A charming stay at a characterful 16th-century pub-with-rooms in the pretty village of Thornham on the North Norfolk Coast - includes breakfast and a dinner allowance


Bringing a touch of glamour to the North Norfolk coast, this revamped 16th-century pub-with-rooms promises style-savvy guests plenty to get excited about. Most fabulous, though, is its location in Thornham - the impossibly pretty and peaceful village close to the Sandringham Estate - the much-loved country retreat of HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.

Following an extensive top-to-bottom refurb, all of the 11 intimate and individually-designed guestrooms assure chic décor; with muted tones, fashionable soft furnishings, carpeted flooring, and modern lighting. Thw Good room has a comfortable king-size bed dressed with a duck down duvet and Missoni bed throw, Sony Smart TV with digital channels and more. The bathroom comes with a bathtub, shower, ESPA toiletries, and soft thick towels. Nice touches include sloe gin, bottled water, cafetiere with fresh coffee, and home-made biscuits. Opt for a Better room for more space and either a free-standing bath or a seating area.

Kick-start your day with a choice of three breakfasts: Bakers (croissants, muffins, porridge), Cooked (Eggs Benedict, Royale or Florentine, haddock, kippers) and The Chequers Norfolk Breakfast (bacon, sausage, black pudding, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, baked beans, and as-you-like-them eggs).

For lunch and dinner, the a la carte menu includes grilled fillet of North Sea haddock with creamed leeks, potato rösti and cockle cream sauce, breast of Norfolk duck with celeriac purée, horseradish creamed potato, cavolo nero, sautéed ceps, vintage port and shallot sauce, and garlic butter stuffed chicken burger with rough-cut chips and The Chequers slaw. There’s also a beamed bar where you can cosy up by the open fire and sink a couple of pints of real ale.


You’ll be staying on the High Street in Thornham, the little village on the North Norfolk Coast that’s nearby the RSPB nature reserves of Titchwell, Holme and Cley. Must-dos within easy driving distance include hitting the lovely beaches of Brancaster and Holkham, visiting the royal Sandringham Estate, and strolling around the five-acre walled garden at 18th-century Holkham Hall. Equally visit-worthy is Burnham Market for its art galleries and delicatessens and the coastal town of Wells-next-the-Sea for its wonderful craft shops. The Chequers Inn is just four miles from the tiny village of Burnham Thorpe, Horatio Nelson’s birthplace.
