really tasty.

Arrived for our 12.30 booking and finally left at 3.15! Service was very slow and long waits between courses. Alan appeared just as we were leaving and began to rush round to clear our table but didn't even acknowledge us with a "goodbye or hope you enjoyed your meals" We are regular visitors to the Chequers mainly for large family meals but continued to be disappointed as this is not the first time we have had a long wait for service.

It was a real shame that the pub was experiencing problems with their heating on a cold, snowy day; unfortunately none of the staff apologised for how cold it was in the pub, and no signs to warn diners upon entering. The food was good, and reasonably priced with a good choice. It would have been useful to have a drinks menu available on the table.

Pop in here every four months with a friend. Lovely staff, food and atmosphere. We are left to chat for hours and not made to feel uncomfortable. Nice to see its getting a fresh coat of paint.
