The Chepstow has been refurbished and renamed the Chesterfield and is now under the management of the company responsible for The Ebury and The Running Horse. Like its siblings, the Chesterfield is an upmarket place, more restaurant with a bar, than it is a pub (or even just bar) and consequently is less-well suited to casual, informal drinking. This is especially true if you're looking for esoteric real ales or a place for a quiet pint and a natter. As you'd expect it's a smart, sophisticated place, the food is good, the wine is decent and, it has to be said, there is bottled beer to be had. But, to be honest, the new Chesterfield's raison d'Ítre effectively puts it beyond the scope of our guide - it's no longer a pub and we include it here, for completeness and to inform those visitors who may be seeking the old Chepstow of the fate of the old place.

Now renamed the Chesterfield as the latest addition to the First Restaurant Group stable - great improvement over previous moribund incarnation even though it's very early days. Properly demarcated drinking and eating areas give it back the 'local' ambience if just popping in for a pint (still Landlord - although plans to feature guest, bottled ales in the pipeline according to the friendly and informed bar manager). No point competing with the renowned Assaggi restaurant upstairs in the culinary stakes so will be interesting to see how they develop their menu or if they just stick to standard gastro pub fare. Good, reasonably priced wine list.

A welcome return to form!
