Chequer's Poaka Beck restaurant sets a new low. Terrible disjointed uncaring front-of-house service. Boiled meat, packet gravy, microwaved veg. Such a wretched looking plate that I almost sent it back untouched. I wish I had! The awful back-of-house hygiene means it came with an extra portion of food poisoning for both of us. Our common assessment - arrived at completely... More

Have visited once before previously and had the Chateaubriand recommended so my husband and I booked specifically to try it. We were not disappointed, a superbly cooked piece of meat which was one of the best meals I have had. The steak came on a bed of spinach with chips, seasoned onion crisps, a choice of two sauces and mushrooms... More

We've been here a few times recently and it's consistently good. We wanted to try the Chateaubriand which is for two to share. To be honest there was enough meat for three to share (we had to wrap and take some away with us) chips and trimmings were great as usual. The steak was superb, so tender. We had a... More

The staff were really good at helping us work out some choices for our coeliac daughter, which put us in a good place for the evening, and the food was very good. First thing, the portions are generous. The fish was huge! The staff referred to it as whale and chips. The carbonara was tasty and big, the gammon was... More

Have been here a few times over the last year and it's always been good, but on this visit-Wow! It's definitely gone up a notch. The service was better, the menu was better and when the steaks came they were superb! Ribeyes, juicy and thick, cooked to perfection. Beautiful chips, piping hot, crispy outside and fluffy inside. Mushrooms, tomatoes and... More

Staff were amazing. Food was delicious!! I had the chicken carbonara I think it was, and my partner had a peppercorn chicken and rice dish (i can't remember the name of it). We had starters as well, chilli prawns and my partner had duck rolls I think. For pudding we shared a brownie which they kindly cut in two and... More
