Gorgeous Sunday dinner! Veg was perfectly cooked with bite, and the beef was so tender! We have 3 courses and they were all perfect
We attended a meal on Saturday night, our dinner waiter was fantastic, recommending dishes and engaging with banter on the table. The food was equally as fantastic, we shall be returning!
Great pub. Extremely friendly and really welcoming to our dog- she enjoyed a sausage gift. Excellent staff and service
It was my husband's birthday and we had a fantastic Sunday lunch. The food was delicious, loved all three courses and even though we were full we could leave any, it was so tasty. The staff were excellent very attentive but not intrusive. We can t wait to go back . Thankyou
Very enjoyable stay and no negatives .
Staff really lovely, welcoming and food was fantastic, really a lovely end to our holiday. Thank you
Great food and service. Interesting enough wine list. Definitely my favourite pub in the area.
Food and service was amazing
We booked a table expecting to be in the restaurant. However, we were seated in the front bar where we were joined by other parties with SIX large dogs. I do not want to eat my dinner surrounded by dogs which the waitress had to step over and around to serve us. Their owners gave no thought to other people eating food and the serving staff. I would not have booked a table if I had been informed that I would have to eat surrounded by Dogs. You said nothing about dogs and I think that your actions were disgraceful. I will not be eating in your establishment again.
Nice place. room was lovely, food was good but a bit over priced compared to other places
Great food, brilliant service, definitely recommend
easy to book online. Lovely food and excellent waitress
Everything ok but food prices bit expensive

Booked last minute and not disappointed. Lovely room. Food and staff good. Love the milk in a mini thermos rather than those awful plastic things
An excellent and friendly welcome, attentive and polite service and thoroughly enjoyable meal. Many thanks for looking after us on our wedding anniversary.
We also stayed at The Chequers Inn for the third time and it never disappoints. One of the best breakfast menus and choices we have ever experienced. Great location, fabulous walks.
Excellent facilities and loction
Tried to put us at worst table in half full dining room. Kitchen was very slow. Venison special was outstanding. Better at Lifeboat Inn
If you like good food and a relaxing weekend this is the place to stay.
Food great but drinks a bit pricey in comparison to other places we’ve stayed.
