Jonathan has spent years restoring the vintage bikes - a red and black Lambretta Rallymaster 150, a green SX 150 Lambretta, a cream series 2 Spanish Lambretta 150 Winter Model and a yellow Serveta Jet 200.

A CCTV camera at the pub captured two men stealing the bikes from the garage.

It is believed that they were loaded into a van.

Jonathan's daughter, Sophie Thomson, who works at The Chequers, said: "My dad has always restored bikes, he has done it for years and they are like his children.

"It's not just the value of the bikes which is upsetting but the fact that he has spent so many years restoring them.

"Whoever has taken them hasn't got the keys or the paperwork so if they haven't gone abroad and are still in this country they are not going to be easy for anyone to use."

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
