We stopped here for something to eat, having walked from Hunstanton to Thornham via Holme next the Sea, and what a find! Friendly, welcoming bar man and a wonderful selection of tasty starters which we chose as we only wanted a light lunch. Imagine that the bar and restaurant get busy in the season, so would recommend booking to avoid... More

I wanted to say we thoroughly enjoyed our meal at The Chequers last week. It was very busy, and I was delighted to see it full of locals as well as visitors. We were kindly accommodated by Steve and Helen, despite not having booked, our service was friendly and jovial, and the food served was very good, generous and reasonably... More

Staying in Thornham for a few days, we tried this place for dinner one night. The bar was a pleasant place for pre-dinner drinks, and the restaurant at the rear has a nice laid back ambience about it. We ordered from the pizza / pasta menu and both were delicious, desserts were good too. The service was efficient and the... More

After a long day at the beach we decided to call in at The Chequers Inn for something to eat on our way home. My husband popped in to check that children were welcome and was greeted by a friendly waitress who confirmed that everyone was welcome but food orders wouldn't be taken for another half an hour. This wasn't... More

Booked in for 2 nights to enjoy the bird reserves, warm welcome and great service during our stay. As disabled had a ground floor room, bathroom chilly and unable to use the shower as no hand rails and a step up into shower. All meals were great, well cooked and served, the staff all helpful and cheerful. Suggested to Steve... More

A comfortable bed, a must for most of us l am sure, it most definitely was. Excellent food, the best steak and make pie l have ever tasted and fabulous... More

I would like to thank Steve and all the team for a lovely relaxing weekend. We had a Groupon voucher which was cancelled and I did not even have an acknowledgement from Groupon concerning this. Luckily enough Steve bent over backwards to accommodate us and still offered us the deal. Food excellent best Steak and Ale pie I have ever... More

We opted for the pizza's(Tuscan and USA hot) which were back to their best just as we remember them before MPW arrived... More
