The atmosphere, the food and the staff were wonderful. It's very rare that you get decent full table service these days so it was very refreshing to get all courses and drinks bought to the table by friendly, efficient staff. Food was gorgeous, served in very cosy surroundings. We have friends that live in Ettington so hope to return again... More

The Chequers is a very cosy gastro pub with very nice decor and very friendly staff, a good variety of meals available from sandwiches to main meals. The quality of the food is very very good and reasonably priced and would not hesitate to return.

Mum and I were warmly greeted by a friendly waitress who found us a lovely table in the pretty dining area. We shared a starter (and the waitress brought over an extra plate and cutlery unprompted) and each enjoyed our main courses - tasty, well-presented food. We had no room for pudding but enjoyed what appeared to be a home... More

The atmosphere is very pleasant with taste full décor. The food is of great quality and the menu varies seasonally so the food is always fresh. Fish night which happens once a month is always great and definitely worth a visit. Book early though for this special night

My family and I dined here tonight, we arrived and were met with an uninterested welcome by the Bar man. I said I had booked a table and his reply was" really"!! We sat down and ordered the meal which was tasteless and uninteresting. The serving staff were polite and smiled nicely, such a contrast to the Bar man. We... More

I think this gastro has to be the best we've ever been too. The menu is great and the food is amazing. The staff are so friendly. The chequers even support a local charity. It feels like a home from home. Locals are known and they make everyone feel welcome. Thanks to james , kirsty and staff. If passing through... More

My family and I had Sunday lunch here yesterday to celebrate my father's 93rd birthday. There were 8 adults and 3 young children in our group. The service and food was excellent and all members of the party were very well catered for. After a leisurely lunch we spent the afternoon in the very attractive garden where the children enjoyed...
