Small, friendly old-world down-to-earth pub in the heart of the galleries area of St James’s, with outside drinking areas at the front, in Masons Yard at the side and in the square at the back. 2 terrestrial TVs. It has been a licensed premise from at least 1732 when Henry Mason, the then occupant who had lived there since 1717, was granted a victualler's licence for an unnamed tavern there. It was known as the Mason's Arms and had changed to the Chequers by 1751. Note that in common with many pubs of this age this one has fairly steep stairs down to the WCs.
