Roberto Campese left this review about Il Cicchetto

Hi there, I'm Roberto and with my girlfriend Marilena we are the proud owners of il Cicchetto. We took over the bar last June 2011 and step by step we are trying to improve our small business. We have now differents kinds of drought beer ( Stella black, kozel, vedett extra blond, beck's vier, Guinness extra cold and Sambrooks wandle ale).
we also have bottles of beer and ciders and international wine list. We do cocktails and Italian food ( homemade pasta, cakes, sandwiches, pizzas, bruschette and bar food).
We kept the nice pub shell and created a typical Italian bar inside.
So, just pop in and visit us!

Steve of N21 left this review about Chequers

Very small Victorian corner pub which has been closed more than it’s been open in recent years.
Currently open and trading, as About a year ago it was taken over again and is now called Il Cicchetto and owned and run by a couple of Italian gents.
Unfortunately the very nice tiled Victorian exterior (with the original Chequers pub sign still hanging) is now not matched by the lounge bar style interior makeover that has happened at some stage.
As well as the usual chrome taps dispensing San Miguel, Carlsberg, and Guinness there’s one lone Adnams Broadside, but this has been reverse clipped on the two occasions I’ve bothered to wander in, and I got the impression it wasn’t likely to have anything passing through it any time soon.
So this is very much now a small lounge bar inside a traditional pub skin, and as such not my sort of thing. But I hope it works for the current owners and they can make a go of it, because better utilised than shut, if only for continuing the external Victorian facade and tiling.
