As we’re sure you know, pubs could open from the 4th July 2020 after a forced closure due to COVID-19.
Many of our pubs are now open but we recommend you check the pub’s website or social media accounts to check the details as there may be reduced opening hours.
Things are subject to change and as pubs find their way in these uncertain times, we ask for your patience and to check each pub’s social media accounts for the latest news.

Nestled in the Hambleden valley is the Chequers Inn sitting in the heart of the village of Fingest. A beautiful brick and flint public house set in Oxfordshire countryside offering a homely and rural pub feel, throughout all seasons. The couple at the helm are Jaxon and Emma Keedwell, who have been running a Brakspears' pub for a number of years and have garnered a loyal following. Jaxon is in charge of the kitchen and loves creating simple but well executed fresh food. He utilises his knowledge gleaned from over 20 years cooking to source his food, and to employ local people in order to give his customers a “taste of Oxfordshire”. Accompanied by his wife Emma and the team, the atmosphere is cosy and the pub is thriving. The Chequers pub is a well-regarded retreat by the locals and the garden is the best kept secret in the valley.
