Headed by an award-winning chef and enjoying mentions in The Good Food Guide, The Chequers at Burcot showcases elegant British fine dining dishes. Dine in the 400-year-old inn surrounded by gnarled beams and crackling open fires.

With a focus on ethically sourced produce, The Chequers menu features produce from independent local butchers, trusted farmers, and fruits, vegetables and herbs from local organic allotments. Enjoy artfully presented creations like slow-cooked duck leg with peas and bacon, mackerel pate with lemon and black pepper salad, or rich chocolate mousse with Nutella ice cream.

    Lovely wellcome warm and friendly . Lovely atmosphere and staff worked well together as a team. I ordered the Lamb with potato croquettes and minted peas with shallots and bacon which was absolutely delicious. I have a small appetite so very rarely finish my meal but the plate was left clean. My husband had steak with thrice cooked chips and he which he really enjoyed. Staff very knowledgeable about everything on the menu. Can't wait to go back.

    We love the starter of wild mushrooms and always order it when on the menu. My friend ordered the Cornish skate main dish - it was delicious but she didn't like the fried seaweed (very salty) - perhaps more mainstream greens could be added? - and there didn't seem to be any samphire, which was part of the dish as described on the menu. These comments were made to a staff member after main course had been eaten.
