Good Hotel Guide Review
Wide, tranquil views of salt marshes add to the relaxing atmosphere at the Nye family’s ‘first-rate’ Norfolk inn. ‘Cheerful, pleasingly confident’ staff, ‘modern, well-equipped’ rooms and ‘tasty, varied’ menus seal the deal. In the main building and sedum-roofed garden annexe, each bedroom is different: some rooms suit a family, others, with a private terrace leading to the Coastal Path at the bottom of the garden, are ideal for outdoorsy sorts. ‘Our spacious room at the top had great views over the marshes; a large bed even more comfortable than the one we have at home. Additional pluses: a flask of fresh milk; a quality coffee machine.’ ‘Splendid seafood meals’ are served in the conservatory restaurant – Brancaster oysters get a special mention – but chef Fran Hartshorne’s vegetarian dishes are worth paying attention to, perhaps wild garlic tart; roast aubergine, bulgur wheat (‘all good – the first time I’d ordered a veggie meal!’). Go out at low tide to watch the fishermen gathering mussels and oysters; ‘excellent coastal walks’ beckon beyond. (PA, ML, I and VA)
