My husband and I stayed for two nights. The room was acceptable, bed comfortable and bathroom clean. Carpets in the room was a little tired but as this is a dog friendly hotel it's understandable. We ate in the restaurant both evenings. Mainly Italian but specials are available . The food was good, portions massive but very good value for... More

The B&B function of this property is very good. Was extremely pleased to find clean and tidy room with suitable facilities. Lacked a few leaflets etc about local area, which would have been nice to have seen. Good value for money

Although we didn't stay at the Inn we booked in for an evening meal. We have been visiting Thornham for our summer holiday for the last six years and have always enjoyed visiting the 'Coach House' for food and drinks. We were met with friendly bar staff and shown to our table and given menus to browse. We had had... More

We have stayed at the Old Coach House previously but not since it was refurbished and renamed "The Chequers", so had anticipated changes for the better in terms of the menu, rooms, etc., however we were disappointed. The room was tired but clean, however the bathroom left a lot to be desired with the previous occupant's shampoo still in the... More

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.

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
