Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Chequers Inn

Country pub situated in the village of Binham. The local Binham Priory is worth a visit, whilst you're here.

A lengthy sign at the entrance to the car park explains the Covid regulations and indicates that you will be approached and offered a table.

We had no such luck, but soon realised that the interior of the pub is not open. Service is from a bar in the garden and there are 3 or 4 different drinking areas. Unfortunately, despite most tables being unoccupied, all were reserved. So, we took our chances and sat at a reserved table.

A blackboard at the side of the outside bar listed the ales as Adnams Broadside & Humpty Dumpty Swallowtail & Little Sharpie. Although, there were only 2 handpulls. So, it is possible that the third ale would have had to be fetched from inside. Nevertheless, I was also happy with the option of a Whin Hill Sweet cider, which I'd not previously tried.

The pub does not seem to brew its own beer any more.

A decent start to a day in Norfolk. But will pubs like this continue to offer only outdoor seating as we head into the winter?

Great Pub - Front Street Beers brewed on site, all three that were available were in excellent quality. Food was also very good.
