About The Chequers

The Hainford Chequers is a beautiful 17th century, thatched cottage restaurant set in the heart of the rural Norfolk countryside in the picturesque village of Hainford. Only a short drive from the Cathedral City of Norwich and the beautiful Norfolk Broads.

It was rebuilt only a couple of years later. The restaurant and bar area can seat 72 people comfortably.
