Exec chef Andrew jones is inspired by the wealth of produce we have here in Norfolk and is passionate about letting the season dictate his menus. The restaurant therefore runs on the principle of celebrating the best produce the county has to offer, cooked simply and using our Bertha charcoal oven wherever possible.

The luxury bistro la carte menu echoes its grand Georgian setting and is the perfect fit for the chandelier lit restaurant; the more casual lounge menu features dishes which can be enjoyed in the pastel velvet armchairs of the garden room, on the sun-drenched terrace or in the eclectically styled exposed brick cellar.

Leisurely breakfasts, a decadently adorned cake trolley, made to order picnic baskets – complete with local picnicing treasure maps and spectacular Sunday lunches served on antique platters also make their mark here.
