Visited for an overnight stay last night. Fell in love with the place. Such a warm welcome from the owner. Shown room then straight back for dinner. Food was fantastic. Service was prompt and not in your face. Drinks always kept topped up. Decor is quaint and quirky which i loved. Right down to the low ceilings and numerous items... More

The Chequers is one of a growing breed of village pubs where the food served is of a very high order. They have an extensive menu, and we have yet to find fault with any aspect. The greeting from Ian and Jacky is always warm, and the attention is always prompt.

We stumbled across this gorgeous pub by accident. Glad we did and will be back. The Landlord was friendly and funny. Food was great. Good amount of choices & reasonably priced. The gardens were so well kept and I loved the hanging baskets.

This is nice pub with a focus on restaurant not a drinkers place really. The food was above average pub food, served piping hot and the portions were very good. Nice decoration, clean and tidy - all to be recommended. The landlord did everything including clearing the tables - well done him! One suggestion would be to avoid calling the... More

We arrived at about 12.10 pm for lunch and appeared to be the first customers of the day. My partner requested a soft drink (she was driving) and was told she was really pushing the boat out; not the most customer friendly repartee. We were then shown to a very small two person table and I enquired of the same... More

This is a very local small pub in a village some miles of the A420. Having said that we were made very welcome and given a table straight away. The food was excellent and within the hour we were there the pub filled up for classic Sunday lunches. This was a lunch stop to break up a long journey. If... More

Just stayed here the 1 night after visiting Oxford and Blenheim palace. Had a very nice evening meal sat in the bright conservatory, then a drink at the bar. Had a very nice English breakfast in the morning, the staff were very nice and helpful and would recommend a stay here if just passing through.
