Description: Set in the middle of some of the Isle of Wight's most beautiful countryside, the historic Chequers Inn was once a Customs and Excise house. Now under the ownership of Island born couple, Sam and Donna Shaw, it is a vibrant and welcoming pub/restaurant much loved by locals and visitors alike. Dedicated to serving good, honest food and drink within a family friendly environment, it is a must for anyone looking for delicious food and drink served in relaxed and pleasant surroundings.

Went for a family birthday & thoroughly enjoyed the food from the carvery. Daughter also had a lot of fun in the children's play area, for me the best one on the island in a pub. Great day

“Average pub food, at above average prices in an atmospheric setting”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We stopped here at 6pm on a Sunday, looking for some tasty pub grub. Extensive menu, but all a little dear. When the food arrived I could see that it was basic fayre, served in a reasonable fashion, but by no means was it anything other than very standard stuff. I had sausages and mash with onion gravy. Potatoes were stodgy and the onions had seen maybe 3 minutes in the pan. The kids had burgers, and they seemed tasty enough, but looked like burger van type patties. Overall, a lot of money for what it was.

“Unfortunately wasn't great”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Had the carvery and was disappointed. The beef was very fatty and the veg was really over cooked. But the kids had a fab time in their play area outside.
