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!

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.

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.
