Review on Congham Hall, The Orangery

A grand Georgian manor set in 30 acres of sublime parkland and grounds, complete with grazing horses, ponds and orchards, Congham Hall is a glory to behold. It also boasts a magnificent, near-legendary herb garden filled with around 700 different species of herb (including 50 kinds of mint) - many of which find they way into the kitchen.

Flowers, frills and the scent of pot-pourri fill the house and the relaxed mood extends to the Orangery Restaurant. Classical chandeliers, peach-hued walls hung with botanical prints, and glorious garden views set the tone, and the food aims for refinement and seasonality.

In addition to herbs, the hotel has its own beehives and a smokehouse for curing salmon and other fish. Produce from Norfolk and beyond finds its way into dishes such as pan-roasted scallops with parsnip purée and spiced figs, breast and ballotine of guinea fowl with sarladaise potatoes, carrots lyonnaise and thyme jus or roast rump of lamb with sauté kidney, salsify and lamb jus. The kitchen aims for visual impact with stunning desserts such as 'crème de chocolate blanc' with roast plums and dark chocolate sorbet. Big names and little-known tempters share the billing on the auspicious wine list.
