Sorry to say this pub is now closed. The local village of Elston trying to buy it so we can have the community come together again. It was a really good pub with Pizza Fridays and Sunday lunch and other meals served.

The Chequers has been shut as the landlord wants to convert it into a private dwelling, sadly this leaves this charming village publess, at least for now

This is a great little pub that is the heart of the village. Serves great beer and very good pub grub.Well worth a visit and does very nice Sunday lunches in the winter months.

This pub is the worst pub on Hucknall's High Street. The staff are miserable, the pub itself is dingy, dark and cold. There is absolutely zero atmosphere and apart from a few 'die hard' locals, the pub is mostly empty Monday to Friday all day...More

I am sorry that Lee had such a bad experience of the pub in Hucknall, if he wants good beer and a lovely friendly pub with real fires and beer brewed on site then he needs to make a trip to The Chequers Inn, Elston!...More
