We went to Strattons on the Saturday before Valentines, which they had decided was Valentines' night as far as they were concerned. This meant a fixed price menu, at £45 per head, wine extra. Two sittings were offered - at 6.30 and 8.00. We took the later one in order not to feel rushed. From one's first sight of the... More

Staying at Strattons so had dinner the night we arrived. Drinks in the upstairs bar area in front of the fire while we checked the menu. Started with Pan Fried Mackerel and Smoked Haddock Souffle - both really good; well cooked and nicely presented. Main course was Salmon & Leek Veloute, and the Slow Cooked Brisket of Beef - both...

Nice dinner - tasty and everything well cooked - a more sophisticated dining experience. Liked the more quirky style décor but maybe expected it to feel a little more special but enjoyed very much and would recommend the restaurant or hotel on that basis. IPA on menu not available which was disappointing given it is currently in fashion.

we always eat from the Strattons restaurant when we stay at the hotel and the food never ever lets us down. Well worth a visit with family and friends or a ramonatic meal for couples.

The food was delicious but the staff were miserable and the atmosphere was more than chilly, the young staff openly and within earshot discussed how they were planning to leave their employment due to their treatment by the owners/ managers, very off putting and put a downer on what should have been a great night out with friends!

Read so much about Strattons over the years yet never found an excuse to visit. It's halfway between us and friends so we booked a table for dinner and set off. I know Swaffham, but had never noticed the narrow entrance to what is an enchanting place. The garden, reception and dining room set the scene for an awesome meal.... More

We booked afternoon tea for a treat for my Mum's 90th and it proved to be an excellent choice. The afternoon tea is served in a lounge by reception. The hotel is wonderful - very quirky and colourful with a relaxed vibe, with friendly, efficient and knowledgable service. The afternoon tea was delicious - very tasty sandwiches - my particular...

We've eaten here before and it's a hidden gem. The food is absolutely delicious – tian of cromer crab to start, then salmon and then a board of local cheeses. The wine list is great too, with some really quite interesting choices. And the ambience is always splendid. Sometimes the service can be a little stretched, but you always feel... More

The hotel is smart and stylish with an idyllic garden frontage. The restaurant is pretty low key. Service was slightly hit and miss. The food was excellent in parts. There's a good wine list but very limited choice by the glass.
