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. The name Chequers was first recorded in 1605. Note the fine carvings and the ceiling in the lower bar. Now in the hands of Nicholson’s, the pub always has a good selection of real ales albeit generally mainstream offerings. 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 as well as hand pumps in the main bar.
