A “magical” hideaway in rural Norfolk – Galton Blackiston’s “elegant” country house hotel, in a marvellous location near the coast, seemingly “just gets better and better”, delivering “very special” cuisine (“balanced, fresh, clean-tasting and flavoursome”), served in a single sitting nightly from “an immaculate, set seven-course menu that changes daily”.

Service is classy. It’s excellent in every way”.
“A different tasting menu every day matched with wines” adds up to “culinary heaven” at Galton Blackiston’s well-known country house hotel, near the coast, also praised for its “creative, seasonal approach” and “excellent execution”.

Morston Hall Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Truly spectacular. Excellent food, hospitable surroundings, delightful service."
"Faultless from start to finish. Outstanding cooking with exceptional service. A must to go to. "
"More expensive but worth it. "
"I really can’t praise Morston Hall highly enough. The food - 7 course tasting menu - was divine and memorable ( and I’m not usually a fan of tasting menus) it was fresh, seasonal and flavoursome. Service was perfect - charming , well informed staff. The mood was great, too. A spacious dining room, so no overcrowding, but a buzzy atmosphere. A place to revisit!"
"The perfect all round package. Superb food, excellent service, and fabulous accommodation. On more than one occasion we have been fortunate enough to have Gaulton visit our table during dinner to say hello and ask for our view on the evening. A charming humble incredible chef! Can't wait to return."
