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.
We go here regularly as great food, reasonable prices and lovely friendly staff. It’s always a great experience
usual lovely meal with friends, friendly and efficient service
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.
Enjoyed a Christmas 3 course meal with friends food was delicious service fabulous couldn’t fault anything thanks Guys
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 enjoyed our meal, the food was nicely cooked and presented. The waiting staff were very pleasant and the dining room clean and tidy.
Nice table booked at short notice. Good service and nice food.
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.
another great evening with friends - super food - in addition, fantastic value as we had great discount vouchers!
Fantastic service. Staff were really friendly and attentive. Food was prompt,hot and lovely.
another great evening - lovely food - great menu choices - love meeting with friends or family here - this last one with our grand daughter and partner who love the food
Lovely friendly staff and great food.
We regularly dine here and always have good food and service They have a new manager and let’s just say he needs lots of training but I’m sure Alan will soon sort him out
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.
You made our golden wedding special. Thank you.
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
