Have dined here a few times and it is consistently good.

Very friendly welcome from Tina and her staff.
Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Nice selection of carefully prepared dishes.

It seems to cater for diners and locals alike who just pop in for a drink.

      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
