Modern pub grub done right

A village pub with a focus on food, The Chequers has been done up with a bit of individuality and doesn't look the same as everywhere else. There's nothing fussy about the culinary output, but time has been taken to seek out good quality ingredients such as British charcuterie and oysters from the south coast. Snails and mushrooms arrive on toast, rich with parsley and garlic, while main courses include steaks such as flat iron and rib-eye served with chips cooked in duck fat. Alternatively go for breaded lemon sole with fennel slaw and brown shrimps. To finish, rhubarb Mess and banoffee pot are modern takes on classic puds.
