I stayed at the Chequers for two nights in the last week with a client whilst running a bird. photography workshop. Steve & Clare were very helpful, very efficient and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were excellent and me being fussy, asking for well done Bacon and hard eggs was not a problem - very tasty! The 8oz... More

Stayed with a friend for 1 night on Saturday and we had 2 rooms which were lovely. Breakfast was wonderful, thoroughly recommend the crumpets with poached eggs! YUM! Close to amazing walks and the sun came out to make the experience even more fab!

Really friendly barman who worked hard to find us a table even though we hadn't booked. The food was excellent, the vegetarian lasagne was the best I have ever tasted and the starters were great too. Good atmosphere and surprisingly fast service given how busy they were.

The whole experience was not a joy. From the indifferent attitude from the man at the bar, the table for two we were eventually given stuck out as if it was an afterthought, to the better tables that were empty all the time we were there, to the food that was OK but nothing to write home about.

Have just spent two very nice nights at this pub whilst visiting Norfolk. Accommodation clean & comfortable & what you would expect in a place of this age. Steve & staff friendly & welcoming. Food excellent. Will visit again when in area.

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

Have visited the village a couple of times now and wanted to give the Chequers a try. Popped in the day before to book a table as we have had a drink before and know it can get busy. When I booked I could see we We were the only booking in the diary. Arrived and were told where our... More
