We went with friends just before Christmas and the meal was average not bad but not good value for money. But our friends wanted to try again for a meal for a group of us for their wedding Anniversary so we went today for lunch and this time we had 2 complaints the first was the beef for the roast...

Benjamin S, Manager at The Chequers, responded to this review

We are all very sorry to hear that your meal did not live up to your expectations and a number of valid points were raised. I agree the lamb shanks were not prepared to an appropriate standard. I have discussed this with the chef and steps have been taken to improve the cooking techniques for this dish. I also agree... More

We ate here on 24th Feb, have been a couple of times before and have never been disappointed about any aspect of each visit. Friday nights meal was amazing, absolutely everything about the food, drink and service is first class. Can't recommend this place enough. It's lovely & peaceful, not noisy & rowdy, just brilliant.

To Chequers for pre Christmas celebration with friends (their first visit) Appetisers were good but Mains very disappointing. The lamb was very fatty, roast potatoes lacked flavour, and the carrots/parsnips very under-cooked. Very small portion of Christmas pudding..with more sauce than anything else. Having been to the Chequers before for evening meals we were sooo disheartened. Over-priced for what was... More

This part of Lincolshire is blessed with several very good restaurants but The Chequers is on a different level altogether. Truly fine dining.. Beautifully prepared flavousome food, which compares well with some of the most highly rated restaurants in London. Service was impeccable and prices very reasonable. Not the easiest spot to find but clearly a lot of people are... More

To any recent convert to veganism, eating out can be a bit of a venture into the wild. With The Chequers, however, you're in safe hands. We notified them beforehand that we were vegan, and would have been quite happy with adapted versions of their existing dishes - we don't expect anything more. But on arrival we were presented with... More

We went as part of a group, and the choice of meals were ordered in advance. Firstly, the pub itself was very nice, tastefully renovated and with some character. The first impressions were very good in that respect. However, the food was a different story. As for my meal, it was really disappointing. It just proves that fancy descriptives on... More
