CAMRA backs Sandbach pub
A SANDBACH pub has scooped a coveted award from the Campaign for Real Ale – CAMRA.
The Lower Chequers Inn on the cobbles – the oldest building in Sandbach – was recognised as CAMRA’s Champion Pub of Cheshire.
Owners, James Mason and Elizabeth Cooke, were visited by Sandbach MP Fiona Bruce to celebrate the honour.
Elizabeth and James said: “We are thrilled. For such a small pub to have gone from difficult circumstances only two and a half years ago to Cheshire Pub of the Year is fantastic.
“It is like a lifetime achievement in only two and a half years. We had a fantastic weekend with the events in the town and the sunshine topping it off. It was lovely that Fiona was able to pop in and brilliant that she was so interested in what we do.
“We are a traditional pub, we don’t serve shots or play loud music, it’s a place where people can come and have a drink and chat together.”
