We stayed at the Ettington Hotel and found this place on our way back to the hotel the day after we arrived. It's so welcoming, lovely friendly atmosphere with some locals in, open fire roaring and the most amazing food. Wish It was more local as I loved it and wish I could go again. Highly recommend it to everybody

Very welcoming and relaxed in bar area. Their Chequers draught pale ale proved a suitable light lunchtime tipple. Hints of elderflower/hop flowers. Actually all drinks were good. Meal was excellent quality imaginative English food, but with finesse and not stodgy or heavy. Service also excellent, professional, friendly and helpful.

Arrived here on Mother's Day. Busy nothing was too much trouble. Just had a main course. A very tasty black Pudding with poached eggs. Sat by the fire and felt thoroughly relaxed. Plan to come back here in the week. Loving the whole region good with lots of villages to visit.

The atmosphere was very pleasant, very good staff & the food was excellent. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. A meal for two (main & dessert) & a couple of... More

Chequers is a warm, welcoming pub/restaurant in the village of Ettington, where I stayed for three weeks whilst house and pet sitting. My wife joined me for one week. I/We visited Chequers a number of times, eating there five times. The food each time was terrific and extra special on Valentine's Day, when we shared Coeur de Beuf for two.... More

Recently we went to The Chequers on a busy evening without having booked. Nevertheless we were made very welcome, informed we would be able to have a meal there, and meantime we were served with the delicious beer named for the pub. Our meal was delicious and brought to us by very cheery, pleasant staff. Sadly we were visitors to... More

Valentine's lunch was just beautiful. A real treat of Rib of beef to share, roasted vegetables and creamy potatoes. James couldn't be more friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended. Thank you. We will definitely be returning. A lovely experience
