Stayed for two nights and had a fantastic experience. Very Friendly staff and lovely accommodation. Including sloe gin in the room as complementary. Went on second night to sister hotel for dinner at The Lighthouse which was just as good. Great area to visit beautiful beaches and pretty villages .

Stayed for a night in March which we thoroughly enjoyed. I'd been a bit concerned as I knew we were not in the main pub and I often do not like the annex experience. No need for concern - the room was great (The Aspen) immaculate, beautifully decorated in contemporary style with a big bath tub as well as a...

Had a lovely lunch of tapas following by a really nice "Black Forest" dessert. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Can't wait to try the pizza with seafood and samphire. The dining area and restaurant are comfortable and dog friendly. You can book a covered seating area in the garden which would be great for groups.

This was our first stay in Thornham, although we have frequented this coast for many years. Staff were very welcoming, but very smart first appearances, of the outside and the small Holly room (taken at last moment during Feb half term),unfortunately gave way to discomfort as several small issues combined to produce a poor nights sleep !

I have just returned from a short break and decided to try the Chequers for an evening meal, what an excellent decision. The food choice was very typical of what is now being served on the Norfolk coast, It is fair more accustomed to high end restaurants and not a country pub. The seafood and chicken dishes and were first...

We stayed for a couple of nights having booked a few weeks earlier. Check in was haphazard, at a spare table in the restaurant, and the guy showed us to our room which was in an annex upstairs across the car park entryway. The room was nice enough and well appointed, but lacked a bathtub, despite the website indicating that...

Genuine thanks for sharing your feedback. As always, I wish we’d have had the opportunity to discuss this whilst you were with us. It disappoints me greatly that it appears we have not only let you down but also ourselves.

Overall a nice pub/hotel that clearly has been recently refurbished to a high standard. Great location too on the lovely north Norfolk coast. Stayed in the Hawthorn room on the ground floor. It was slightly on the small side, particularly with the extra bed for our daughter, but had a lovely big bath and nice shower. The noise of other...
