The Lower Chequer

The Lower Chequer is tucked down Crown Bank in the quaint town of Sandbach, a thriving market town most well-known for its ancient Saxon Crosses on market square which is a stones throw away from our Tap.

The immense history of the pub dates as far back as 1570, making it the oldest building in Sandbach. It is said that the ‘chequered board’ was used to help educate customers to count their money, and the old landlords of the pub were the money lenders to the locals. An ancient horseshoe is nailed to the bar, a luck link that spans 400 years. The pub was also one of Cheshire’s best known coaching inns on the main route from Manchester to London.
The town centre location makes it the perfect local! The quirky layout of the pub has a central bar so you are always in the midst of everything whilst hosting your locals with the full line up of Joule’s beer. The Lower Chequer is fortunate to have two great outdoor areas, a front beer terrace and a back beer garden, perfect to soak up the sun with a pint of Green Monkey. While the cosy bar areas with log burners are perfect to nestle away during those cold winter nights. The site will also include a plug and play music system, this removes the need for lugging about kit, long sound checks and maintains the fantastic quality of music the regulars expect. Acoustic Sunday sessions, a perfect way to end the week.
The site is scheduled for a small refurbishment inside and an update to both outdoor areas.
