Galton Blackiston’s well-known country house establishment has a gorgeous location, near the north Norfolk coast. Long known as a major culinary destination, it inspired no negative commentary last year, but rather very consistent praise for its “faultless” all-round performance. “The nightly menu is never the same but dictated by the available ingredients, and the preparation is exceptional”.

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. 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”. Aside from the odd niggle about the inevitably high price, feedback is uniformly upbeat.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Reviewed 5 months,

"Four beautifully presented, exquisite courses for Sunday lunch. £55 is expensive, but not alarming for the quality. The amuse-bouches are richly savoury and intense. The smoked salmon was the best we've ever tasted. Wine by the glass is one of the best aspects of the restaurant: a broad, judiciously chosen variety, at reasonable prices. Pommes Anna were exquisite; the carrots were exceptional. There are ample staff, and they are warm and knowledgeable. Excellent."
