More Information

Exciting refurbishment planned!

We are planning a full £338,000 refurbishment that touches every part of the Old Chequers. We will be redecorating every inch of the interior of the pub as well as making major improvements to the kitchen and toilets. This will develop a fantastic site with great appeal to the key demographics of the area. The pub will benefit from new signage and new paint. We will also be upgrading the beer garden and side patio. We will also add new festoon lighting and feature lighting in the trees.

Beautiful countryside location!

The Old Chequers is based in Gaddensen Row, Hemel Hempstead. The pub itself is located in small hamlet just outside Hemel Hempstead and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. This is a well populated area, with 293,000 adults living within a 20-minute drive time of the pub and consists mainly of high affluence bands. The pub has limited competition, with only two direct competitors, but the pubs all new look and offer make the Old Chequers stand out.

Tap into this pub’s potential!

The Old Chequers has the potential to be the go-to destination, with its new food offer and complete refurbishment. The beer garden and patio will be a major draw for locals and those travelling from slightly further afield. A great range of drinks and a varied, quality food offer will appeal to a positive and ambitious operator who is experienced in the pub trade and knows what it takes to run a great pub with great food.

When refurbished, The Old Chequers will appeal to a very broad spectrum of customers, including:
Local Residents
Friends & Colleagues

When refurbished, The Old Chequers will offer:
A quality drinks range including premium & favourite beers, spirits, wines, no & low & soft drinks
A varied food menu offering local produce
Occasional live entertainment
Wine tastings-Gin Tastings
Food & Drink pairings
Cask ale events
