Chequers, The

The Chequers

The Chequers is the epitome of a modern London gastro-boozer. All the classic elements are here: salvaged furniture, hearty food and plenty of good beer. Actually, The Chequers is particularly good when it comes to beer, with the likes of Redemption, Late Knights and Dark Star regulars on the handpumps. Keg-wise, you might find Meantime or Lagunitas while Beavertown, The Kernel and Williams Bros lurk in the fridge. The opening hours are a little unusual: 5pm for much of the week.
