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
Great meal, and excellent service. Shame you’re not doing the Bavarian coffee any more that was delicious last time. We’ll be back soon
Really friendly and welcoming to families. Consistently delicious food - our go to for a family meal out 🙂
Food was pleasant
A wonderful lunch again, the roast beef really is the best.
The food was very tasty except for the “artisan” bread which was tasteless and disappointing so was left. The service was good and we appreciated being moved to a bigger table. A very pleasant and long lunch was had by the whole table.
A consistently high standard of food, extremely tasty every visit is top notch. Service is very friendly, genuine accommodating and well paced, you never feel really rushed! Quality!!!
Excellent evening with great food
We used The Chequers to provide canapes for a celebratory company lunch. They delivered them to our office in Chalgrove on presentation dishes. The canapes looked beautiful and tasted delicious. We had many positive comments from our clients who joined us for the lunch. Thank you to the chefs at The Chequers.
Had a Sunday roast lunch. Beef and green veg very good. Roast potatoes not so good. Probably frozen rather than fresh.
Absolutely lovely pub, we came with our 1 week old baby and 3 year old and everyone was very happy!
Very good meal.
Thank you all for making our anniversary a bit special with excellent service and a lovely meal.
Lovely Sunday lunch, possibly the best roast pork I have ever had. Lovely pub, and great service. I will definitely be back.
I think the price of a bottle of wine at £20 is a little high otherwise the food and service is excellent.
Wonderful Sunday lunch, almost as good as home made, thank you!
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
