This was an opportunistic visit since we had just walked around Blickling Estate (with a visit if you want a nice walk!) and searching for a lunch venue, We arrived here at 12.15 and the main bar area was packed - we took the last table for two with some trepidation that service might be slow We needn't have worried....

Altogether we were not explained cancellation charges as hotel policy we were still charged full amount for cancellation outside our control. Called as soon as we knew day before due to arrive. Expected some more flexibility on charges.

Breakfast looked amazing but as we were still full up from the previous nights meal, we just had cereal,tea,coffee. The staff are laid back,...

This is now becoming an annual visit around bluebell time. The gardens at Blickling are always a joy and there's lot's of good walking if you're so inclined. We always go for the same room overlooking magnificent Blickling Hall, it's really comfortable with a wonderful sofa and armchair. The only snag is the tiny toilet and shower room but it's...

The fish pie was one of the best ever, full of chunky fish pieces and topped with cheesy mash with a...
