Enjoyable, pricey-ish

We were staying at the Hotel during our honeymoon and booked in to the restaurant the first night. It was a Monday in March so there were only a couple of people in the restaurant (also guests at the hotel). The service was a little patchy, but very friendly.

I can't tell you whether the food is any good, but I can tell you about the poor customer service. When we asked for a table at 8.55pm on a bank holiday Friday, they said yes, because there were plenty free. They then said we couldn't order a main course because the kitchen staff were already clearing up. I pointed... More

My visit to Strattons is the reason I finally joined tripadvisor as I feel so disappointed with the experience that it had to be shared. As with other reviews I found the menu very limited however making the best of it I placed my order with the friendly waitress. The first course arrived and was hot but bland and under... More

Strattons restaurant is small and pleasant . The décor is clean . The menu is quite limited and some of the food combinations had me scratching my head lol Although the food was of good quality obviously good produce chosen a lack of seasoning made the main meals a little bland. The cheese board taster was expensive for what it... More

We went to Strattons as a group for a birthday celebration and had a wonderful meal. We asked for a cake to be provided and they produced the most delicious vanilla sponge I have ever eaten. The rest of the meal was fantastic too. The service is very good and the place has real character.

Booked a romantic dinner for two on Valentine's Day 2015, £60 per head. The service was fairly quick once we sat down, despite the restaurant probably seeing one of it's busiest nights of the year. However we did have to wander round the hotel itself just to get someone to see us to our table and once we did eventually... More

I've lived in this part of Norfolk for 20 years; heard and read about Strattons, but until now, had never dined there. Why oh why have I never visited. Had a lovely pre-Christmas evening meal with retired ex-colleagues - delicious food, adequate portions, lovely ambience and quiet but attentive service. We shall definitely be going there again and I shall... More

I've eaten at Strattons a few times and like their quirky environment - it is odd, but comfortably so - but it is quirky. Really suits a couple looking for a memorable evening The food is good - the best in Swaffham (but that isn't saying much) - but I think the restaurant believes it's own myth about being 'excellent'...

A return after many years to what was a favourite location when Les & Vanessa were hands-on in charge. "They" do say you should never go back, and maybe "they" are right. The food was good quality, but the portions in most cases were on the small side. Starter of soup, did not come with bread, so we asked for... More
