How sad is it that we pick a restaurant we want to try, and then plan a holiday around it ? Which worked amazing well in this case as north Norfolk is a fabulous area to visit. Whilst we didn't stay at Morston Hall overnight (tempting as it looked) we stayed close enough to be able to get a cab there, instead of having to drive.
This place is run to absolute precision and the service is impeccable without being pretentious. Everyone shows up at 7.30pm for 8pm, has a pre-dinner drink in the conservatory or the garden if the weather is nice, then everyone goes through at the same time for dinner. And everyone has exactly the same thing, which they do tell you about and ask if you have any dislikes or allergies.
As to the food, everything was spot on, from the canapes of smoked salmon puffs on guacomole with our pre-dinner drinks to the cheese board with its comprehensive list of all the cheeses. The highlight for me was the very clever parmesan mousse with peas and smoked bacon, but all elements of the meal were excellent. I was even more impressed that they had one of my favourite wines too, from a small vineyard in Western Australia.
They've also caught on to the tap water debate, and have added that to the options of still & sparkling, which was great that you aren't made to feel cheap by asking !
Would I go back – absolutely in a flash. And I'd stay the night, or maybe even two.
