      These comments are very reassuring, thank you and I promise I will not rest on our laurels but keep trying to improve.
      We are currently applying for permission to extend the parking area so any support shown on the Ashford council website would be very, very much appreciated as a lot depends on this as far as future investment plans for the Chequers on the Green.
      I am landscaping the pond and hope to have a classy, heated terrace ready soon!
      I would like to add that so far I am extremely gratified with the amazing local support thank you.

    Had a meal with friends last night. The place was packed tight. Took a torch based on the last review and definitely needed it to read the menu. The food was very good, fresh and wholesome, lots of it too. Average prices in case anyone is wondering. For 4 people, just having a main course each, coffee and a couple of drinks, came to £80.

    Well done to the owner, lets hope the support continues.

    Had a delicious meal here, lovely staff, good service. Wasn’t that keen on eating just by candlelight though, bit like eating in a 15th century Inn. Had to use the flashlight on my phone to read the menu!! Think my age and dodgy eyes may not have helped but couldn’t see how much seasoning I was sprinkling on my food.. Still will definitely recommend to friends.
