Review on Morston Hall
Occupying a prime spot on the North Norfolk coast, this flint-walled Jacobean mansion is surrounded by lovely, well-tended gardens. Inside it is full of flowers and paintings – especially in the conservatory and restaurant, which are at he heart of the set-up.
Chef and co/owner Galton Blackiston has a Michelin star under his belt and his cooking is full of self-assured style and commendable details. Dinner (one sitting only) is a daily-changing four-course menu that makes the best of Norfolk's abundant larder.
A typical evening might open with confit of duck on sauté Lyonnaise potatoes with thyme-infused jus, before grilled fillet of sea bass on fennel duxelle with sauce vierge. The main course could be roast fillet of beef on fondant potato with buttered broad beans, glazed turnips, a rich beef jus and basil sauce, while proceedings might conclude with poached peach and vanilla ice in a 'tulip basket' with raspberry coulis or a platter of European cheeses.
Backing up the food is a stellar wine list (arranged by grape variety) with plenty of options by the glass and a broad spread of styles and character. Morston Hall is also open for breakfast – a boon for locals, travellers and yachtsmen from nearby Morston Quay.
