Decided to visit for an evening meal as the pub was only 5 minutes drive from the cottage we were staying in at Langham. We tried to find a sample menu online beforehand but the website and Facebook page did not have any details. However, we decided to give it a go and were not disappointed. Even on a Thursday... More

This is the second time we have been to the Chequers recently. This time was for our wedding anniversary. We visited on a busy evening and still received a personnel greeting, the staff are all very good and a credit to the landlord. The food was well presented, hot and very tasty served by a very helpful waitress in a... More

We visited this pub with my brother in law and his partner from America who are used to high standards so it was a relief that it was good. The food was tasty and the service was attentive without being over the top. We'll go back again.

Three of us visit Binham every year (at least once) on holiday and try to support the local businesses. This pub has much improved though we had no problems before it was taken over it must be said. Under the new owners we were made very welcome, chatted to and shown toa table which we had reserved. The place is... More

This was my first visit back to my 'home' village pub for some time, and certainly the first under the new ownership. I had booked a table for a Sunday lunch in order to celebrate my mother's birthday. On arrival we were greeted with a very warm welcome, and were immediately taken to our table. Our order was taken promtly... More

My friend I visited this lovely pub under good recommendation. The food and service was excellent and the pub had a really good atmosphere too. Simon and his chef have clearly created a little gem here. We will definitely return and shall highly recommend this superb pub to friends and family. Looking forward to trying more from the menu soon.... More

Visiting this local pub was a definite thumbs up experience, the risotto with seared pigeon breasts was amazing, well cooked and generous portions. The landlady was very friendly and couldn't do more for us. We will be returning to this lovely village pub soon, and look forward to sampling more country food.
