Highly recommended and one of the best pubs I have been to in England. Looking forward to visiting again before the end of our short break. A must for all. Best pub...

We spent an excellent night at this very welcoming hotel. We took advantage of their offer of tickets and coach transfer to an evening performance of Thursford Christmas Spectacular (which was just that!). We had a Sunday lunch to die for and an extremely comfortable room. The manager, Steve, was ever present during lunch ensuring guests had everything they wanted....

Off back tomorrow for another stay with some elderly friends. We know how helpful the management and staff will be - as always! The menu provides plenty of good value choice. For ourselves there is a huge choice of walks in the area.

After a rather frosty reception from the bar maid, we went on to have a really enjoyable evening in one of the circular pavilions, situated in the beer garden. It was heated, extremely comfortable and great for our group of 9. The food was so tasty and between us all we had a mix of choices and none of us...

I am sorry to hear of your initial impression and can assure you it is not the standard of reception we...

I recently visited Thornham and stayed at the Chequers. I found the experience very nice indeed. It seems that the hotel/pub/restuarant (call it what you will) has recently been refurbished and the rooms certainly show the care that has been taken. The room was beautifully appointed with a very comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom. There were also nice touches...
