Good Hotel Guide Review
Artful surprises await around every corner at art dealer Ivor Braka’s sophisticated yet ‘relaxed’ pub-with-rooms: find Stubbs engravings above crackling fires, a Damien Hirst painting in the ladies’ loo. Simone Tattershall is the manager. On the edge of a historic deer park, the flint-stoned, red-gabled inn has ‘lovely’ country-house bedrooms lavishly adorned with handmade wallpaper, Turkish rugs and antique furniture. Broad windows give on to views over the estate. (Raid a downstairs pantry for juice, tea and coffee.) At mealtimes, chef Stuart Tattershall cooks modern rustic dishes (perhaps pea and lovage soup; Blythburgh pork belly, Bramley apple); most nights, steaks, Barnsley chops and estate-reared venison are cooked, ‘as if in a medieval banqueting hall’, over an open fire in the Elk dining room. 5 miles from Cromer.
