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”. Many who report were staying over too, and certainly don’t tire of the experience of eating in: “four wonderful dinners over four consecutive nights that didn’t put a foot wrong”. “There’s a large wine list at all prices.

“Exquisite tasting menus (a taste explosion!), with wines setting each course off to perfection”, won renewed enthusiastic endorsements for Galton Blackiston’s acclaimed country house hotel, near the coast. The odd niggle is raised – “not particularly innovative”… “too many rich sauces and not enough vegetable to balance (this is 2016!)” – but all reports on the cuisine are fundamentally very upbeat and most are “fantastic”, while “staff try to accommodate all requests”.

Morston Hall Restaurant Diner Reviews
"We always try and eat at Morston Hall whenever we are in north Norfolk. We have been there for Dinner, Sunday lunch and afternoon tea. The food and service is always outstanding, and the ever-changing menu has delivered food that is on our "lifetime best" list. The current restaurant manager and head chef are wonderful, keen and and approachable, and always happy to talk about their offer/creations. My wife and I can never work out what separates Morston Hall's one star offer from two star restaurants we've eaten at, as Galton Blackiston and his team consistently deliver at the highest level. As well as excellent food and attentive (but unobtrusive) service, the decor and cleanliness of the restaurant is second to none. We are looking forward currently to testing the breakfasts as well as we going to stay for a couple of nights after Easter. I'm sure we won;t be disappointed."
"Galton continues to excell. His inventive cuisine is matched by attentive and charming staff. Décor is somewhat bland though, lacking the character of the cooking."
"Very good food and service with an ever changing menu"
"Out standing. Goes from strength to strengthen. Never disappoints. We love the standard of service that is delivered with efficiency yet relaxed . Each course is stand out. Keep it up Morston Hall. 2 Michelin must be around the corner"
