Modern and smart but not OTT

We were looking for a smart place for lunch away from the coast (too many children at this time of the year!) and we found it. Taking a new bank manager out, it had to be a little bit special! For starters we chose a selection from the lunch menu which could be termed "tapas" and we were... read more

I had a meal here for the first time today, I was not expecting it to be so big in the restaurant. Plenty of tables and not crowded together, nicely set out. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful, and if it had not been raining I would loved to have sat outside, but was more than happy inside. Its... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for two nights, with one evening meal. One of the very best hotel experiences we have had anywhere in the world. Room very clean and comfortable, staff all very friendly, our waitress (Marianne) gave us exactly the right amount of attention, breakfast and dinner beautifully cooked and presented, delightful atmosphere. Would definitely return.

We were looking for a new place to eat and an internet search brought up the Kings Head and the fact that William and kate had visited recently ..well you can't get better patronage than that ! so we visited for lunch. The main bar has a slightly odd mix/feel in the sense that at the time of our visit... More

As we were staying at the hotel overnight we pre-booked for dinner. The restaurant is well decorated and comfortable. Although the bar was very busy (and noisy with chatter as it should be) we were soon served with drinks by the attentive barman who had noticed that I managed to reach a small corner of the bar. We then entered... More

After a tiring day at The Sandringham Craft Fair on Saturday, this wonderful meal complimented our week-end.

This is a greatly improved restaurant with well cooked, locally sourced food served by very good waiting staff. Each time we have been the restaurant has been busy and deservedly so. Well done.

Not good enough to be described as luxury - furnishings called 'Edwardian' are just mismatched shabby. Carpets smell badly in room 1 and no bed skirts give poor first opinion. Hotel MUST move rubbish bins away from outside the OPEN kitchen window. Huge fly problem spoils what it actually very good quality food. Such a few small improvements would change... More
