Find this good restaurant in a hotel, converted from a Victorian gentlemen's club, within sight of the sea and salt marshes – making it particularly popular with affluent twitchers.
The whole has a slightly colonial feel, with wooden floors, leather furnishings and plenty of natural light. Eat in the comfortable bar or more formally in their conservatory dining room – which overlooks the garden.
The menu is very modern in style to the point of being experimental, but at lunchtime you can just enjoy Sandwiches, a bowl of Soup, 'Ham, Duck Egg & Chips' in The Eating Rooms' - or eat from their full-blown à la carte menu in The Conservatory Restaurant.
An autumn menu included 'Cromer Crab with Golden Beetroot, Rosewater & Nitro Yoghurt Sorbet'; 'Smoked Waldorf Salad with Binham Blue, Confit Celery, Grapes, Walnut Oil & Jus Jelly' and 'Ham Hock Terrine with Mustard, Capers & Brioche Streusil' among the starters.
'Fillet of Sea Bass with Puy Lentils, Turnips and Scallions with Champagne & Vanilla Jelly'; 'Breast of Loin of Rare-Breed Pork with Smoked Potatoes, Fennel & Coriander Salt' and 'Best End of Lamb with Leek, Tapenade, Radicchio & Fondant Potato' listed among the mains.
Even the desserts have unusual combinations with perhaps – depending on the season – 'Rhubarb & Peach Crumble' and 'Pineapple Tart Tatin with Basil Ice Cream' among the offerings.
