‘I would just like to say a very big thank you to everyone at the Chequers who made my retirement event so special. Julie and the staff were fantastic and everyone was overwhelmed with the hospitality you all showed us. The food, as usual, was absolutely delicious and so beautifully presented. The Chequers really is a special place! Hope to be visiting you again one day soon.’ Lynn, Essex.
