Lunch@The Chequers,Cutnall Green

The Chequers is a pub with a restaurant and, for several seasons now, it has been run by Roger Narbett – the former England Football team chef.

The quality of the beer is often a good marker for the quality of the food.  Here you can choose between several old favourites like Sharp’s Doom Bar but I am intrigued enough to substitute all these for the Chequers Pale Ale.  Brewed specially for them by Marstons – it is promoted by a fabulously fruity aroma and a good flavour.  I guess it smells so good that it is slightly, but only slightly, relegated by the flavour.


To start I tackle the Yuk Sung.  With this dish you build a series of wraps from baby gem lettuce leaves to surround your oriental chicken, a volley of frazzled noodles and a shot of soy sauce. Rock passes on the starter and saves herself for the main course.

She intercepts the Chicken Breast with Honey & Lemon Thyme Marinated Club Salad.  The club salad includes a hat-trick of delights: crispy pancetta, avocado and a quail’s egg!  Offside there are skinny fries.  I attack the Barbecued Lamb Koftas served with Tzatziki and corners of Flat Bread.  We both enjoy the main course.


I think we may kick ourselves if we don’t return to this ground for another match.

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
