The Old Rectory

103 Yarmouth Road, Thorpe St Andrew, NORWICH, NR7 0HF

2 rosettes

Creepers cover the large Georgian house giving the impression the garden is attempting to reclaim the land - but the red-brick former rectory is here to stay, built to last back in the day and thriving in the 21st century as a country hotel. The centre of Norwich is only a couple of miles away, but you'd never know it once ensconced in the drawing room. The dining room has a traditional finish, a room of generous proportions and period details, and is the setting for candle-lit dinners (afternoon tea is also available). The daily-changing menu has a good showing of regional produce and keeps to a sensibly manageable choice of three dishes per course. Starters of potted dressed Cromer crab or beetroot- and dill-cured organic salmon are typical of the output. Among main courses, roasted fillet of brill is served with a warm vegetable and potato salad and a saffron and brown shrimp dressing, and Gressingham guinea fowl might feature as marinated breast and slow-roasted thigh (served with buttery Savoy cabbage).
