The Chequers Inn has been refurbished to a very high standard, providing comfortable accommodation and a superb menu for visitors wanting to spend time on the picturesque North Norfolk coast. Dating back to the 16th century, the Inn welcomes you with a traditional bar, large log fire and low beamed ceiling. Outside are two newly built unique pavilions, seating 10 and 14 respectively, which can be hired for a private party or meeting. This is a perfect spot from which to explore the beauties of the area: beaches at Brancaster and Holkham, the RSPB Nature Reserve at Titchwell, where on the fresh and saltwater marshes reed buntings, reed warblers, water rails, bitterns and avocets can be spotted from special Viewing Hides. The art galleries and clothing shops of Burnham Market are nearby. Whether for a romantic weekend, walking, birdwatching, on business or just for a relaxing break, The Chequers is the ideal destination.

Drawing upon the abundance of outstanding local produce Head Chef, Shayne Wood, creates seasonal menus that use the very best of what is on their doorstep in Thornham. Local, seasonal and fresh are major influences at The Chequers Inn, choose from stone-baked pizzas, Norfolk tapas or à la carte menu that features mouth-watering and skilfully prepared dishes. Start with a dressed crab salad, go on to chargrilled sirloin of local beef and conclude with one of chef’s homemade ice creams or sorbets.

For some of the best al fresco dining on the North Norfolk coast choose to eat in their sun-trapped courtyard or one of the two cedar wood pavilions.

The 11 bedrooms are divided into good, better and best rooms. In reality all are luxurious, spacious and bursting with character, with contemporary nickel and wood designer furniture amid soft, muted décor. All come with king size beds, smart TVs, tea & coffee making facilities and fluffy bathrobes, some with double ended baths and all with ESPA complimentary toiletries.

Attractions in the area include Felbrigg Hall, Blickling Hall, Holkham Hall, Houghton Hall and Sandringham. Several golf courses nearby including Royal Cromer, Hunstanton. Sheringham and Brancaster.
