Now I am sure the previous landlord was absolutely fine, but I never visited during his or her tenure. The pub itself is over 400years old and is awash with exposed beams and feels like and is a really lovely old English pub. The new managers offer a really sincere and warm welcome, it felt like my local within minutes... More

A group of seven of us went to the Chequers for Sunday Lunch. New Landlords Phil and Rebecca made us very welcome. The starters were enjoyed by all and an excellent roast dinner was served. The gravy and cauliflower cheese were both gluten free, and very very tasty! It was a good sized meal, although I can't eat wheat the... More

A very nice village pub, with a good menu choice, at good prices, we've visited on a couple of occasions for lunch and found the owners to be very pleasant and helpful, our last visit was a few days ago and as it was a little chilly out it would have been nice to see the fire burning and maybe...

We ate here while staying locally. The pub is lovely inside, well kept and welcoming. Service was friendly and efficient. The menu isn't huge, but what they serve is good pub food, very nicely cooked (including the veg), really tasty, large portions and all served piping hot. Can recommend the sausage and mash, with local sausages from the village butchers,... More
