I thought it was a little pricey, was not offered an alternative when removing something from my meal. Other than those 2 points I very much enjoyed my time there and I shall be coming back for sure.

Booked Sunday lunch for my husband's 50th. Carvery was delicious, very well organised & safe, and atmosphere was really welcoming. My husband only mentioned his 50th in passing when one of the waitresses asked what we had been doing for the weekend and yet the staff put Happy birthday lights around the table, put a candle in his cheesecake and sang Happy Birthday to him! Was a really lovely touch and made our lunch even more special. Will definitely be back.

Really friendly helpful staff, smiles all around (although couldnt see them behhind the masks). Food was first rate and was served quickly. Ive been to th3 chequers a few times over the years and it is definitely one of my favourite restaurants to go to. Now under the corona conditions they still excel. Will always be going back as never had a bad meal or unfriendly service yet. Well done Chequers on the Green

The food was very nice! The local muscles were a bit dry but that's just my personal preference. The burgers are fantastic and I recommend it! The staff are friendly and attentive which is great and they take the Covid thing very seriously, having customers spread out and using a one way system around the pub.

All in all a very pleasant experience.

Food was delicious and the waiter even surprised us with his own mocktail concoction when we couldn’t decide on drinks. Friendly staff with a great atmosphere and lots of precautions in peace to make you feel covid-safe.

Our first visit to Chequers and found it very well managed according to COVID-19 restrictions.
All 3 of our main courses were delicious and served by friendly waiting staff. Desserts and cheese also very good.
We look forward to returning.

Lovely meal with family. Well planned out building with one way system and hand sanitiser/hand washing facilities available outside and in the restaurant. Food really good although was too late for the carvery but plenty of choice on the menu.
Went with 1 year old grand daughter - high chair provided very clean and several food options available.
Staff very friendly and on hand to serve at the table. Would go again.

The Chequers attracts a good-sized crowd these days, but it is a tad difficult to see why. Service is friendly and straightforward enough, the food is decently prepared with no frills and sensibly priced, but one cannot escape the feeling that this is a village pub not enjoying being a restaurant. Most eat outside on the roadside terrace (where a pizza service predominates), the inside being essentially gloomy, particularly while access to the bar is limited. Nothing particularly wrong with the experience, yet overall slightly underwhelming. PerM
