This was the perfect place for our pre-Christmas family lunch, a manageable day trip for 9 family members living both in the north west and the south east. The food was really delicious for everyone, including rare interesting choices for one vegetarian, one pescatarian and one vegan. The bill was reasonable for such high quality fare. The ambience is superb... More

I have eaten at the Chequers twice in the last few months and both times the food has been average/poor. The last time I visited I struggled to find anything 'healthy' everything was high fat. I decided to go for the beef stronganof. It was not edible. I was expecting lean beef in a tasty sauce - I got different... More

We stopped on spec for Sunday lunch, they managed to fit us in on a table in the bar. The decor is pleasant and the atmosphere good. The range of food was good, but I struggled at getting options without pepper (I have allergies - the meat was pre-seasoned). When it came the good was good and my fellow travellers... More

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.
