Lovely place, charming staff, excellent food apart from a meagre morsel of Eton Mess, don't let this minor criticism put you off, I feel its just worth mentioning, this was our second visit and definitely not our last.

Beautiful ingredients put together to compliment and blend, overall a superb meal. My only faults would be that the skin on the cod dish was not crispy and so I had to dismantle my wonderfully arranged plate to take it off, and also I thought the extra money for the scallops was a 'tad' excessive, but seriously none of this...

My husband and I got married at The Mead on 6th August and we had the most perfect weekend. From the moment we first visited to the day after our wedding we received such excellent service from Emily and all of the staff - nothing was too much trouble and we have had so many compliments from our guests.

Very welcoming staff, restrained and subtle country house décor. Service was excellent. Food was very good, but seemed over complicated. Each course had 6 or 7 very different ingredients, when 3 or 4 would have been absolutely fine. All very well cooked and presented, just a bit over fussy. Well worth a visit.

This is our third trip to the Norfolk Mead. We really love the surrounding area of the Broads. Our room was lovely and well appointed, the staff are really friendly and efficient and the food is really good, local and plentiful. We will return. The highlight for us was sitting out on the balcony of the room looking out to... More

Whilst on holiday a two weeks ago, I went on to Trip Advisor for somewhere to eat in Coltishall and up came the Norfolk Mead Hotel. So, we popped in on spec to see if they had a table for two available. Fortunately they did. What followed was one of those rare experiences that we will both remember for a... More

We stayed two nights in the Hawthorn room and had dinner both evenings plus one lunch. I also visited the treatment rooms. The room was lovely with a very large comfortable bed, and a sitting area with a sort of open plan bathroom - large shower with overhead and hand held options and a wash basin in the same space...

We visited 10th July whilst on holiday in Norfolk. When we arrived we were asked if we would like drinks in the lounge were we could look at the... More

We visited this picturesque hotel for a spot of Sunday lunch and wow what a quaint little beauty all tucked away down a long dusty drive way! Drinks were served in the gardens and as per our time of booking we were swiftly taken to the exquisite dining room. The food is amazing on every level and the portion sizes... More

So fantastic to eat here two nights. Lovely staff, brilliant food. Good portion size. We think this might be the best food we've ever had. Lots of flavours and variety, and not at all fatty or heavy. (As good as Colette's in The grove, watford, but proper size meals here. )

Thank Libertysurf
