user reviews of the Chequers, Dartford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I'm told that it has changed hands yet gain. I recently had a very pleasant mid-week lunchtime interlude but past experience makes me wonder if the new managers will be experienced enough to maintain the current level of trade, especially on a Sunday when I see all local spaces crammed with parking. Experience tells me why, but will it continue?

As pub aficianado says this pub has frequently changed hands in recent years with no-one seeming to be able to make a go of it, hope the current incumbents fare better, they seem ok

On the beer front on my visit Doom Bar and London Pride were available, the doom bar was perfectly ok quality wise, but its not an interesting beer these days. A decent guest ale would improve things. Overall 7 out of 10 for the pub, 5 out of 10 for the uninteresting beer choice ... overall 6/10 then...

Many changes of licensee over the years suggest that the off-the-beaten-track location has had an adverse effect, but these days the car park is crowded at all sorts of times, suggesting that the place has been 'discovered'.

A rather unusual feature is the number of wheelchair-bound regulars, no doubt from one of the three nearby nursing homes (which, as a visitor, is how I really discovered the place) but that doesn't distract from the pleasures of the service, the well-served beer (usually at least three varieties) and the garden.

Well worth searching it out.
