The Chequers Inn in Chipping Norton is a really delightful village pub with a town atmosphere. The Chequers is ideally placed next to The Theatre and serves some well kept beers - as a Fuller's House, the Chiswick Bitter, London Pride, ESB and a seasonally changing guest beer are all served in tip top condition. The Chequers Inn has been awarded the Cask Marque of excellence to prove it! Alongside the beer The Chequers serves an interesting and well thought out menu all day. North Oxon CAMRA Pub of the Year 2013!


The Chequers is 

the North Oxon 
CAMRA Pub of the Year 2013! 



Originally known as the "Anchor" and dating back to medieval times, The Chequers Inn in Chipping Norton in the Cotswolds was built in the late 1500's and offers history, tradition and character as well as a great Cotswolds welcome!

Located next to Chipping Norton Theatre, The Chequers Inn is very popular with theatregoers and is also a popular, relaxed and informal meeting place for private diners, families and business guests.


The Bar

The warmth of the open log fire at The Chequers Inn creates a cosy and welcoming atmosphere for all guests. The Chequers has a great town pub feel whilst losing none of its rural charms!

Recently awarded the Cask Marque of Excellence, The Chequers Inn is a Fullers Pub, offering a fully stocked bar including Chiswick Bitter, London Pride & ESB as well as ciders, wines and spirits and seasonally changing guest beers.


The Restaurant

Formally the old courtyard, the recently refurbished restaurant and conservatory seat up to thirty diners. There is space for a further 30 in the former barn, creating a huge area for parties and meetings. Both areas can be hired together or separately and configured to the client’s requirements.


The kitchen offers a terrific range of traditional pub food, as well as something a little different! Choose from pub classics such as Ribeye steaks or local sausages, or go for something more exotic with Chicken Basques or the hugely popular Tapas Selection, ideal for sharing!  The kitchen can cater for all dietary requirements, so be sure to mention any special needs at the time - and of course, with such a popular Cotswold pub, it's a VERY good idea to book!
