  •   I have been to this gastro pub a number of times. It does not cater for the elderly it is not expensive. The staff may change but this is because the owners offer employment to Mothers and meet their employment needs. Tell me where you...More

      We came here for a family get-together and a Sunday lunch for 11. Excellent food, atmosphere and service. Many thanks - especially to the landlady who looked after us. Will no doubt be back as a couple / large gathering.

  •   We had a big family crowd that was dealt with efficiently and very friendly. I wouldn't say food was exceptional; fish and chips only average, other menu selections were better. Still we all left the place happy and wouldn't mind coming back next time, on...More

      Had lunch at The Chequers today prior to a visit to Wimpole Hall. We were served great standard pub food by very helpful and attentive staff at a reasonable price. This is not Micheline Star or gourmet dining, just good honest pub food. We were...More

  •   I have been on a job close to orwell and the chequers is now "my local". However, it is unfortunately not your typical village pub. It puts itself out to be a "gastro" pub and if that means overcharging for meagre portions then the chequers...More

      Went for Sunday lunch, staff very friendly and attentive. The Sunday roast, unfortunately a let down - came away feeling hungry. No vegetarian option, they had run out - we were booked in for 12.15pm and not all deserts available. Very disappointed with the food....More
