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

High quality cuisine. A very special menu and friendly helpful staff. Had the gruyere and chive soufflé - light and very flavoursome. One of our party ordered a dish that had cheese (that she is not a fan of) sprinkled over it that wasn’t listed on the menu. If it had been, she would have ordered something else. The waitress offered to get the dish done without cheese, or a replacement. Really helpful and reasonable measure. The deserts were exquisite. We dined in the marquee in keeping with current regulations. Excellent experience all round.

We had a lovely lunch, sat under the marquee. Food was delicious. Service friendly and attentive but not overbearing. Great garden for the children. Will definitely return.

We have missed our regular visits to the Chequers during the Pandemic. Considering the difficulties of having to serve customers outside irrespective of the weather, we found the staff very enthusiastic and attentive during our second visit this year, it’s just a delight to be able to eat out again at our favourite local.

We had a wonderful family lunch at The Chequers. The food was incredible as always (highly recommend both the roast beef and chicken!) and the service was delightful. Thanks to Mark, Alex and their team.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal last Friday and will, without doubt, be visiting again especially as The Chequers Inn is on our regular walk. The quality of the food and service were excellent and are very important attributes to us in making the experience worthwhile. Because of this we are encouraged to re-visit. We have been surprised at times how lacking this can be at some venues and as such we have not returned.

Due to the current restrictions, we were seated outside, under a big marquee, which was fine although cold. If there had been heaters, i would have said 5 stars for atmosphere. As always the food and service was great.

Huge thanks to the team at The Chequers in Berrick Salome for making our first meal 'out' with friends since the endless lockdowns such a lovely evening. It was a bit of a chilly evening, but the marquee was a great outdoor compromise! The meal was delicious - chilli octopus for starters (very exotic!), and the Lamb Henry main was excellent. Hoping to be back again very soon.
