What can one say, an excellent meal, fantastic service (thank you Adam) and extremely well priced. The Chequers at Rowhook is one of the best restaurants in Surrey/West Sussex - I highly recommend it. Sunday lunch is amazing.

Small but perfect menu which should please everyone. We started with Smoked Salmon which was delicious followed by Hake and Lamb which came perfectly cooked and beautifully presented
