The other reviewers have probably said enough about the perfectly delicious and original food. Who ever had beetroot meringue before? The amuse bouche are always a brilliant foretaste of the meal to come. We have now been 4 times and had the tasting menu the first time which was good but I now realise I would rather not do this...

Lovely restaurant in a nice country square, all the food was delicious, but the best was the pork belly which just melted in the mouth. The service was excellent. We will be back.

Our group of six were amongst the 'early' diners, arriving at 6.00pm. We shared a bottle of delicious champagne to accompany some very tasty amuse bouches. We were shown to our table in the back room, which could perhaps do with some pictures and other decorative touches to give a 'warmer' atmosphere. However the food and the service was immaculate...

I've eaten in some fancy places in my time but The Checkers has the best food I've ever had. It's high end French food served in a bistro style setting. This is a compliment rather than a criticism, since I'd much rather eat in this style than in a stuffy restaurant with highly starched table cloths and even more highly... More

Simply excellent food! Suitable for a special treat. This was our first time in a michelin star restaurant, and we were a bit nervous we'd feel out of place. However, the staff were a delight, the food terrific, and we had a wonderful evening. We had the 7 course taster menu, and a bottle of house wine. The bill was... More

We visited checkers in June 2015 for my 25th birthday with my close family. We had a wonderful time, prior to the meal we enjoyed canapés and champagne in the car and then thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu particularly the scallops and beef. We also had the matching wines which were an excellent accompaniment to the food. The plate of... More

A special lunch for a special birthday at Checkers proved to also be an exceptional culinary experience. From the melt in the mouth amuse bouches with pre lunch drinks it was clear that this was going to be something special. The scallops were cooked to perfection,the cheese soufflé light and full of flavour and the foie gras with a cherry... More
