“Birthday dinner”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

A lovely evening out, great food,courteous staff and a lovely atmosphere. Chef made delicious chocolate ganache birthday cake for our friend which was beautifully presented and tasted devine.
Our taxi failed to turn up at the end of the night and after a bit of ringing around the staff hadnt found us a replacement to get us back to our cottage. One of the staff very kindly offered to drive us home in 2 runs after he finished working for the night, back to Docking. He was really cheerful and happy to help even though he was at the end of a very long shift and still had to get home to Kings Lynn.

My friend and I enjoyed a superb aftertnoon tea yesterday, sitting in the beautiful sunny gardens we were thoroughly spoilt by the chef and staff.
We both are tricky eaters- dairy-free and gluten-free food only. In spite of this the chef pulled out all the stops and made us a specially cooked afternoon tea including gluten-free bread and dairy -free desserts and scones. They provided soya milk for the tea and even soya spread for the scones. What a delight to be able to eat lovely food in beautiful surroundings and not feel as if we were being a total pain.
Well done to all the staff -wonderfully polite and attentive- and again special thanks to the chef. Thoroughly to be recommended- we will definitely go back and will spread the word amongst our friends.

We were looking for somewhere to stay in Norfolk that was highly recommended and dog friendly and having read excellent reviews about it in a national newspaper we decided this was the one for us. We were so glad we chose it. Our room was called The Oyster Shed and was totally charming. Breakfast and evening meal was second to none( in fact my husband said the full English breakfast was the best he'd ever had). The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful and we also got chatting to some of the owner's family who came in for breakfast each day and suggested places we may like to visit that we hadn't thought about. This led to the most varied and lovely day out imaginable. This is one of the nicest places we've ever stayed in in the most beautiful county we've ever been to.

Welcomed to the hotel in reception by two English ladies and were escorted by the older of whom, who was chatty and pleasant, to the room which was towards the back of the hotel adjacent to the car park area.

The room was nicely appointed with a comfortable bed. The rattan and wooden furniture complemented the understated and modern decor. The spacious bathroom with large bath and separate shower area was modern and spotlessly clean. Was a little disappointed by the bulk, fixed dispensers of toiletries, which although of reasonable quality, would be more in keeping with the expectations of a budget hotel; which Titchwell Manor certainly is not.

The small garden area outside the room door had a table and two chairs that had obviously not been cleaned for some time and a spot of weeding was needed in the borders.

Reception were contacted only the once to ask for an iron and ironing board and also a fan. The latter request was greeted by the surprised exclamation of "A fan?" which I affirmed. These requests were carried out quickly by the same older lady who unneccessarily enquired "Is the room too hot for you?"!! I found it a little unusual for such a simple request being questioned in this manner. It may well have been that they were more used to comments about the other extreme of temperature when it became clear later that most of the residents were aged 60+ (not that I have any issue with that)

Pre-dinner drinks were had in the bar area and handled efficiently. This room had the most bizarre combination of modern and traditional decor and features that I have ever seen in my life. Whilst this was quite endearing for its eccentricity, it fell some way short of striking the old meets new balance successfully thus resulting in a confused message in terms of the type of clientele that it was trying to attract as I doubt that either the young or young at heart would feel entirely comfortable here.

We were looked after during dinner by numerous waiting staff, all of whom were nice enough although did seem a little disinterested (e.g. the wine order was "lost"). Everything was served in a timely manner, albeit not with much enthusiasm or humour. The conservatory dining area was comfortable, modern and spacious with good views of the pretty walled garden and was busy with diners; most of which were either silent or speaking in hushed tones. The food was generally good value for money however starters of diced melon and shavings of serrano ham were a little lacking in quantity. My main course of steak was tough in places and had way too much fat. To her credit, one of waitresses noticed this when clearing up; chef's response was that he should have cut the fat off prior to serving and complementary coffee was offered which I felt was a little stingy and did not partake. Dessert of "Eton Tidy" was excellent and imaginative.

Breakfast was a reasonable selection of cold buffet and hot dishes were thankfully made to order and a perfectly satisfactory full English breakfast was had. Breakfast was served from 8-10am and at 9am there were several tables uncleared of dishes but it was noticable that waiters seemed keen to remove cutlery and condiments at 9:45am (perhaps just in case they had to stay any later than necessary).The ambience was also further disturbed by a builder hammering and demolishing heaven knows what. Surely this, no doubt essential maintenance, would have been less disruptive if carried out later in the morning.

This hotel could be great if the staff had a little more warmth and consideration, if the decor was more co-ordinated and, above all, if there was a good atmosphere.

We felt guilty paying so little for the marvellous food we had at Titchwell. From the excellent afternoon tea on the first day, the eating experience in the evening, through to the breakfast next day. On top of that the room was first class and the staff were all out of the top draw. Thanks for a brilliant weekend.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are recommended!

Had been meaning to stay here for some time. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. We had a herb garden room which was well furnished, a good size and very comfortable, and the requested shower room did not disappoint. We had dinner in the lovely conservatory. The tasting menu was excellent and we had some added bonuses! The second
day we did not take dinner but had a wonderful cream tea. Our stay was taken via Travelzoo and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute and look forward to our next visit.

Sublime food, perfect room and the most attentive, understanding and accommodating service we have ever known to my partners tricky dietary requirements.

Having become somewhat disillusioned at the quality of most of the high end restaurants and inns on the North Norfolk coast a stay at the Titchwell Manor completely ignited my faith in eating out.

Having never ordered a 'taster' menu before i, like most others i imagine, had preconceived ideas as to what might be placed in front of me. Having eaten out regularly throughout my entire life how much could i have possibly not tasted before? Well it seemed plenty! I was completely blown away by the quality, presentation and most of all the flavours i experienced that night. I say 'experienced that night' because that is what it was, a total experience. I dont remember ever sitting at a table debating and wowing over what we were eating. We sat and talked each course through as we ate and wanted one more mouthful when it had gone, so much so we nearly stayed another night. Instead we opted to return in a few weeks, which we are doing this month. We didn't even notice that we had sat and dined for over two and half hours.

I opted for the wine pairing too, which at £30 may sound expensive however the quality wines were costing the same and the wines were certainly ones i would never order (due to price!) ordinarily. The waiter was amazing, he talked through each course and each wine as it arrived, a very knowledgeable member of staff. The meal was certainly made more memorable with the wine-pairing, highly recommend it.

The above comments are all made without even touching on the fact that my partner is Wheat/Gluten AND Dairy intolerant. This makes dining out tricky however the Titchwell Manor had an amazing understanding of this. They also went far beyond what we expected in providing dishes. We gave them notice of course, but frankly normally we are offered few alternatives even with advance notice, but rather than this my menu was tweaked to be 'friendly' for her so we actually experienced the same meal, something she has never had before and we cannot extend our gratitude enough. This understanding continued through to breakfast too where Gluten Free bread and Soya milk was available without blank looks as to why, it felt like every member of staff had been prepped on her requirements.

We had an awesome room, The Potting Shed, would definitely urge one to consider this when booking. I understand a number of rooms have seen recent boutique makeovers so we will try one of those next time.

Titchwell Manor is an ongoing chic and contemporary make over of a beautiful building whilst retaining sympathy for its period charm in an area which is stunning to explore and even lovelier to live in. Visit.

Room Tip: Potting shed was outstanding.
