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
WI annual Christmas meal was held at the chequers for second year running. Staff were so helpful throughout the booking process and particularly attentive on the night. Food was superb and lovely variety of vegetables,well there were certainly no complaints!! The salmon and monkfish were delicious!!
It was really nice having the back room all to ourselves. I cannot fault the service. I appreciate not being charged (except for the deposits) for the last minute cancellations.
Thank you and the staff at Chequers Inn for a beautiful meal and excellent service on Saturday lunchtime. The atmosphere in the dinning room with our separate table was just what we wanted and everyone said how much they enjoyed the food. Would definitely recommend you and we will be back.
We had a lovely pre-Christmas family meal together. The pub exudes a warm, relaxed atmosphere and the food was amazing!
Absolutely outstanding! We're a charity called Pets As Therapy. We've just moved to Chalgrove and didn't know where to book for our Christmas meal. The Chequers was recommended by Jennings of Garsington. It was beyond excellent on all fronts. The Granary's a lovely room; everyone's starter, main and dessert was beautifully cooked, presented and served. Skilled chefs; lovely front-of-house staff, very competitive pricing. Congratulations- can't wait to go back! Thank you so much to you all for looking after us so well.
We had a great evening, the staff were really attentive and the food was delicious, thank you 😊
Excellent food and wine, I would highly recommend The Chequers
Ample portions of good food in an atmospheric setting.
I love this venue, the atmosphere is lovely, really friendly, and the best food for miles around!
A lovely old pub which comes up with the goods despite being very busy on a Sunday. Lots of families there enjoying the convivial atmosphere

Consistently good service & food. Always made to feel welcome even with 2 spaniels!
The Chequers (Mark and his team) recently hosted a celebration dinner party for me and my family and friends. Mark's assistance with the planning and then the execution of this personally very important event was fantastic. Down to the finest detail Mark and his team delivered a truly memorable evening and fabulous food!
Lovely relaxed evening. The staff are great.
A great dining experience yet again - catered for our babies needs brilliantly. Thanks!
Staff at the Chequeres are so welcoming and friendly, and the food matches the service, we will definitely be back soon. Also the pricing is spot on.
