Spacious pub in an old building in a lovely old part of Aylesford. Small and very pleasant terrace at the back overlooks the River Medway. Does roast dinners and an average selection of beers. Has a telly, good destination as part of an Aylesford pub crawl.
Chequers is a lovely old building on the banks of the Medway and could easily be a very good pub, that is if the owner and staff could be bothered. During a recent stay in Aylesford we used the Chequers for an evening meal. It was a Saturday evening and the pub was very quiet. I ordered Gammon pineapple and chips only to be informed firstly there was no pineapple and then that there was no gammon. I was offered boiled ham as an alternative. All meals were of a less than average standard and service was slow. Later in the week we returned to Aylesford after a day out and thought we would go down for a drink. It was 9.20 pm and the bar person said she was closing and wouldn't stay open for even one drink. There were six of us and we would have spent a fair amount of money but she didn't want to know.
If you're looking for a tasty Sunday roast, then this is the place! Called in for a family meal, and we were not disappointed. Choice of 3 roast meats, served from the carvery, plus a tasty nut roast for vegetarian in our party. Great value, with excellent selection of vegetables, roast potatoes and parsnips.
