This pub has a well deserved reputation for great food. The evening menu provided for appetites both large and small. The wine list was excellent with a good selection of wines by the glass and by the bottle. The service was friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. I recommend booking for this.

We have visited this lovely establishment a few times over the past couple of years but had yet to have a Sunday roast. This was rectified today. What a meal. We chose pork belly. Fantastic meat, a wonderful supply of vegetables, great yorkshires and roast potatoes. Beautifully presented and seasoned. Please, trust this review and try it for yourselves. We... More

Located in a quiet backwater Georgian street but easily accessible from the city centre. Smart pub style interior and furnishings, relaxed atmosphere. Very good choice of food and wines. Friendly and helpful staff. You will probably need to book in advance as it seems very popular.

What a lovely Sunday lunch! They specifically made their vegetarian roast vegan for my partner and I have a lovely beef roast dinner. It is probably the best roast dinner we have both had so far. Great food, good atmosphere and would highly recommend.

We have dined hers a few times....its mainly the lack of parking that puts us off! We ordered crispy squid as a starter as one of us was having duck and that took 20 minutes to prepare and serve.But it didn't so we had the starter served with the mains but in their defence there was no charge made for...

I regularly go to The Chequers for Sunday roast. Once again the food is fantastic, as beautifully presented as it tastes!! The staff are fantastic and always offer great service - they truly deserve the awards they have won. I even had room for chocolate fondant desert which was amazing!! Already looking forward to my next visit.

Sunday roast at The Chequers is a must for visitors or residents like myself. It's a great plate of well-cooked food and a nice setting - with a good wine list. For Sunday roast booking is pretty much essential. The regular evening and lunch menu is impressive, too.

Great roast dinner and very popular! Would recommend lunch time or early evening visit as we visited at 7.30pm with the couples mixed roast just running out along with a few starters. However roast pork and chicken remained and was cooked lovely. Atmosphere was relaxed and warming after a busy day.
