About The Chequers Inn
The Chequers Inn has the coast in its soul: thanks to its fabulous location in Thornham Village. Light dishes and grazing at lunchtime gives way to ‘gastro dining’ in the evening, so whatever your mood, whatever the occasion, there’s fabulous food to suit. We even recommend drinks for each dish, often from our fantastic local producers.
We’re in the midst of Norfolk’s Royal Coast, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, washed in the glorious North Norfolk coastal light. Step inside and you’ll find yourself very welcome: our team sets out to make every guest enjoy a real sense of belonging, whether they are with us for a light lunch or a longer stay.
Our menus make the most of local produce, changing as the seasons turn so diners can enjoy the very best tastes of Norfolk at every time of year. In summer months enjoy the sea air as you dine outside in one of our pavilions that always are a great occasion with friends and family, and when the nights draw in and there’s a chill in the air you can enjoy a winter lunch and a good ale with us, warming yourself by our crackling fire.
This eleven-bedroom hotel is the perfect retreat for people who want to pull on wellies in the day and something more elegant at night. Because if you enjoy the matchless combination of chef-led cuisine, elegant accommodation and miles and miles of marvellous coast to explore, we think you’ll absolutely love The Chequers Inn.
Wonderful lunch, loved the pavilion!
service was very good, outdoor seating area was great. Food was good quality gastropub food.
Main courses a little pricey
Great food and the pavilion was perfect (& warm) for these COVID times. We were well looked after as a group of kids and adults including some dietary issues (gluten free). The service was very attentive at the start of the meal but tapered off a bit towards the end of the meal.
The staff went above snd beyond to give us the very best eating experience. Super good snd truly outstanding service.
The food was really nice, and the service of ALL the staff were first class..... however I would just say that due to the cold temperatures outside your service staff could have been better looked after by the management team and been allowed to wear at least a long sleeved jumper/cardigan or a jacket the girls looked frozen yesterday.

Unfortunately due to COVID the atmosphere wasn’t the best for a Christmas Lunch but that’s not the fault of the hotel. Otherwise everything else was perfect, thank you! 😊
A wonderful Christmas lunch, hosted by a very friendly professional team. Will be back as soon as regulations allow Thank you
We had a very nice evening meal while staying at the Chequers. The pigs cheek starter and risotto main were particularly good. It would be nice if there was a bit more choice of wines by the glass. The dining room was comfortable and the tables were well spaced out.
Super evening. The food was all excellent and the staff tried so hard to make a jolly evening on a quiet night.
Fantastic food and service. Perfect way to spend our honeymoon
Despite the difficult times, the team at the Chequers did everything they could to make feel welcome. The food was superb and the service was immaculate.
Very clear Covid-19 protocol strictly applied by staff .
Absolutely loved our dining experience in the pods. Perfect for a special occasion and great that we could have the dog with us after a walk on the beach. Toasty warm and great atmosphere. Thank you - will definitely be back!!
The food was delicious, enjoyed our 3 course dinners on both evenings. The service was very good and every consideration has been taken for being Covid safe. Loved the private gazebos in the garden. We enjoyed our drink in one of them, beautifully set up and with heating. Definitely recommend this restaurant
Excellent food and service.
really good staff, food great, superb area, ate in the pavilions totally isolated warm and plenty of room loved it.
Excellent food and wine
Very good food, lovely environment
Stayed for my boyfriends birthday and had a meal in the restaurant, everything was excellent.
Excellent room and very pleased with the service. We felt very safe with your Covid prevention restrictions. Breakfast was superb. We’ll Be back!
Amazing meal and service at The Chequers
Overall food was good, but one rib eye streak was 50% fat and adults food very over priced for portion size. Shame as good be so good. Just better food quality control and pricing should be seriously reviewed.
More variations of the dinner Menu is needed particularly for those staying more than a couple of nights, a varying dish of the day perhaps?
