Our Story

Meet Chef Santok

Santok's roots delve deep into the gastronomic heritage of the Gujarati region of India, acclaimed for its vibrant street food and healthy vegetarian cuisine.


Inherited from a lineage of extraordinary home chefs, Santok's cooking celebrates the flavours and traditions of her background. Her approach to cooking is rich in flavour but not at the sacrifice of health. Her focus is on preparing whole fresh, high quality produce and meat, grinding and mixing her own families spice blends, infusing her dishes with a unique signature that is impossible to replicate.

Since the restaurant's opening five years ago, Santok's journey as a chef has seen remarkable growth. This has made The Chequers Inn a beloved dining spot for village regulars, many of whom visit more than three times a week!
