Komakino . left this review about The Chequers

As noted previously, this premises is a former coaching inn, and the front part of the interior is all brick wall and dark, low beams. The bar area is towards the rear, down a couple of steps with the usual C&B white, black and grey colour scheme. Just GK IPA and something called Chequers Ale (a third pump was unclipped). The latter was inoffensive enough. You'd only likely visit here to eat, as that's their shtick - the ale seems to be a bit of a afterthought.

For a chain pub, Chef and Brewer, really not bad, and they take Tesco vouchers!!
The staff were a little busy, and very thin on the ground, but remained friendly and pleasant.
The food was the standard chain pub fare, well presented, but could have been a little hotter. Service was very slow, probably due to the lack of staff.
As to the beer, GK IPA and Doom Bar. Neither on my list of drinkable brews. The Guiness was off too. I had a very nice pint of Strongbow, as a last resort. Basically, it's an average restaurant that serves beer rather than a pub that serves meals.

Called in again on Saturday 9th July. Still got GK IPA and Doom Bar, plus London Pride. I had the mixed grill, but what I got was a cold meat platter that looked like a mixed grill. Since the refurbishment, this place has gone back down to the standard it used to be about two years ago. I have given it 3/10. 1 - they take Tesco vouchers (for the time being, 1 - The Pride was very nice and 1 - The chips were hot. Overall, quite an underwhelming experience.

Part of the Chef and Brewer chain,situated in a very old coaching inn with many low beams ,nooks and crannies.After entering from the car park,there is a central island bar with three handpumps serving Wadsworth 6X,Adnams Bitter and London Pride ,a predictable range but OK.Food is the main focus,but you can just pop in for a drink.The furniture is in keeping with the period features and the pub is a pleasing stop.
