    Really enjoyable meal and overall experience. We were late and were missing our guest for a hour and the staff and restaurant made it very stress free and I really appreciated that . It was a special occasion and they made it all very relaxed even though it started off a bit messy. Thank you . We’ll be back.

    Lovely experience at Chequer Lane. The staff are so friendly and attentive, nothing was too much bother. Were very kind to change booking last minute for a later time. Food very tasty especially the calamari and mussels for starters. Would definitely recommend the espresso martini as well. Will definitely visit again, perfect setting for a birthday celebration or catch up with friends ☺️

    We didn’t stay for dinner I’m afraid there was a terrible smell of drains when we arrived, it was very disappointing staff were very nice but wouldn’t comment on what the smell was, the couple before us complained too

    Menu very limited. I had sqiud rings to start however very chewey and most of the coating had fallen off. Main course was a burger which was very nice l. Overall a nice meal but when you think about it 23 euro for a burger is a bit expensive. Would score 6 out of 10

    Exceptional hosting, very attentive and lovely. Cocktails good. Food overall was good but lacked in certain areas for cost. Roast disappointing, tough and over cooked ( disclaimer; we asked for med to well) , look liked slices where pan finished for the med to well ask, mistake on our part but also the restaurant. Next time I’d ask for ‘as is ‘ if I got roast again., however, I’m sure I’ll never get that again. Yorkshire puddings so hard you couldn’t eat. Crab pasta amazing, fish and chips reasonable and chicken very good. Desert lovely, profiteroles and pana cotta amazing ! Overall good and very relaxed. Not memorable for food however the experience was. We had a lovely time.

    One of the best meals ive had in ages. The food was absolutely delicious. Sunday roast of roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, spuds, gravy and roast veg. Every last mouthful was delicious, especially the horseradish sauce. Its a dinner I've eaten so many times over the years, but never this good. Busy place, but noisy but it was mothers day so there were probably more kids in than usual. Decor is fab and music too. We were welcomed in by a very friendly staff, to the tunes of Marvin Gaye! My only gripe is that at €12 for a glass of sauvignon blanc, and 10.50 for a dessert, the bill can quickly run away with you. Having said that, the wine was lovely, perfectly chilled and my elderly and fussy father said the Guinness was great! Will definitely go back.

    Was quite looking forward to this as I like JO as a personality. Initially greeting and in general, waiting staff very pleasant. Our server wasn’t too bothered, took some time to bring wine and condiments. When we asked a second time, he said ‘I told you I’m bringing it’. Didn’t really tend to the table. Later we ordering a round of drinks that never came so we just paid the bill and moved on. Food was ok.

    Had the early bird mid week. Good food at an affordable price. Only gripe would be we had one dessert and we're charged the full rate instead of charging for a two course and three course. Food was delicious hot and we didn't have a long wait. Would return.

    We had a wonderful lunch here to mark my aunts retirement. It was our first time going, and it certainly won't be our last. The decor and ambiance are just lovely in a modern and bright setting. The menu is fabulous with enough variety for anyone without being excessive. The wine list was great too, with a wide variety to choose from. The food was just top notch and our server was excellent. A definite find to return to!

    Ordered Squid to start, which was quite disappointing and wouldn't recommend. Steak was beautifully done but the sides (I had the mash and greens? was very underwhelming. Coffee & Cigerette cocktail was pretty cool and tasty. Overall nice but probably wouldn't be rushing back - got desert elsewhere as was expensive for what we got.
