|I’ve always been a bit dubious of brown signs on the roads indicating public houses of note as the establishments themselves tend to be rather hit and miss. The Chequers has this poisoned chalice from the A40 heading in (or out) of Oxford. Ostensibly an inn inasmuch as it offers accommodation, the focus appears to be on the food side. Perhaps this takes the focus off other areas as I found the Hooky Gold too cool to be able to discern any flavour, the music dreadful, the door to the toilets crying out in pain for a drop of WD40, and driving out through Cassington one wonders why the Red Lion wasn’t bestowed the ‘suggested’ honour on the A-road.|

|Actually a modern pub but to the casual eye it looks like an old Cotswold building so blends in well. Recently taken over by Youngs so maybe it's improved, as I thought it wasn't bad. Comfy leather seats, and chess sets dotted around to use. They seem to be going for the smart-casual type look. Beer choice limited to Youngs Best and of course now Bombardier, so would be nice to see a few more. If you're in the area not a bad bet.|
