I love this place. Great atmosphere, clientele are the hipsters and those of class. The décor is shabby chic with Cotswold charm and rural living - stuffed deer heads, shooting magazines, shabby chesterfields. The bar stocks everything and the service and staff are as if out of London - not like a local parochial pub. Food is good but its... More

We visited about 3 weeks ago using a Groupon voucher. This place looks nothing like the pictures that Groupon advertised. We were seated in a dark dingy corner next to a fire which wasn't lit. Staff were dressed very casually - it was difficult to tell who were the staff and who were the customers! All in t shirts and... More

Went here with a party of 10 for Sunday lunch having increased the booking from 8 to 10 the night before. We were 15 minutes late getting there but the table had been held and the welcome and service was very good. We had several different meals across the party and the food all arrived at the same time and... More

We have eaten here many many times over the years as we live locally, unfortunately the last meal we had was disgusting (& cold) and the pub now plays host to being a creche on the weekends. If you don't mind hordes of ravening children running screaming around the tables with the parents completely absenting themselves from any parenting then... More

My wife & I had lunch yesterday with friends who'd been there before and recommended it. And we weren't disappointed. Three of us had the delicious roast beef although our contrary friend opted for the pork. The meat, potatoes and vegetables were perfectly cooked. The service was prompt, quick and good. I had the Sharp's Atlantic bitter, which was very... More

This pub had a great atmosphere with the smell of a wood fire. There was standard pub grub on the menu but it was excellent especially the sausages with bubble and squeak and gravy. The is not a specific children's menu but they do smaller sized meals from the main menu. These were half the price but were still massive.... More

In the picture perfect village of Churchill, The Chequers is everything a traditional pub should be with its pretty Cotswold stone exterior and a muddy landrover outside. Except, step inside this pub and you'll find something much more intriguing. A heady mix of the old and new. Expect modern cocktails to sit alongside local ales, and a menu that is packed with seasonally inspired dishes.Enjoy locally brewed beer propped at our bar with friends and family, or rustic dishes in our restaurant using the very best British ingredients in some well-loved classics like our Twice Baked Cheddar Soufflé, Bobby Battered Market Fish and our unmissable steaks cooked to perfection in Josper ovens.
