Micropub invaded by Newcastle Sword Men

We had a great day Saturday lots of regulars and visitors alike but the visit from The Sallyport Rapper Dancers was a real highlight. If you ever want to be invaded by guys brandishing swords these are the ones you want. Chequers is not the largest of venues but they certainly made the most of it.

We are open!

The doors of Chequers Micropub Pub finally opened yesterday at 1.30 pm and we had a great session with most seats taken through to 11.00 pm. Plenty of new friends were made and the atmosphere was terrific. Thanks to all who made the first day so memorable including the visitors to Beverley from Bristol and Scotland. All 5 Ales took a hammering and all were well received.  We will be open for a lunchtime session at 12.00 today but the Dark Star Hophead and Thornbridge Jaipur might not last too long. Cheers

Today is the Day

Still got plenty to do this morning but we will be open today.
Please be gentle with us it is only a small venue and and a lot of new ropes to learn. Look forward to seeing you all over the next couple of weeks. The bar areas are all looking good but the first floor still needs work. The call for ale won through and the toilet tiling and flooring will have to wait. Cheers

Off Our Heads

Sorry for the lack of information over the last few days but we have been putting in long hours to try to get open this coming weekend. The ground floor is almost complete but the first floor especially the toilets still require plenty of work.
The cellar cabinet is working but we can't put ale in as the chiller unit will only work at +5 to -5 when the casks want to be 9 or 10. We hope that can be resolved today and Ale orders can be placed.
