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
Sunday lunch at the Chequers is always very enjoyable. The beef is cooked to perfection and the service is welcoming and friendly.
Great food and very good service.
Great food as always. We were charged the wrong price for the wine we ordered by the glass but it was only by a few pounds.
Our first visit to The Chequers Inn and we were very impressed. On booking I didn't realise it was Burns Night so when we got there we were greeted by a piper and then later in the evening the haggis was piped in. Great food and a great atmosphere. We will be returning.
Pub food that's as good as any!
Great lunch in a beautiful place with fab service - thank you!
My favourite pub in Oxfordshire - cosy pub feel and lovely food. Their plant burger is quite definitely the best non-meat burger I've ever tasted.
Friendly and efficient service despite being busy. Delicious Sunday lunch. It is great to see a menu with a date on it!
Lovely food with great atmosphere
Superb village pub, friendly attentive staff and delicious food, and the dog came too!
I have never been disappointed here.
Nicest roast dinner I've had in a long time!
Hearty winter food with some classy touches - grujere souffle was great, local pork belly also. Great friendly service and food came at just the right pace
Another good lunch here. Very welcoming pub, good food, nice menu. Very relaxed country pub.
Always fabulous food. Even though it was super busy did not wait long for our meal.
fabulous food, service and atmosphere. Only one little moan - no horse radish !
A lovely pub with great food and service, will definitely be coming back.
Thank you everyone at The Chequers. Your staff were lovely and accommodating- the food was delicious and our family had a really great afternoon.
Nice atmosphere with the music playing in the background, service was quick and very friendly staff Food was excellent the chefs do a great job
I Would recommend the Chequers without any hesitation.
Very enjoyable. Good quality food and cooking and very relaxed but efficient service despite being busy. We will be back.
Could not fault anything. Food was great, staff were attentive but not overly so. Locals were also very friendly. All in all will definitely return next time we’re in Oxfordshire.
Friendly and efficient staff and cosy, atmospheric bar area. Excellent food, though unfortunately the pave venison was a little overdone (even after being returned). Beer very well-kept.
