                                            Lovely spacious pub. However could improve drastically. The carvery was so dull and needed more taste. The roast potatoes were barely roasted and the Yorkshire puddings were not cooked for long enough and still doughy. Customer service was ok but felt a bit rushed and awkward. Staff members waiting to take your order as soon as you sit down. Also felt that they should of had more options and not just carvery on for those who don’t like roasts as their daily menu is pretty big

                                            we was sat right next to the buffett! we had our children with us whom for ) children all under 10 were really well behaved. the staff wasn't overaly friendly to be honest it was as if we was a nuisance! one waitress was pleasant enough but then seemed moody. i get that waitress jobs are tough but a smile doesn't hurt.

                                            Welcoming. Friendly, pleasant, efficient staff. Very nice food. Good overall cleanliness. However, the actual menus were in a poor condition and need to be re-laminated, cleaner to look at and to handle. In these days of Covid they need to be more aware of how customers feel about things like this. I took one star off because of this.

                                            We went here for an emergency birthday meal after I couldn’t book anywhere else. First time we have ever been and we found a genuine treasure! The food was delivered quickly and tasted SO GOOD! The staff were lovely and they even threw in a candle on the birthday boy’s dessert with a birthday song! (I wasn’t expecting it - such a lovely touch). I couldn’t fault our evening. I will be going again and recommending it to everyone.

                                            Used to go many years ago when the carvery was run by the old landlord before the chain of pubs took it over. It was fantastic then as it is now. So nice to add another great pub to the list for Sunday Roast. So rare to find a great roast in a pub. Not only excellent food but nice staff. Definitely a winning formula.

The welcome was friendly the service was attentive and the pub itself is lovely with lots of different rooms. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and love going to the Chequers on the Green.

                                            Lovely country pub offering home comforts and great food. Lovely open fire, welcoming comfy seating and great service when you walk in. Have visited this pub several times and just keep going back. Sunday carvery to die for a great selection of meat and veg and plenty of it. Good desert selection too. Lovely staff, and a great atmosphere. Always made to feel welcome

                                            Thank you all so much for the excellent meal and service that we received last night. We were celebrating ours fathers birthday and we all had a lovely time, the playing of happy birthday and pudding with candle really made his night.

                                            Had a lovely carvery today, great selection of meat and vegetables, cooked perfectly. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we were looked after the whole time we was there. We will definitely recommend the checkers on the green and will return soon.

                                            We had a very good hot tasty meal and drinks with family. The service was excellent and friendly. We will be back and try other delights off the menu. Booking online was really easy. A very pretty old pub with a nice view accross the village green. Good on site parking as well. All four of us had different meals and left not wanting more fully satisfied.

                                            The menus were a bit tatty and had that just wiped with a damp old cloth smell. The children at the next table were loud and our table felt it was a bit in the way…… But the food was first class! Best pub chips I have ever had! The beef in the burger was perfectly cooked and the 80s throwback curly fries my partner had were outstanding too. It’s more a restaurant than a pub, but with food this good, I can see why. Taking parents there next time just for the chips!

                                            Hi The service was very slow compared to last time. I had ask someone after quite a while if could place order. Very Covid Secure, while waiting for us to go, had use hand Sanitiser, only go in families . Food was lovely & lots meat can have.But the food could of been hotter. Not enough staff perhaps.

                                            One problem near the end, no one came over to ask if we wanted desserts. Then when we could get someone, they were a bit harsh in telling us that we had to order because there was only two minutes till the kitchen closed.

                                            My second visit here and will return, I had the Sunday Carvery which was amazing 😋 my friend had the steak pie and mash which he said was the best he’s eaten, lovely country pub and definitely recommend.

                                            We booked here for dinner after having a flight experience at the Headcorn Aerodrome. We were delighted with our choice after a long search online for somewhere to go. The service was fast and pleasant and the food was delicious and was amazed at our bill at the end. If we are ever in the area again we would definitely return.

                                            The food menu was very plain. Very expensive for a pub. Had lots of flies zooming around whilst eating. My starter of torteirs were stale.

                                            Our first visit to The Chequers on the Green and we were very impressed. We met some friends for lunch and received a very warm welcome - the team were helpful and accommodating of the dogs - even offering treats which went down very well. The food was excellent and we will definitely visit again. One to recommend to friends.

                                            Nice country pub. Lovely, friendly service. Food was average but menu was a little limited. A bottle of wine made our bill a bit expensive. We sat outside which had good covering in case it rained plus heaters if needed. The only downside was the outdoor area is by a very busy A road.
