We only stayed for one round (white wine and a pint of real ale) but when the barmaid served other customers she didn't really seem to know what she was doing and couldn't open a bottle of Prosecco type wine. When two of the lagers wouldn't pull through properly (too lively) another barmaid said it could be the lines or... More

We booked this pub accidentally, thinking it was another one 2 miles away with the same name. However, whilst I was disappointed and irritated about this, it was, nevertheless, my mistake ultimately so I approached "The Chequers" with an open mind. When I made the booking, I had told the lady I spoke to that my son was very fussy... More

This place is so welcoming - the landlord and staff are really friendly - felt instantly at ease and comfortable. Great selection of small to full meals, well cooked and really good value.

Such a characterful old pub. A glorious building with all sorts of interesting quirks and beams. There for a business meeting, we packed out the restaurant so it was a bit snug. The food was delicious and plentiful. A great place to visit.

I say this a lot - being busy should not be an excuse for poor service, especially in this instance. We were a party of nine with three small children (they wanted plain spaghetti and cheese, hardly taxing) but there was no one else dining in the pub. Our meals came out staggered, and what sounded like a lovely and... More

We came in here as friends had recommended it and were not disappointed. The place was busy but there were some places to sit. Most importantly the selection and quality of beers was excellent. I wish we had stayed all evening rather than having to rush off to an average curry.

You don't tend to eat in your local boozer, but tonight I did as I was meeting an old friend whom I haven't seen in 20 years who was passing thro the area. Terry the Chef probably has been at The Chequers now for about a year and has utterly transformed the place. This is not (fortunately) a gastro pub... More

This used to be my hubby's local (only 3 miles away fron his then home!) when he lived in Oxfordshire. We decided to have lunch there recently. Bit of a wait for the food, but it was ok in the end. Rissotto was huge and not too bad tasting. Not piping hot. Halloumi salad was delicious. Hubby's roast was nice... More

Roast pork, stuffing and all the trimmings. Sounds simple doesn't but actually it takes rather a lot of skill to keep the punters happy and serve up a perfect plateful of food. This lovely old pub has very friendly staff,a commendable dog-friendly attitude that extended to bowl of water and no less than 3 dog biscuits! And the food was... More
