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 always good food and excellent service.
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.
We dined here for a family celebration. The food and service was good and the garden great for children.
another great evening here with friends - lovely food and friendly service
Very nice food, friendly staff.
Friendly pub, the food is always good and descent sized portions. Service is always good
Excellent food and great service from friendly staff.
Lovely evening x
Another lovely meal - this time from specials board - with my husband. Quiet night out. Excellent, friendly service.
Friendly welcoming staff. Lovely surroundings and delicious food. We were a party of 10 on a Sunday lunchtime so the restaurant was very busy. This did cause the waiting time between courses to be quite long. Most of us were happy to sit talking but an elderly member of our party found the wait too long. This will not put me off returning to The Chequers as overall it is a very good venue.
We dine out here regularly as it is always a great friendly pub with good food. Having said this the menu could do with up dating as it hasn't changed in the last year or more but you can't fault the meals themselves
Really good value. Got a 25% off main course voucher so decided to go and use it and had a great meal. Didn't even need a dessert!!!
Good value for money, staff excellent, a lovely evening, thank you
Fantastic meal, great portions 2nd meal in a week here...highly recommend

Excellent service, food arrived quickly, great food, would Definately visit again and recommend to friends and family
Booked a large family buffet and was very happy with the service, food and the welcome we received. Would recommend The Chequers for a relaxed, enjoyable dining experience and the kids were happy to with the lovely garden. Will definitely be returning .
A good night had by all, made to feel welcome by all staff
Very friendly and family pub. The food was very nice. Lots of gluten free options too which is brilliant for me.
Thete use to be a bigger selection on the menu. However what is on the menu now is very nice. The staff are very polite and the service was very good. A very enjoyable experience was had by the whole family.
Another very good meal for our family. Friendly atmosphere, clean surroundings, great dietary options, brilliant garden for the children, very good food and good value. Can’t really fault the place.
Our second time and definitely back again. Food is awesome. Very friendly service
Lovely food great gluten free choice which is so hard to find
As usual we had a great time - good company and great food - attentive, friendly staff, no hurry with anything
