Sarah, Kathryn & Stéphane - The Frenchman and the Farmer's Daughters

Welcome to The Checkers, Montgomery. We are a family-run Michelin star restaurant with rooms, offering classic French fine dining and luxury accommodation.

A historic former coaching inn, The Checkers is the perfect place for a short break in Wales, or to celebrate a special occasion with our tasting menus, fine wines and local ale.

Chef proprietor Stéphane Borie trained under Michel Roux Senior and – together with his partner Sarah – has built a reputation for classic French cuisine executed with skill and precision.  In 2011 The Checkers was awarded a Michelin star in its opening year.  Sarah's sister Kathryn completes the family trio, ensuring a warm and informal welcome front of house. 

We hope you enjoy exploring our site and discovering a little of what makes The Checkers - together with Montgomery, Powys - so special.


We are open for dinner from 7.15pm Tuesday to Saturday.

We are closed on Sundays and Mondays.
