Went to the Check Inn last night and both had home made steak and ale pie served with chips !! and vegetables. This must be the worse meal I have ever had. Waited an hour for the food but not bothered about that although they were not busy. My chips consisted of at least 40 percent of crispy scraps The... More

Visited The Check Inn with family on a busy Saturday evening this month. We were greeted by polite and friendly staff and promptly shown to our table away from the main bar. Our food took a little while to arrive, but when we did we fully appreciated the wait as it was all cooked freshly to order, piping hot and... More

We went for Sunday lunch here for 2 family members birthdays, the staff were friendly enough, I don't know where the new owners have come from but the service showed a lot of inexperience with a sting of little things resulting in us all saying we wouldn't go back. Menus were handwritten on scraps of A5 paper full of spelling... More

Lovely roast, nice and hot with organic vegetables. Beef was very tender and chicken was moist. Lovely homemade gravy. Reminded me of having Sunday lunch at my mums. Service was extremely quick and waitresses very friendly and helpful. Will return

9 of us went for lunch today to celebrate my nephew's 18th birthday. Food was fantastic and service was quick and efficient. The boys all loved the homemade burgers and the cheesy chips were amazing ! Good wholesome food at a reasonable price with a lovely pub atmosphere. We will return .!

17 of us sat down to a lunchtime meal today. Although the lunchtime menu is, at the moment limited, the food on offer was well cooked and all meals came out at the same time - a definite plus when so many are eating together. The service was efficient, very friendly and provided excellent value for money. Tea and coffee... More

Five of us went there for lunch. It didn't seem particularly busy. We were advised that all food was seasonal and the menu was therefore limited and that all food was cooked to order, we were told that the meals would take a while. He was right, we waited quite a long time for our food. We had to go... More

The service is friendly and attentive, the food is fresh. One of the best roasts I've had in a while. Credit to the chef and her team.

Appalling lunch time menu. Not much on offer at all. Settled for ham, egg and chips. The chips were so hard and under-cooked, I couldn't even get my fork in some on them. The eggs were burnt on the bottom and hard. The waitress asked if everything was alright, I said no not really and explained what was wrong with... More
