Seating outside under a large canopy. Very efficient service, food arrived very quickly and was delicious - chicken Sunday roast - loads of food and good value for money. Would thoroughly recommend.

We stopped off for lunch while on a circular walk through Ettington. The pub had really gone the extra mile to make the garden a comfortable eating area. We all thought the food was excellent - my cod and chips was superb. Really light batter and very chunky, tasty fish. Definitely top marks all round and even better for being our first meal out since the pubs reopened. Now we need to find an excuse to go back!

The only issue was that I'd asked to have a table where there was few steps as mum is 93 and has a stroller. We were seated at the top of the garden and had quite a few steps to go up! Other than that a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Lovely staff, great food, thank you.

Was very busy so service was a little slow but can’t complain- they did really well and great to be open! Was a bit chilly so heaters would’ve been good but we took blankets so all was fine.

Service totally unacceptable - A grumpy welcome when we arrived and very slow. service - 20 mins before we were able to order a drink and a further 10 mins before we were able to order food. The staff were not following Covid rules. The staff were not wearing face masks at any time whilst we were there and they were continually walking past our table. When the food eventually arrived we rushed it and quickly got out of there. We will never return.

Was painfully obvious on arrival that you didn’t have enough staff. Service was extremely slow although numerous apologies accompanied the brief appearances. Was not accompanied to our table but pointed out to where it was located. The two servers were running around like headless chickens and many tables received apologies. I ordered medium rare steak and received medium to well....canned mushrooms are a disgrace for the prices that are charged! We felt sorry for the lady who served us who was doing an impossible job. We did not receive a good experience, as we have done in the past, and both service and quality were lacking in abundance. A lot of work needed if you are to retain repeat custom. Very disappointed in the Chequers Inn!

The garden has been prepared very well and is as safe as it could be for covid. We use this pub due to its location for a meet up with friends. We all like the pub and always have a good reception. Food and drink are very good although the selection is a bit limited due to the current situation.
