About the Pub

Down a narrow medieval passageway off the High Street, the Chequers is a fine old pub, much of which dates back to the early 16th century when a moneylender's house was rebuilt as a tavern. Note the fine carvings and the ceiling in the lower bar. Now in the hands of Nicholson’s, the pub has built a reputation for a fine selection of real ales as well as for its food. All of Oxford’s College crests are displayed on the ceiling, except for Corpus Christi, as the crest displayed is that of Corpus Cambridge! Now has an upstairs bar with three hand pumps in addition to the hand pumps in the main bar.
