Review on Strattons
Les and Vanessa Scott's immaculately maintained, Palladian-style villa is not only an exemplary hotel, it also boasts impeccable 'eco' credentials. The whole place is run on environmentally friendly lines, from the design of the rooms, heating and re-cycling to the food.
Vivid artwork and sculptures add a flourish to the dining room, which is attractively decorated in natural colours. The menu changes each day and it runs to four courses based on Norfolk produce. In summer, you might begin with Cromer crab and Bloody Mary jelly with steamed samphire and chilli mayo or pea and courgette timbale with garden rocket. To follow, there could be baked Narborough trout with vegetarian haggis and spring onion mash or a parcel of Papworth pork with spinach purée and lentil gravy.
The choice of tip-top British cheeses includes representatives from the Norfolk renaissance, while desserts feature seasonal sorbets as well as exotic creations such as mango and coconut fool with almond and lemon biscotti. Wines are arranged by style, with informative notes and fair prices. On Sunday evenings, residents are offered a short tapas menu, which can be served in the restaurant or delivered direct to your room.
