While serving classic french cuisine to a high standard this place fails to provide good value for money. The food is very rich and somewhat smothered in rich sauces - definitely ask for any sauce to be served on the side. The ambience is good, service was excellent, definitely a place to check the menu online before booking since food... More

We had a mid week break here which included the 6 course tasting menu and breakfast in the morning. The Checkers is a former coaching Inn that has been converted into a restaurant with 5 bedrooms The bedrooms are shabby chic in pastel colours and very comfortable, whilst the restaurant has a bar area with sofas and two dining rooms...

The Autumn Taster Menu and accompanying wine flight were superb. Subtle, interesting, enjoyable, well-matched wines with seven courses of fine food. All this doesn't come at discount prices, but If you are looking for something exceptionally good out in the Welsh countryside, you'll go a very long way to improve on this restaurant.

Four of us came here for dinner. The staff were extremely helpful from the moment we arrived. Drinks were served in the ante-room along with some delicious canapes. The cheese souffle as a starter was great, as were all the main courses. We drank some Austrian Pinot Noir which was very good and not overly-expensive. Excellent!

Our third visit already (a bi-annual affair it is becoming) and still very satisfied. We were recognized by the two sisters, our food was delicious, the wine was exquisite: well worth the visit. Prices are reasonable, the food is tasty (my beet and port soup was delicious), the decor is friendly and the service personal.

Visited with old University friends and weren't disappointed with food, service or accommodation. The restaurant feels intimate and the four of us ordered a wide range of courses and drinks without any issues. Well worth a M-star. The rooms are well furnished and homely. Montgomery is a small but charming hamlet.

We ate some very good food at this restaurant but we also ate some average meals. The highlights included the steak main course and the halibut main course. The rabbit on the specials list was cooked really well but was a bit daunting in appearance as basically it was a large plate of meat cooked in different ways. The vegetarian... More

Let me start by saying the service here is second to none! Friendly, efficient, excellent! It's welcoming and friendly!! Now from the second you sit down as you have entered and had your gin & tonic or what ever your tipple is (actually I adore gin and tonic with cucumber like I get it here instead of lemon) to the...
