|One of us has been going to The Chequers, Well for 30 years, so in the times of the freehold landlord. It has had its ups and downs. We still go regularly, but it is deteriorating again.|
We were served "sandwiches" which the (I hesitate to call Chef) had failed to butter the bread of, and the bread was off a bog standard loaf, and rather stale. If you ask for any variation of a sandwich, such as a bit of cucumber, they want to take something off!.
The needless pile of hot onion rings, whilst lovely with a steak I am sure to some folk, is superfluous on a sandwich plate, and I would just prefer a decent sandwich.
The waiting staff have become vacant, and asked if the meal was OK after we had to ask if we could butter our own sandwiches.
Basically, there are attention to detail and attitude problems here, which is a great shame.

|The chequers in Well is very much a mixed bag.|
Often the food served here is very tasty, the creme brulee and the ultimate burger are two such items. However as has been commented on the prices can be a little extortionate what what you get on some dishes.
There is a mixed quality in the service too, the more experienced staff are lovely and polite and make for a wonderful evening however some of the inexperienced staff are indeed very slow.
The pub itself isn't small however the actual bar is minute! This is certainly not ideal during busy periods , and even with such a small bar getting around it can be difficult due to the squeezed space.
Despite the shortcomings I almost always have a good time at the Chequers, enjoy their pub quiz and all in all it's not a bad old place.

|Oh dear!! Went there with a few friends on a late Sunday afternoon (when we actually had some sunshine!), we were quickly put off any food after the resident dog had taken food from another customers table, quickly followed by crapping on the lawn 4 times in a few minutes.|
Later we moved inside - very nicely presented - but our conversation was drowned out by the owner/landlord who was drunk. The other staff were pleasant to deal with - even if a little embarrassed by the proceedings.
Not sure if we will go back or could recommend it.
