Summary

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”.

Summary

“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”.

Summary

“A meal is always a special occasion”, say fans of the “spacious and pleasant dining conservatory” of Galton Blackiston’s country house hotel, near the coast, lauding the “fantastic tasting menu and gorgeous setting”. Not everyone is keen on the one-sitting approach however, and sceptics find the cuisine “too ambitious for its own good”.

"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."

"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."
