About The Chequers Inn
The Chequers Inn is situated in the picturesque village of Berrick Salome in Oxfordshire, close to the market town of Wallingford and RAF Benson and only a 15 minute drive to Reading, Oxford and Henley on Thames alike. Since taking it over as their second pub venture is September 2014 Mark and Sandra have breathed new life back into the pub which had become disregarded with a inconsistent reputation after the previous landlord. The pub, similar to its sister site; The Three Tuns, offers a fabulous fresh food menu, combining pub classics such as Brakspear battered cod and chips, pie of the day with homemade rough puff pastry lid as well as interesting seasonal dishes such as goats cheese soufflé with wild garlic pesto. All are produced using modern cooking techniques with skilled chefs which give the food the edge on flavour! The Chequers has earned a recommendation in the Michelin Guide in just its first year! Menus change with the seasons to reflect the best of what is available from our local suppliers or from our own garden and neighbours allotments (please note the pub is closed on Tuesdays). Its well renowned Sunday lunch menu, with melt in the mouth rare roast beef and Watlington Free Range Pork Loin; described by many as the best pork they have ever eaten should not be missed - ensure you book on Sundays or you may not get a seat.
As well as fabulous food a warm and friendly welcome awaits from the team, inside the pub has rustic charm with plenty of beams and open fires and a room with a stunning vaulted ceiling, named The Granary is the perfect space for private dining. There is also a huge garden, with enclosed children's play area, table tennis and giant Jenga. There is ample space for al fresco dining as well as a reasonable sized car park. The pub can cater for private functions where you can hire out part or all of the pub and there is also the possibility to have a marquee for weddings, for more information please visit our website
The best Sunday lunch I have ever had and staff very friendly
Another lovely family evening with great food & service.
Lovely, a little pricey
Excellent all round , keep it up !
Very friendly & welcomed my dogs
Food is incredible with great service. Couldn’t fault the experience.
We had a lovely meal here with friends and their toddlers. Food was delicious and atmosphere was nice and relaxed. Would definitely recommend and will be going back.
Food very good. But be prepared to wait sometime for it to be served. We were the only ones in the restaurant. It made us wonder how long we would have to wait if full.
The curry was very good and we enjoyed out meal, a good deal for a Monday night!
Delicious food and warm and welcoming atmosphere
Love the food always, service sometimes lacks
Nice pub, efficient and friendly staff, and a decent meal.
We visited in January to use our suprise voucher - the food was amazing with great with friendly service. A lovely evening.
The belly pork was absolutely gorgeous!
My ratings speak for themselves - always good food and good value
Fantastic Sunday lunch for 9 people. All the different options were excellent. Lovely atmosphere with wood fires. Our new favourite local pub!
Always wonderful food, polite staff and atmosphere :)
This was our second visit within a month. All very good although the table for 4 by the entrance was small particularly once food and drink was on it as it got a bit crowded. We did request a larger table which was empty but was told it was reserved and eventally occupied by 2 adults and a small child. We thought the food was a little on the expensive side but we did enjoy it and will be coming again.
Excellent as ever
Thank you for another fab lunch , excellent service and the best food in our area .
Very helpful. Lovely food. Only criticism was the lack of a light dessert after a large meal.
Thank you to all the staff who made our Christmas family party such a lovely experience- you worked hard - the food was great- we all had a great day.
