Despite the hardship of the last 2 years, The Chequers Inn has maintained its high standard. The food is exquisite, as good as Michelin star restaurants i have experienced. The selection of wines is excellent. The tasting menu is a treat for a special occasion. I cannot recommend it highly enough and feel privileged to live so near!!

This place is fantastic we had a three course lunch. I had ravioli to start and the beef fillet for main. The sauce on the fillet was heavenly and the beef beautifully tender. The service was spot on attentive and friendly but didn’t feel over bearing. I highly recommend, a real special occasion you will remember.

Each dish we tried was innovative and full of flavour. The service was attentive with being obtrusive. The waiters knowledge of the menu was great and shared their passion for the food too. I will definitely be returning when I can.

Staff attentive and friendly.
Food excellant - try the taster menu, it's Michelin star quality. The wine flight is very good accompaniment for the food.
Avoid the cheese board as it's not good value for money.
Overall its highly recommended.

We booked this fine dining pub as part of a trip to the Chilterns and to walk in Wendover woods and were very excited to try the food. Unfortunately we had a terrible welcome by the front of house, who told us that we could not sit in the main restaurant due to one of our guests shorts. I understand there is a dress code but the manner in which this was dealt with was obnoxious and rude. However luckily other waiters were looking after us and were lovely. The food was also delicious and the lunch menu is good value for high quality cooking. The wine list is extensive but very expensive - charging London prices in the middle of the countryside is a bit steep. Overall I would recommend the food but the service really needs improving.

This is one of those always to be remembered meals. A girl friend and I had the tasting menu and every course was absolutely delicious . The overall meal was surprisingly light and very balanced , free of the cream and foams which often spoil such menus. Very skilled cooking and friendly unobtrusive service (a quick description of what we were due to eat rather than the long recital you get at some restaurants)
My husband and I love The Chequers We drive up from London and sometimes meet friends from the Midlands there . We are never disappointed. My husband doesn’t eat fish so we have always the a la carte menu . When I mentioned this to the owner chef he instantly offered to arrange a meat tasting menu next team . This is typical of this restaurant- nothing is too much to ensure guests’ enjoyment of their evening out

Been maybe 8 or 9 times now for various special occasions over the past few years and I can't understand why they don't have a Michelin star. It's consistently brilliant and stands amongst 1/2 star restaurants.

Absolutely stunning in every respect. They are still providing a "second to none" experience despite the traumas of post-pandemic. How they are doing it, I don't know. But I thank them for giving us all a little respite from the difficulties of the last year and a half.

Good quality food, served well. We felt very well looked after by staff that were interested in what we wanted and eager to answer our questions.
A quiet restaurant with a nice atmosphere for a relaxed meal. Lovely patio area with vibrant hanging baskets. A decent selection of wines and some proper ales.
Not cheap but worth the money.

Very imaginative with incredible attention to detail. Top game eating without exploitative pricing. Excelent service in contemporary decor.

Definately worth a visit. Weather you want to dip your toe into the world of gastrominy, without shelling out a fortune or you just appreciate wonderly created food.

Well done to all involved, good show, you should be proud of yourselves.

We had lunch with friends. As always there was a warm welcome. The food was exceptional. We had the set lunch which is such good value. We tried one of the snacks beforehand. They are generously portioned. Then an amuse bouche and the three courses for which we all chose the same dishes arrived and were enjoyed by all.
