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.

My partner and I came here on Sunday evening, the first day of a week-long holiday staying in a nearby village. We intended to eat at the village pub but they didn't serve evening meals - so we started from a position of being grateful to be able to eat anything at all. My mother who recommended it had called... More

We were booked to have lunch in the bar/lounge to accommodate Dougal (Labrador) but the weather was so nice that we asked to eat in the garden. The staff could not have been more obliging. A good sized table for the six of us and a large umbrella for shade. Service was excellent throughout including a bowl of water for... More

We were taken here by friends on a recent visit to this part of the world. Firstly the decor of the hotel is bizarre. I do note that it markets itself as a 'boutique' hotel, but it was like nothing I have ever seen, or want to see again. Thankfully the restaurant was a lot more subdued. We were kept... More
