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

Good Pub Guide Recommended

Busy and friendly hotel with a bustling bar, four real ales, bar and more elaborate food and smart restaurant; comfortable bedrooms
The friendly bar at the heart of this busy hotel and restaurant continues to thrive as a welcoming local. 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. Greene King Old Speckled Hen, Rebellion Smuggler, XT4 from the new XT Brewing Company and a changing guest 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

As well as afternoon tea and a two and three-course set menu, the good, inventive food includes sandwiches, potted ham hock with pea custard and toasted raisin brioche, beetroot salmon gravadlax with watercress coulis, lemon jam, watermelon and pickled onions, chicken caesar salad with anchovies, cumberland sausage with onion gravy, thai-style fishcakes, calves liver and bacon with red onion gravy, loin of cod with black pudding and sweet potato purée, roast lamb rump with rosemary jus and puddings like bitter chocolate and toffee tart with rosemary ice-cream and strawberry and rhubarb compote tortellini.

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