Nestled in the Hambleden valley is the Chequers Inn sitting in the heart of the village of Fingest. A beautiful brick and flint public house set in Oxfordshire countryside offering a homely and rural pub feel, throughout all seasons.
The couple at the helm are Jaxon and Emma Keedwell, who have been running a Brakspears' pub for a number of years and have garnered a loyal following. Jaxon is in charge of the kitchen and loves creating simple but well executed fresh food. He utilises his knowledge gleaned from over 20 years cooking to source his food, and to employ local people in order to give his customers a “taste of Oxfordshire”. Accompanied by his wife Emma and the team, the atmosphere is cosy and the pub is thriving in the Oxfordshire countryside. The Chequers pub is a well-regarded retreat by the locals and the garden is the best kept secret in the valley.
