Chequers, Wooburn Common, Buckinghamshire, HP10 0JQ – The Good Pub Guide

Good Pub Guide Recommended

Busy, friendly hotel with a bustling bar, four real ales, bar food and more elaborate dishes in smart restaurant; comfortable bedrooms
Despite quite an emphasis on the hotel and restaurant side here, the friendly bar is the heart of the place and has plenty of chatty locals. It feels nicely pubby with low beams, standing timbers and alcoves, characterful rickety furniture and comfortably lived-in sofas on bare boards, a bright log-effect gas fire, pictures, plates, a two-man saw and tankards. In contrast, the bar to the left, with its dark brown leather sofas at low tables on wooden floors, feels plain and modern; the smart restaurant has high-backed black leather dining chairs around white-clothed tables. Rebellion IPA and Smuggler and St Austell Tribute on handpump, a good sizeable wine list (with a dozen by the glass), and a fair range of malt whiskies and brandies; background music. The spacious garden, set away from the road, has seats around cast-iron tables and summer barbecues.

Good Pub Guide Food

Highly thought-of food includes sandwiches, chicken and ham hock with fig chutney, scallops with confit pork belly and champagne butter sauce, cumberland sausage with onion gravy, venison with celeriac rösti and blackberry jus, sea bream with mussel, leek and spiced crab broth, and puddings such as bakewell tart with caramelised cherries and sticky toffee pudding; they also offer a two- and three-course set lunch menu and afternoon teas (must book in advance).

Bar food times: 12 - 2.30, 6 - 9.30 (light snacks all day) ; all day weekends
