Comments & Compliments

"To Jo, Karen and all Chequers Staff,

We would both like to thankyou for our amazing wedding. The hard work that you all put in to make our day so special means a lot to us. You all worked so hard and everything was more than we could of imagined. All the decorations for the day were done perfectly; the way everything was laid out for, our evening celebrations looked fantastic. We could not have asked for more. You were all highly proffessional at all times, you made sure everything looked great and tasted great. Most of all you made everyone feel welcome. There was never any doubt that we had chosen the right venue to have our wedding at and you will always come highly recommended by us to everyone.

"To Jo and all staff of Chequers,

Many thanks for making the John Ruskin School Prom such a successful night. The room was perfect and the food and service excellent. We hope we will be able to hold our prom again with you in the future.

"My family and I recently had the pleasure of attending my daughter's wedding at Chequers. In the run up to the wedding, we were anxious that everything would go okay. We needn't have worried. The ceremony, reception and evening disco/buffet were all held at Chequers and I have to say we had a wonderful time. The wedding co-ordinator and her team worked incredibly hard throughout the day. The service they gave was impeccable. The food at the afternoon reception was lovely and the evening buffet was incredible. We got lots of lovely comments from our guests. We felt that nothing was too much trouble to the staff and that they were doing their utmost to make sure we had a lovely day. Everytime seemed to go out of their way for us, from the lady who served us on early breakfast, to the DJ who sent out for some of the songs we requested during the evening. I would definitely reccomend Chequers as a wedding venue."
