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

We stayed in the hotel for a weekend and were persuaded by the lovely young woman who rang us to try the restaurant (in fairness there is very little choice in Swaffham). I think in spite of the good reviews here it speaks volumes that this restaurant was not busy on Friday or Saturday.I had the starter of ham terrine... More

This is a must do.It is unlikely that you will visit many more interesting hotels than this.I have visited one other and love this sort of thing.All rooms are special, relax in the lounge with tea in the afternoon or pre dinner drinks in the evening.I love it.

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
