It was an added bonus the there were Christmas Markets in and around the area, with Brass Band playing in the Pub - so Christmas'ey it was fabulous.

The Chequers is a really lovely pub where locals, tourists and cyclists all find a place to sit down, have some very good food (I had the spring lamb which was wonderful) and enjoy their wide selection of ales. It's easy to find a place to sit and the staff behind the bar were very kind; they filled up our... More

Lovely place very old and has heaps of character. Good beer and this is a dog friendly. The food looks great when served, although not eaten the food. It has a restaurant at the rear, so don't be put off when you go in for food.

Went in for family lunch, from the moment we arrived, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Food was lovely and good choice. Good atmosphere with friendly locals too. Noticed awards at end for outstanding staff and would agree. Definitely worth a visit and would highly recommend to others.

I popped in for lunch last Thursday and had Ham, Egg and Chips - a simple meal but the tastes were wonderful. Best chips ever. The ham comes from a local butcher and is roasted in cloves. There was so much I had enough to take him for a sandwich. Coupled with friendly staff and atmosphere its a winner for... More

Cosy and quaint little pub, dog friendly and they made a fuss of our dog too. The food was well priced and delicious. All four of us enjoyed it. I had the liver and bacon which came with a lovely creamy mash. It was devine.

We had Sunday lunch here and it was surprisingly quiet, which made me a bit wary at first as usually places are booked up for Sunday lunch, but the food was great- even roast beef, which I'm not usually big a fan of, was delicious. The best bit by far though was the desserts. Can especially recommend the Malteser Sundae... More

We are a Classic English pub in the centre of Chipping Norton. We sell 6 real ales and locally sourced home-cooked food. We are well known for our fantastic pies and Sunday roasts. Next to the theatre, we are the perfect place to enjoy a bite and a drink before or after a show.
