Details

Anna & James Holliday took over The Norfolk Mead in early 2013 and have transformed the hotel, winning several awards for cuisine and hospitality. The 13 contemporarily refurbished bedrooms are named after hedgerow plants and herbs which can be foraged for in Norfolk; Samphire, Mulberry, Hawthorn, Sorrel and so on. Three suites have free standing baths in the rooms and the other nine have large 'rain' showers. There is also Crab Apple outside, a converted garden pavilion, and Sweet Chestnut Cottage in the grounds, each sleeping up to four. James and Anna both come from catering backgrounds and Anna, who is the hard working chef, also runs Anna Duttson Events, catering for outside events and receptions. The 'garden room' opened in the grounds in 2104. It can cater for up to 150 wedding or meeting guests.

The AA (rosette) menu, which changes monthly, uses local produce wherever possible. For Dinner we started with confit of Duck, followed by a superb turbot dish, with mash potato, cockles, fennel and saffron veloite. We finshed with a sinful Banana Parfait with candidied nuts. Bar snacks are now available from 12.00 to 5.00pm. Breakfast was equally delicious with home baked bread, jams and cereals and the Mead is also developing a reputation for afternoon teas.

The hotel's front lawn leads to The Mead with wild flowers and birdlife. You might see a barn owl or an otter playing. There are splendid walks from the village and the hotel has both a rowing boat and a motor boat for hire.

The Norfolk Mead was named Signpost Hotel of the year in February 2015.
