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
Really good food. The restaurant was quiet as it was so nice outside, so it lacked a bit of atmosphere inside, but highly recommend the food
Fabulous pub, friendly staff and lovely food. Nice quiet location and cosy décor. Definitely worth a visit!
Good garden, good menu. Food was OK. Really enjoyed our evening.
Lovely, freshly cooked gasto pub food. The staff are very welcoming and the service is excellent, nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend this place to everyone.
Lovely food, great service and cozy pleasant surroundings
Onion soup was the only starter on the children's menu. This doesn't seem very suitable.
Very pleasant evening great service and we all enjoyed our food although the rib eye steak ordered medium was served well done some water on the table would have been good
Very pleasant pub with nice people running it
Lovelt countryside pub. Great high quality home cooking.
Really nice food in a lovely setting.
Loved the Thai salad and my partner had pie always delicious, never had a bad meal and the staff are friendly and helpful, enjoyed our evening, thankyou
This was our first visit and the atmosphere was lovely. We enjoyed playing darts whilst waiting for dinner. Dinner was good value and generous portions of fries, but drinks were a bit more expensive than our local (and we do live nearby) the bottle of coke at £2.95 is very expensive. Drinks were a long time coming even though it was not very busy. None of the desserts appealed and odd to have brownies with Guinness which put my daughter off eating them, when normally this would be a child’s favourite choice. We did enjoy our meal and will come again.
We always enjoy Chequers Inn. Keep it up!
Lovely food in a very pleasant atmosphere. I particularly enjoyed the cheese souffle starter. The bread selection is tasty and the vegetables accompanying the roast chicken and pork belly dishes were very well cooked. On our visit the service was a little hit and miss. In their defence it was busy and we agreed that it hadn't put us off a return visit.
I think that the pub was a little over run as the service was extremely slow, the staff were lovely but not as attentive as I would think they would usually be. It was father’s day so the pub I think was unusually busy. Food was lovely and we had a nice meal. The playground was great to keep the kids entertained whilst waiting!
We had a fantastic roast on Sunday as always 😊however I’m a little confused at the statement above regarding the menu as we have always been charged for starters/pudding separately and not as a Sunday 2 course offer at £17.50🤔
We had a great time sitting in your lovely garden eating fish and chips! Thank you
The atmosphere was cosy with excellent food and very attentive staff, this is the second time we have been and would gladly go back again, and feel this is a excellent traditional pub that we could do with more of.
Delicious Sunday Roast. Excellent service and great atmosphere. One of our favourite places to eat
Food is always delicious here. Kids adore the fish and chips, and the kids menu is great value for money. The outdoor setting is peaceful, spacious and pleasant. Only bit of feedback is to say that summer Sundays would benefit from being less roast focused.
We hosted a special birthday dinner for 26 people, excellent food and good service. Thank you for making it a lovely evening.
Fantastic all round. Would highly recommend.
A nice meal in the garden on a lovely warm day 😊
