The Chequers is situated right in the middle of Hucknall town centre on the high street. It is open all day noon til 11pm mon to weds (free pool all day on these days), thurs noon until midnight (karaoke starting at 8pm)fri noon until midnight (party night starting at 8pm) sat noon until midnight (again party night but also live bands on some saturday nights)sun open until midnight with karaoke starting at 3pm in the afternoon.
The usual beers are on draught carling, strongbow, guiness etc (no real ales though). the wine selection is limited though.Plenty of room to dance with tables on the edge of the dancefloor and further standing room by the pool table which is covered on entertainment nights. Further seating is available on the right as you enter the front door and at the rear of the pub plus outside seating.
During the day the pub makes a nice refuge from shopping. It does get very busy at the weekends and although there are your usual incidents the pub is very well martialled by the security staff. The music is usually top of the charts stuff and can be very loud. The live groups are usually heavy rock.I've always found the pub enjoyable to be in and Lee is a very good landlord, very approachable. Bar service is very good even when busy. The toilets can get messy but are usually quite clean and presentable when i've been in. All in all a decent pub.
