Reviews of Chequers Inn, Smarden

We spent a very pleasant weekend at “The Chequers”. This was a 14th century public house which is steeped in character and had a very welcoming air to it. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in one of the double rooms, which was clean, airy and again full of character with oak beams, low ceilings and was fitted out with antique furniture. We ate in the pub for the two nights we were there and were not disappointed. The portions were plentiful and well presented as well being very flavoursome. Smarden is a beautiful village and a great place to visit surrounding points of interest in Kent. Four choices of Real Ale which had been well kept.

We have eaten many times in this establishment over the last 18 months but now, unfortunately, it has changed hands and the food is diabolical! The menu is virtually non existant, the staff are scruffy and couldn't care less whether they serve you or not, all together a very unplesant visit. When we asked to see the desert menu we were shown a board with TWO items on it and told 'well, there is ice cream if you want it'. After many happy times spent in this restaurant we will definately not be returning - especially as all four of us had 'deli belly' after eating there.
