Find this good restaurant in an elegant Georgian manor set in its own landscaped parkland, only a few miles from from the Royal residence of Sandringham. The intimate and comfortable dining room complete with chandeliers, has pleasant views over the garden.
The kitchen offers an interesting menu using carefully-sourced, often local produce including vegetables and herbs from their own kitchen garden.Expect the likes of 'Scallops with Cauliflower Purée and Spicy Beignets'; 'Ham Hock and Chicken Terrine' and 'Congham Gravadlax with Herb Salad' among the starters.
Perhaps 'Sea Bass with Roast Jerusalem Artichokes and Vanilla Velouté'; 'Roast Chump of Lamb with Garlic Potato Purée' and in season 'Partridge Ballotine with Cep and Truffle Sauce' to follow.
There are plenty of vegetarian choices at each stage.
Desserts maintain the high standard, with maybe 'Poached Pear with Honey and Almond Ice Cream'; 'Apple Soufflé' or 'Hot Chocolate Fondant with Fig Ice Cream' to finish. Or you might not be able to resist their excellent selection of cheese.
An overnight stay, should turn an excellent meal into a special occasion.
