CHEQUERS - NETHERGATE - 1981

Chequers position in the Nethergate was reflected by those who used to drink there - half were townies and half were students.
It opened around 1980 and was a cheery, civilised place to mingle - even on the nights it was crammed.
As well as a jukebox up on the wall, it had "Commedia dell'Arte" themed paintings hanging up around the pub....Pulcinella and the rest of the posse!
Its canopy and interior were done in typical 80's ever popular green, hence this caption colour!
