We are not spoilt for choice in mid-Norfolk so Stattons was a welcome find. It is very much tucked away so you could pass by without ever knowing it is in the middle of Swaffam. The chef says he specilises in slow cooking methods. The mackeral I had as a starter and cod for a main were both cooked well... More

Good, locally sourced food, presented in an imaginative style. A little on the pricey side. I think the restaurant is aspiring to be nudging at Egon Ronay to Michelin level, but it should be seen as a good, local honest bistro instead.

Limited choice and poor customer service but the pudding (for normal diet) was good. Presentation also was unimaginative. Special diet main was good but starter and dessert disappointing with not much on offer and not up to the same standard as was on offer to "normal" eaters.

Dear reader We cater for a wide range of dietary requirements with complete empathy; my daughter-in-law suffers from coeliac disease so I am extremely sensitive to the problems that eating out can create to those with more limited diets. In our cafe we offer a wide range of gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, dairy free options such as chickpea batter with... More

Eclectic decor is a favourite of mine. It's a boutique hotel as well as chi chi restaurant. We went for a birthday celebration and were really well looked after. The team were super friendly and helpful. The food was amazing and the wines were as you would expect. It's pretty pricey and a really special treat place but we had... More

Myself and my girlfriend found ourselves staying in Swaffham for a night (25th May) over the bank holiday weekend in May. We looked online for restaurants in the area Strattons immediately caught our eye. The hotel is a really good looking building, very charming. We walked in and asked if they had any tables for dinner and were told that... More

We ate at this restaurant whilst staying over at the hotel. We had both evening meal and breakfast. The service was great at both meals and the food was very tasty, served very hot and good sized portions. Would definitely return.

My wife booked this restaurant for my birthday. She stated on the booking she was gluten free, yet no preparation had been made to accommodate her needs. Instead we had to pick bits of meals from the menu she could eat. The result was as plate of food we could have knocked up at home. My meal was lovely, but... More

Had an evening meal at this restaurant on our last night in Swaffham, a stunning old building, probably the best service we have ever had, food was exceptional, not overly expensive, was a really nice find, and if we visit again, we will stay in the hotel as well.

My partner and I are just back from a really positive experience at Strattons. We are not from the area but read the positive reviews of the restaurant and decided to have a drive out to the lovely Norfolk town of Swaffham. We were honestly blown away with the service, food and atmosphere. I don't use the word lightly but... More
