2AA Rosette dining in our elegant, candlelit restaurant

Our daily changing, seasonal, 2AA Rosette Dinner menu is served Monday to Saturday in our intimate, elegant Georgian-panelled, candlelit Dining Room which seats a maximum of just 16 guests; service starts at 7.00pm with last orders around 8.30pm. All the dishes are prepared here in our kitchen by our talented Chef and are freshly cooked to order.

At Easter, and on Bank Holiday weekends, the Dining Room is open on Sunday evenings but is then closed on Bank Holiday Monday. We do recommend you make dinner reservations when booking accommodation as we cannot guarantee availability of a table, or a particular time, where dinner reservations have not been made in advance.

Fresh produce is sourced from local suppliers and in summertime, some vegetables, salad leaves and herbs come from our own garden. Chef bakes fresh bread daily. He can prepare tempting vegetarian dishes and will offer alternative choices for particular dietary needs although we do appreciate advance notice if you have any such special requirements.

Our wine list has an excellent selection of quality wines featuring mainly smaller wineries whose emphasis is on quality over quantity.

A Room Service menu is also available Monday to Saturday and you are most welcome to enjoy dishes from our dinner menu served in your room.


Each morning you can enjoy a tasty English breakfast with bacon, sausages and ham from Barnard’s of Shropham, free-range Norfolk eggs, thick yoghurt with our own fruit compôte or toasted muesli and local honey, as well as a choice of cereals, fresh fruits, artisan toast with Norfolk preserves, and Fair-trade tea and coffee. On warm summer mornings, you can enjoy breakfast under the gazebo overlooking the swimming pool.


Afternoon tea is available to residents daily; home-baked scones, delicious cake and freshly brewed tea or coffee are served in our Drawing Room by the log fire in winter or in the Conservatory or on the pool terrace in summer.
