We stayed here for two nights in July and had a really good weekend. The property has been renamed 'The Chequers' and now advertises itself as a Marco Pierre White pub and restaurant. Maybe because of the high expectations associated with this brand, people have been disappointed with the furnishings and quality of food. It is certainly not luxury, but... More

Booked for two nights. Endured one then booked out. The room felt grubby. The furniture was scruffy. The carpet was dirty around the edges. The bathroom had black mould on the blind where it had not been cleaned. An attempt had been made to remove the mould from the shower cubicle but this was not thorough and it looked dirty,... More

We stayed here on a groupon deal which included an evening meal. For the money we paid it was ok but I would have been very upset if I had paid full price and stayed here. Firstly they were doing renovations which we not warned in advance about. This meant there was a lot of noise during the day, no... More

We visited on 20th June for an 8pm table. The place was not excessively busy but we were told on arrival that food would be 20-30 minutes. Ok, its 8pm, what else do you do? You wait. Menus were brought to us, and about 10 mins later we were asked if we'd like drinks. We ordered a bottle of wine... More

It was my Mother in Laws birthday last week so I thought it would be a good idea to revisit the Chequers for a celebration meal. I last visited at the end of April and was particularly taken with the lovely plate of crisp and fiery whitebait I had on that occasion. Naturally I was looking forward to repeating the... More

Enjoyed a wonderful couple of days in North Norfolk and the hotel was a perfect base both in terms of location and the standard of accommodation, food and service. We occupied two double bedrooms in the cottage adjacent to the main building. The rooms were spacious, beautifully furnished, well equipped and clean. The building is close to the road but... More

My wife had walked out to go to the nearby Orange Tree before somebody finally arrived at the bar (wrong side of) to ask if everything was 'fine', which of course it was not as we had been waiting some time to be served despite the fact that there was only a handful of customers in the building. Calling my... More
