The Neptune Restaurant with Rooms

85 Old Hunstanton Road, Old Hunstanton, HUNSTANTON, PE36 6HZ

3 rosettes

A short hop from the beach at Old Hunstanton, this Georgian coaching inn has been gently boutiqued into the 21st century by Kevin and Jacki Mangeolles. Few are immune to the charm of the north Norfolk coast these days, and the small restaurant here plays its part in the scene with a display of local artwork, real fires and a light relaxing colour scheme. Clean presentations and clarity of flavour, along with rarefied technical ability, are the hallmarks of Mangeolles' style. Fish and seafood are from just up the coast, and the regional game is among the best in England. That last might be roast quail, tenderly succulent and complemented intelligently with the freshness of a leafy green bean salad, sweetly rich aubergine purée and shallot dressing. For the riches of the sea, look to accurately timed sea bass with artichoke, a sweet potato dumpling and wild garlic, while an earthier route might be via a duo of pork belly and veal sweetbread with salt-baked leek, shiitakes and creamed celeriac. Poached savarin sponge is the centrepiece of a delectable dessert that also builds in sweet local strawberries with a matching sorbet, as well as an acidic hit from concentrated lemon curd.
