In the ancient Oxfordshire village of Cassington the Chequers is a pleasant and welcoming inn offering good food three cask ales and comfortable accommodation. The L shaped bar is decorated in contemporary style balanced by a flagstone floor wood burning fire and traditional furniture. The food is of a high standard and includes British classics and Mediterranean specials. The recently refurbished bedrooms are clean and well presented and have exceptionally powerful showers. The English breakfast is recommended. Cassington is a few miles north west of Oxford and a good base for local sightseeing.
