Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Mildenhall Chequers

Closed between 1840 and 1920

St Andrews La

The Chequers was a beerhouse.

The location of St Andrew's Lane is unknown; it doesn't appear on any modern maps and no other reference to it can be found. Perhaps it's actually St Andrew's Street?

Footnote

The chequerboard as a pub sign may have its origins from Roman taverns when a board game like draughts was often advertised and played. It may also be an ancient sign to indicate the landlord was a money-lender or could offer secure storage for a travellers valuables.
