I have stayed at the Old Coach House many times over the past 15 years or so. It is now known as The Chequers and like The Lifeboat Inn bought by Marco Pierre-White. Fair to say it had become tired and run down and some repainting has taken place but the downstairs decor has not added to the ambience. On... More

Booked in for three nights bed and breakfast from 01/07/14. Given room 10 (should be re-named 101). checked out before breakfast the following morning and refused to pay. Insisted manageress come to room to see faults. Ventilator from kitchen noisy and smelly! When that stopped at 9.30 we became aware of noise from coolers and freezers. No bulb in light... More

I booked my stay with Groupon way back in February as that was the earliest booking we could get. I looked the menu regularly before the trip as the package included dinner and I was excited about my Marco Pierre White meal. I was amazed to find out that the name had changed and we did not get an email... More

We were in Norfolk over Easter and this pub was just down the road from where we were staying. Decided to pop down one night and see if we could get a table, reassured that if we couldn't we could get a take away. The pub was full, which wasn't a surprise given it was a bank holiday weekend. While... More

We had originally tried to book the Lifeboat Inn (part of the same group) but they were busy and they pointed us in this direction. Previous reviewers are correct, they are undergoing a refurbishment, but when you change the name and don't tell people that have booked using the old companies name, then it becomes tricky trying to find the...

Once the major refurbishment has been completed this would be a decent place to stay. The dinners and breakfasts were of good quality and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room (6) was reasonable, but the bathroom was not particularly user-friendly. The sloping ceiling made getting in and out of the bath (no shower) somewhat difficult, so we didn't... More

We've just come back from two nights on a Living Social deal. The Old Coach House (but actually the building next door named The Chequers when you're looking in the dark!) is undergoing a massive refurbishment so comments about shower cubicles and carpets will probably be obsolete in a few weeks. The size of the rooms varies greatly. We were... More

We booked this as part of a Groupon deal and have to say that we both had a lovely stay, however we are glad that we done this as part of the deal as if we had paid the advertised amount we would of been more disappointed. The staff all very polite and couldn't do enough for you. The food... More

Another Groupon success! Lovely room - warm and comfortable. Lovely helpful staff. Fabulous breakfasts and a lovely three course dinner. We honestly couldn't find fault with this lovely little coastal retreat. The only downside was no wi-fi in the cottage annex we were in, but I understand this is being resolved imminently so all is good.

We spent 2 nights here on a groupon deal and had a great time. Sure the place could do with a bit of titivating but the room was clean and the bed comfy and huge! Our room was over the bar and slightly noisy with a very creaky floor but we were so tired it didn't keep us awake. The... More
