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! As well as the main seasonally changing menu the pub offers a great value two course lunch for £10 Mon-Sat (please note the pub is closed on Tuesdays). Its well renowned Sunday lunch menu, with two courses from £17.95, with melt in the mouth rare roast beef and Watlington Free Range Pork Loin on the bone; 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 and the Oxfordshire garden game of Aunt Sally. 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
Fantastic all round. Would highly recommend.
A nice meal in the garden on a lovely warm day 😊
Excellent food, great improvement from previous experience. A little boisterous for some hard of hearing customers but a very delightful meal.
We all really enjoyed our meal. Although the restaurant was packed, the food was excellent as was the service. The staff were polite and friendly and very keen to please. They even apologised for keeping us waiting, even though we didn’t think they had! The restaurant was very busy which did not adversely affect either the food or the service, but did make for a lively atmosphere. Al in all a very good experience. Thank you
Fantastic food, served very with a smile.
A really lovely meal out with the family on mother’s day.
An enjoyable evening with good food and service. Staff welcoming and attentive.The portions were generous and presented well. However at the prices charged a little more attention to details like lightning the table candles does help. My main observation would be that there was no management to oversee the evening and we felt that some interaction would have made us feel that our custom was more appreciated.
Can't beat a lovely dinner next to a roaring log fire!
Excellent lunch. Staff were very polite and helpful. Our son has allergies and the staff were very receptive to this. Food was superb. Local pigeon with black pudding truly excellent. Pork belly was delicious. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and will definitely return again. Highly recommend!
Great place to be taken to on Mother’s Day; great food, good size portions, good service and even the carpark was managed well by staff.
Our second time visiting The Chequers for a family meal in the last few months, and it did not disappoint. Good ingredients, cooked well with a menu that offers different options than you usually come across with other pubs. The staff are really friendly and the service is great, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others, and will most definitely be returning - thanks to all of the team at The Chequers!
Very nice place. Food nice and staff really helpful.
We love it here, very talented chef, great menu, never had a bad meal. The one less star for atmosphere was because someone had a dog who barked randomly making us all jump - rather annoying!!
Very good. 2nd visit and will keep coming back
I think the pigeon starter needs to be put on the menu permanently. It is a fantastic dish, just don’t over cook the quail egg!
Food and staff always lovely Sunday lunch is the best around 😊
Absolutely delicious Sunday roast and the Guinness and Chocolate Brownie was a revelation!
Often feels quite cold in the Pub especially with people coming in and out of the main door. The whole place needs better heating and maybe a draught curtain for the door. Food and service are good.
Very good lunch time meal. Two courses for £12.00.
Catf fault as.usual
The food and welcome here are consistently good - a rare find!
