We have eaten here on three occasions, when visiting relations for birthday, wake and family get together and each time the food and service have been superb.

We were staying near by and decided to try the chequers inn. We were not disappointed. Service was quick and efficient. The food was outstanding and well worth paying a bit more than you usually would. The owner/manager was extremely friendly alongside the younger waitresses. If we were in the area again, we would definitely return.

The Chequers is quite a modest-looking inn on the Banbury-Stratford road but is a dining oasis.Inside it is tastefully furnished and the menu, with a strong fish element, is most enterprising. The service at lunch today was prompt, friendly and efficient but unobtrusive. My halibut as exquisite as were the two special desserts on offer. The price for 3, including... More

Booked a table at Chequers as we were staying in the area. Easy to find as it is on the main road and has a good car park. We were welcomed politely, shown to our table and our drinks order taken promptly. Glad we had booked as the bar was packed on a Saturday night and every table in the... More

Ettington is small and what looks like it's standalone pub is a great complement to the village. It's busy, friendly and the food menu is limited which reflects everything being made fresh. Food is generous but the attention to flavour is more important in my view when coming away satisfied. Desert menu looked good but frankly I was full so... More

Our small group decided to dine at the Chequers Inn after leaving a very disappointing hotel experience at the nearby Ettington Chase Hotel, the warm friendly greeting and attentive service were very much welcomed after the rude hospitality we had received across the road! We opted to sit in the bar area which was both modern with a rustic vibe... More
