Good Hotel Guide Review
‘The Michelin star is well earned’ at Tracy and Galton Blackiston’s friendly restaurant-with-rooms close to the north Norfolk coast. In an elegant dining room whose picture windows look out on to neat lawns, Galton Blackiston and Greg Anderson’s ‘superb’ modern menus list a daily-changing selection of ‘excellent’ dishes, perhaps North Sea Dover sole, Beaufort crust, salsify purée; Holkham Hall venison, salt-baked beetroot, cabbage, white pepper jus. With ‘lovely, helpful’ staff, ‘the whole operation runs like clockwork’: drinks and menu deliberations at 7.15 pm, dinner at 8 pm. After coffee and home-made chocolates, head to one of the bedrooms made country house comfortable with ‘all the amenities you might expect’. Rooms in the garden pavilion have a separate sitting area and a private terrace; some bathrooms have a spa bath. At breakfast, croissants are home baked, marmalade is home made, haddock and kippers come straight from the on-site smokehouse. Take a muddy walk down to the quay for ‘lovely views’ of Blakeney Point – ‘it’ll give you a good appetite for your next meal’. (WS, SJ, Minda Alexander)
