We had reviewed this place on Tripadvisor pior to our visit, read the brilliant reviews and decided to go there - as we had been to a NT property nearby before hand. We hadn't pre-booked a table - it was a Saturday 12.30 and it was lovely and quiet. We were greeted by the lovely, friendly waitress who told us... More

My wife and I happened upon this gem of a pub/restaurant whilst on a drive around the countryside. We had one of the most enjoyable lunches ever in fabulous surroundings. The owners and staff are so friendly, another visit was definately on the cards. In fact we returned on three occasions, each providing us with equally excellent lunches service. Do... More

Had visited the Chequers several times over the last 2 or 3 years and it has always been pleasant enough. Booked for their Fish Night which they have every month. I had mussels to start with a lovely mild Thai sauce and my husband had a crab and asparagus tian which was beautifully served. I then had Halibut with some... More

Staff were adorable - lovely local girls who were so pleasant and helpful. Decor was particularly and unexpectedly feminine - twee cum shabby chic. Not your typical old village inn. One end is clearly restaurant, and the other more traditional pub. Small range of decent beers. Menu interesting, seems to do a roaring trade in carry out means for locals.... More

I went here for lunch without booking on a Wednesday. No problem. It was my first visit following a friend's recommendation. The pub has retained a pub atmosphere but is definitely a restaurant. It is clean and spacious and the staff are superb. The menu contains some very interesting dishes as well as a few favourites. There is no fixed... More

Decent looking pub in the village of Ettington. Visited for a mid week lunch and quite busy so I imagine you may need to book at weekends. Well decorated although serving area is quite dark with a mix of woods - furniture, floor and bar.There is also a lighter room at the back and garden. We had sandwiches which were... More

Dropped in for lunch as this looked like a lovely venue. Inside was light and airy, food was quick to appear and very tasty, staff were friendly and it wasn't too pricey.
