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.
The food was very enjoyable, and the staff very friendly
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!
Always a great place to eat!
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,
As always an excellent meal with very attentive staff. Couldn't fault it.
Lovely meal as usual, great service, made a super evening with friends
Lovely food and staff. Didn’t have to wait too long for food.
Food choice excellent, but quality not as good as previously.
Last minute booking and hadn't been for a while - will definitely be back soon. Had forgotten what a lovely atmosphere it has.
Had a lovely evening. Very relaxed but good atmosphere. Food was attractively served and very tasty.
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.
We had a lovely meal. With the kids. Great service. With friendly people.
A decent pub grub experience
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.
Four of us went for Sunday Lunch, it was excellent all round. Nothing but praise for the service, the food, cost and general environment.
Always great food that’s reasonably priced. Friendly helpful staff. It’s a pleasure to dine there
Great new Spring menu - love the humus trio and glad you have kept the potato skins!
Been here twice now lovely place execellent food great service will diff be going again soon
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.
Fantastic meal again last night! Thank you!
Lovely new menu, attentive staff, forgot to get a clubcard! doh!!!
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.
