What a lovely place. We went here for the first time on Sunday. Staff were great and food was very good. Best roast beef I can remember eating! Very dog friendly. We will certainly be back, highly recommend.

I loved it here my only criticism is I had the mushroom tagliatelle it was very runny! It was like a soup with pasta in it! Very tasty! It’s also very cold in the pub everyone sits with the coats on!
We will return as it was excellent

Very disappointed in this, went there looking forward to a decent steak but the meat was tough and tasteless. Chips nothing special and salad leaves hadn't been dried properly so the overall taste was watery dressing. The boy who served us was also behind the bar and was wearing a tee shirt covered in stains ... not appealing from the outset. Wouldn't go back.

As always a great menu and fantastic food. Service is always good and the pub has a great atmosphere. Tempted to move to Churchill so the pub is with walking distance! Without doubt one of my favourite pubs.

Attention to detail in every aspect & with well rehearsed ease, The Chequers at Churchill is surely a contender for ‘Greatest Pub in the Land’. Always fabulous, creative, attentive, happy people & atmosphere - wonderful food & drink - beautiful decor & lighting - A place to truly relax, enjoy & unwind. Have fun.. I always do!

Great food, great atmosphere. Service a bit sketchy- individually the service was good but wasn’t joined up, not very attentive. The service doesn’t match the standard of food.

The waiters didn’t appear to be trained they leant across guests to serve others on the other side of the table. The food was expensive compared to the quantity will not go again

Recently moved into the area and have now eaten here twice, once during the week and once for a Sunday Roast. Genuinely excellent on both occasions. The choices are excellent as is the service. Nothing negative to say at all here.

Chequers is a pub we return to every time we visit the Cotswolds. It has a lovely buzzy atmosphere every time we go and the food is consistently really good. Highly recommend.

Lovely pub, warm welcome, delightful ambience, friendly and efficient service and our starters were excellent. However, 3 of our group ordered Welsh Rarebit which was, alas, not only very unappealing to look at but the cheese topping, in addition to not being quite hot enough, was virtually fluid and the toast underneath it therefore completely soggy - sorry, but it wasn’t up to much. Hungry after a long drive and after such a promising start to our lunch, this was very disappointing.

Best sunday roast we’ve ever had in a pub. Cannot fault one thing on my plate. This is the second sunday roast we’ve had here & the first one was brilliant but they exceeded themselves on our second visit. Lovely kind helpful staff, roaring fire, dogs, and amazing food & wine.

Loved the Chequers. It was recommended by a work colleague and we were very happy with the recommendation. The Chequers has a great atmosphere, good layout so you aren't squashed right next to the table next to you and the food is amazing! Also we liked it as they didn't rush as which so often happens these days. We will definitely go there when we are next in the Cotswolds.

The food was lovely and Vincent and his team were very accommodating. We were the only ones in the restaurant so whilst it was fab to be able to speak to each other it lacked the ambience which it would have had on a busier evening. We went back for drinks the next day and it was much buzzier. Would recommend it and am disappointed not to be there for their Beaujolais Nouveau experience

Welcoming staff who were very dog friendly. The food was delicious and was served quickly (perhaps because we had a 12 noon booking on a Sunday so first in the door), which made my mother very happy. Beautiful setting. We only wished we were local to be able to go here regularly for food & enjoy having a drink by their cosy fire. Highly recommend.

I have chosen the same meal before, the cheese souffle was still excellent, but the duck salad was nowhere near as good, which is a real shame, my husband's burger was also a bit dry. Shame, as we love it here.

Great atmosphere, and sublime food. We lunched on a busy Sunday, and were sat upstairs in the private "for hire" room. Downstairs roaring log fire - which will definitely coax us for a return visit! and lots of diners accompanied by beautiful, well behaved dogs. Gluten Free options were readily available, simply ask... Highly recommend!
