We visited The Chequers for Sunday roast. It was a cold day and there was a lovely open fire to welcome us. The food here is delicious and very well presented. The pub is attractive and just a few minutes from Ettington Chase Hotel.

Been driving past here for years and not stopped. At last decided to visit for a meal with friends and we were not disappointed. Lovely setting, atmosphere, service and food were excellent, well worth stopping.

The staff here were very friendly and helpful from start to finish. There were 6 of us for Sunday lunch and we were all very pleased with the food. Their Sunday roasts were generous and the sea bass, which I had, was delicious. We were there late but weren't rushed at all, even though we were aware the bar was... More

We'd been meaning to eat here for a while so took a chance on the way back from Banbury on Friday evening. Fortunately they were able to find a table for us. Great service and delicious food, I had the fish and chips followed by the hazelnut and chocolate torte, both were excellent. I look forward to going back and... More

A really nice pub, well decorated with a focus on good food. The staff are very friendly and helpful as well. Have driven past this pub many many times so am so glad we finally got to stop. The menu is extensive and everything I saw coming out of the kitchen looked great. Will be stopping more often from now... More

My third visit to this Inn. The food is very good and nicely presented.The staff were friendly and attentive. The surroundings are excellent. I was in a party of 8 and we all agreed that the food was value for money and I have no hesitation at all in recommending.
