The bedrooms are to get a makeover very soon which will be good but we stayed in room 11 and found it very good. The food was very good also but need a slightly more... More

2nd visit to The Chequers Inn. Thank you Steve for looking after us. Cant wait to come back excellent food and I am still raving about the Lamb Shank Pie !!! I would recommend a visit to Brancaster Beach/ the Salt Marshes and go and watch the horses on Holkham Beach. Loved it all !

We were staying in a nearby cottage for a long weekend and saw this pub whilst out for a walk to the Deli. We decided to pop in for a drink, really glad we did. We received a warm welcome from the staff and the pub itself was gorgeous. We sat outside and decided we would like to go back... More

Now Marco Pierre White is no longer the owner the place has taken a turn for the better. It's not all brilliant but the staff have to be commended for working under the threat of job loses every single day. The fact they are smiling and helpful maybe speaks volumes to the way they were treated under Mr MPW? Our... More

We stopped at Chequers Inn for some lunch and fortunately were quite hungry as the chalkboard outside simply said 'Pasta, pizza and pies'. There are other options on the menu but the genial host sold us on the pizzas and they did not disappoint. Perfect thin Italian style bases and excellent toppings that definitely hit the spot. All washed down... More

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
