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.

Fur of us ate with you for dinner and all enjoyed our meal from your new menu. Perhaps it was a little over-priced...

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.

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.

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.

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.
