We visited The Chequers for Sunday lunch with friends for a catch up. The staff were very friendly and polite. Good food, good company and value for money.
It was a dark night, a lilltle cold and rain in the air. We parked the car in the ample spaced car park in front of and around the back of The Chequres. We've been before but not for a long time. Once through the front door we walked straight into the bar area where there were a few customers at the bar with a member of staff behind it. With a broard smile she welcomed my wife and I to The Chequres and asked me what we would like to drink and whether we had booked a table, if so we could have a drink in the bar first and when we were ready she would show us to our table, (sorry I didn't get her name but she was wearing glasses). We booked an early evening meal so we asked to be shown to our table. Within a blink of an eye the staff member picked up two menus and swiftly walked us to The Snug and placed our menus on the table right by the lovely warm open fire. Once we were settled down, with our coats off, she asked if we wanted a drink. We asked her to give us a few minutes and without fartherado she returned we chose two large red wines at which she rattled off a number of Red Wines to which we chose the Merlot. Once the two glasses of Merlot was on our table we had chosen our meals. Another member of staff, with notebook in hand, she took our orders making sure she repeated the order to ensure all was correct before leaving for the kitchen. I had the Shortcrust Steak and Ale Pie (with mushrooms), hand cut chips and Green Beans, my wife chose the Homemade Burger and the trimmings. Not long after, our meals arrived with yet another member of staff, again with a broad smile on his face asking who had ordered the Burger etc. He too asked if my wife wanted anything with the Burger, K Up was her choice, it arrived in a suitable white pot. Finally, the pudding menu arrived, I ordered the Dark Chocolate pudding with a scoop of nutty icecream and my wife had the Lemon Tart with a scoop of Sorbet, within seconds got tucked in. Both courses were well cooked, presented and tasted just as one would have expected. A lovely experience in lovely surroundings with caring staff looking after all your wishes. We will be returning without a doubt. Thank You Steve and Sue.
Great choice of food and drinks on the menu. The food was really fresh and tasty. Service was quick and friendly. Will be going back
