Steve C left this review about The Chequers Inn

Chequers is a single room pub that feels more like a large living room with a bar in the far left hand corner. There is a standard draught selection and the three hand pumps were drawing Forty Niner, Hobgoblin and Addlestone’s cider. Food is served and the roasts on Sunday are available from midday until 18:00 and cost £9.50 including ‘afters’. Fondue parties can be pre-booked for those that like cheese that much. The ale, Fosters and Kronenburg are £3 a pint Monday to Friday from 16:00 until 19:00 during the ‘easy hours’. There was a rowdy group of students in during my visit on Monday evening, but this is the livelier part of town so this was to be expected. There was still a friendly atmosphere and I was made to feel welcome by the friendly governor. There is no television, but some background music was playing at an acceptable level.

I wouldn’t go out of my way to wander down Preston Street again, but if I did this would be my venue of choice.
