I have just returned from my five night stay at The Chequers and can't wait to return. Everything one could wish for in a mini break is at hand there. 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

Visited The Chequers on Friday 27th February for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the ciabatta's and glass of blush so we booked for dinner on Saturday evening. The starters including whitebait were tasty and the portion size was generous. 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

This pub is in he perfect location for vistng the North Norfolk Coast and on first impressions it looks lovely. Staff were all helpful and very friendly and breakfast was good. The rooms were very tired and the shower was horrendous, I note there was a sign saying there was a problem with the pressure but you would have had... More

Travelled over one hour for our first meal in this restaurant for Mother's Day . Nice atmosphere and decor and most of the food was OK - my daughter had roast lamb which was inedible - it was very tough. She was offered a replacement meal of roast pork but by then it was too late and she doesn't like... More

The Chequers Inn, Thornham, is a great place to stay. We have stayed once before and we will return. Wonderful friendly staff. Nothing was too much to do for us. Food excellent. Room warm. No shower in room 12, just an attachment that does not fit the taps! So I had a bath! Freshly cooked breakfast so you have to... More

We stayed here looking for a base near the coast for some walking and good food with friends. The Chequers worked for us because it provided both. It was very quiet in the inn, with just a few people staying over, so can't comment on atmosphere when busy. Rooms were ok; clean, warm and comfortable beds. Decor is a puzzle.... More

Our room No. 3 was pleasant enough but the bathroom smelt really badly (a sewage problem), The bar/restaurant has been "modernised" there are all things grey in it now, the comfy seating has gone along with the open fire, on the whole not at all welcoming. The beer was excellent as was the breakfast which made up for it a... More
