Having dropped in at this place at least once a year with family and friends, for ten years, this time it was simply for tea and toast the morning after a party! We had walked here through the deer park on the Holkham Estate. The hospitality was outstanding, with not a second look at our dogs, and mucky wellies, the... More

Stayed at this hotel Sunday 15th march with my parents. I cannot fault this place the rooms where lovely and very clean. There was even special added things you don't always get in hotel rooms, bath robes, and sticks of holkam rock. We had access to the drawing room where there was complimentary whiskey, brandy or port. The restaurant was... More

If you don't mind being treated as an inconvenience, don't mind serving youself to cake without a cake slice and don't mind eating off your own lap on a settee (after being told to move twice from empty tables in an empty restaurant) then perhap you will like this establishment. Needless to say, we did not!

We often come to Holkham to walk the dog on this incredible beach and have often eaten at the Victoria but this is the first time we have stayed and it didn't disappoint. Lovely comfortable rooms and great food, but what makes this place so special are the staff who are all super friendly and laid back making your stay... More

We have been eating (and occasionally staying) at The Victoria for many years now so when we had friends visiting recently we decided to book a meal for four on valentines night. In the past the food here was pretty much an equal to The White Horse in Brancaster Staithe. In fact our favourite pastime was to eat in both... More

Have stayed several times, fantastic location at end of Lady Anne's Drive (walk to Holkham beach) . Styled in the manner of a late Victorian hunting lodge, the Vic is unique, with friendly and attentive staff. Food great, too, using local produce. In my opinion, much better than any where else in nearby Burnham Market .... or almost anywhere else... More

Although we didn't stay at The Vic lunch there was absolutely delicious and good value to boot. Beautifully presented in lovely surroundings with great views down towards the best beach in England Don't pass this place by. We will return as soon as possible

My friend and I visited for a late lunch on a sunday afternoon. The pub has ample parking and an outdoor play area for children. There also appears to be dog kennels and I assume these are for customer's dogs. The Victoria has a cosy and inviting interior and there was a lovely view out of the window, towards the... More

Moving house and wanted somewhere locally to stay, so The Victoria seemed a good place for one night. We have eaten there in the past and used to like it . Unfortunately. Not so now, the food was mediocre, tasteless fish, lamb that could have been mutton. The starters were good and maybe we should just have eaten the starters!... More

Reviews were good but our experience was only so so. Had lunch there: ok food but pricey. Then went for a walk and came back for a hot drink with some friends. Very slow service and not up to standards for the price. Nice hot chocolate though. Overall, not desperate to go back really...
