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.
Absolutely delicious food and incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff. Made for a wonderful evening. We will definitely be visiting again.
Fur of us ate with you for dinner and all enjoyed our meal from your new menu. Perhaps it was a little over-priced...
The food was excellent staff warm and welcoming, the three of us dining were all very impressed with the quality we will return again.
Lovely place delicious food! Highly recommend we went on a quiet weekday lunchtime so can’t really comment on atmosphere but had a lovely window seat by the fire. Food drinks and service spot on. Lavender lemonade - delicious
Great quality food and friendly service. Would be nice to see more vegetarian options on the menu.
We had a wonderful stay for a family 80th birthday!
Another great dinner at the Chequers, and this time New Years Eve! Many thanks to you all.
This was our third visit to the Chequers and the food gets better each time. Well done to the chef and all concerned. Atmosphere is great. Will be back again next year.
We throughouly enjoyed our anniversary lunch at the chequeres inn. The food was delicious and our toddler was well catered for also.
We have stayed many times at The Chequers Inn, the staff are really friendly, the pub and accomodation are always very clean and a good atmosphere. Our only negative comment is since the refurb they have messed with the menus, we understand menus are adjusted to be seasonal but The Chequers has now lost all traces of pub food and is trying to be something it isn't, such a shame as everything else is really good.
Classy decor, super clean and excellent service BUT expensive for what I’d say was posh pub food.
Absolutely thrilled with our stay on Friday the 14th of December. Lovely atmosphere and the room was spotless. Could have had a little more to add to the food we ordered but wasn’t disappointed with what we got. Was delicious. Thanks very much to all staff Will definitely be staying again x
Service was excellent as always. Roast dinner was very good too, as was the welcome and atmosphere. Will be happy to recommend, and shall look forward to going back.
Had an absolute gorgeous stay. Always our favourite Norfolk hideaway. The staff couldn’t do enough to ensure we had a wonderful time. Accommodation perfect. Beautiful surroundings. Would love to stay for Xmas..... lifestyle permitting! Thank you.
We have been previously, and never been disappointed,. Food is lovely and the service is excellent, lovely people, make you feel at home straight away.
We had a great meal at the chequers to celebrate a birthday. The food was spot on. All 3 courses tasted delicious and we had a lovely evening. The service was really friendly and we were well looked after. This is our new favourite restaurant in the north norfolk area.
The room was comfortable but the atmospheric lighting made it very dark , so dark it was difficult to read even with sll the lights on. The blinds at the window need sorting as there is s big gap down the side which means the street light shone in all night . The staff were super friendly and helpful and very good at their jobs .
Excellent, friendly service. Food was excellent and waiter was great - very attentive and went that bit further - the sloe gin was sooo good. We were the only people booked in to stay and breakfast was very personal. At no point were we made to feel rushed. Well done. We have stayed with you before but it was even better this time. We will be back
We have visited the Chequers fairly regularly since its refurb a couple of years ago. Historically we have always had lovely meals there with great service. Sadly, however, our last experience was pretty poor in comparison. The food wasn’t great and they were so understaffed that we were kept waiting for our table and then the arrival of food was sporadic and not of good quality. I would also say that prices have increased. I think the evening itself was brought to a rather abrupt end by being told they were closing shortly and not being thanked for the tip I felt obliged to leave. Based on this experience it is very unlikely we would return in the future. A real shame as it was my friends birthday and used to be one of our favourite places to eat.
Excellent meal couldn’t fault it.
Fabulous dining experience, thank you. We particularly enjoyed the smoked haddock rarebit starter and the apple cake pudding with spiced toffee was divine. Great food, great staff and service and great cooking. 5 stars all round and a fitting anniversary meal for us. Thank you again.
Really had a nice time, food was good staff were also very good and would stay again , highly recommend :))
Pizza base was raw so we returned it and it came out again raw. If you have a whole section dedicated to pizza it would be expected it was a speciality. We ended up only having one main on our anniversary meal which we had to share. Other courses seem very expensive for what they were.
Loved our big room
