“Delightful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

On the basis of 1 visit in a noisy group of 10 on a busy day I can only endorse other comments. Very interesting gastro pub menu. Service good by pleasant girls. Food met expectations. Good ales, altho perhaps less brands and more micro would be good.Will visit again. It probably won't be getting a Michelin anytime soon - meant in a good way.

“Highly recommended.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

During a few days away my wife and I popped into The Cheques Inn for a quiet drink before returning to our nearby hotel. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the place gave off a good vibe. After a glance at the appealing menu and a read through the reviews on tripadvisor we decided to book a table for the following night, and were not disappointed. The food was superb and plentiful and was very reasonably priced. We would definitely return when in the area again and would highly recommend to anyone to visit for themselves.

“Perfect Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Just had to tell you had a super evening at The Chequers on Saturday evening. We picked The chequers from tripadvisor and I am pleased to say we were not disappointed.From the friendly staff to the surroundings and ambiance not to mention the fine cuisine it ticked all our boxes. We will certainly return again the next time we are in the area.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Whilst on holiday in the Cotswolds last week my Wife and I decided to have dinner at the Chequers Inn after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor.
I asked if we could take our Golden Retriever into the bar and was advised that this was fine.On arrival we were pleasantly surprised as the decor in the bar is almost as good as in the restaurant. The very pleasant waitress presented our dog with a chew and a bowl of water and unlike so many restaurants seemed genuinely happy to serve us.
Our meal was excellent and reasonably priced and it was a real pleasure to eat in such a welcoming environment.
Will definitely return when next in the area.
