Chequers re-opens in Maresfield

The historic Chequers in Maresfield has re-opened following a six week closure for major refurbishment. Cllr Ian Smith, Mayor of Uckfield, was guest of honour at an official ceremony to re-open the pub and hotel.

The refit has transformed the Chequers, with all areas upgraded including the bar, restaurant and bedrooms, with new furnishings and modern décor, and a change to the layout. The number of bedrooms at the hotel has also increased to 17, with four new bedrooms created.
