Popped in for a late lunch after visiting the nearby Holkham Hall. We didn't have a reservation, but miraculously they found us a table on a busy Bank Holiday. Slightly raised eyebrows at the prices, but when the food arrived, they were justified. Tasty and...More

Fish and chips and burger were good, deserts excellent and service not bad either. Would definitely go again, but have to save up first!

A lovely place to sit outside after walking through the pinewoods and we expect to pay a premium but the food we had today was complacent. Stale bread, ungenerous potions of half warm fries and lazily assembled puddings for £8.25 EACH. You're trading on your...More

Description
Standing at the gateway to Holkham and the National Nature Reserve, the Victoria is a classic English inn owned by the Coke family and managed by the Holkham estate. There are ten elegant bedrooms, the bar and dining rooms offer a relaxed blend of style and comfort. The “Vic” serves delicious locally sourced food, much of it grown and raised on the estate with a bold emphasis on freshness, simplicity and value. Holkham has been a leading agricultural estate since the 1800’s when Thomas William Coke bought the site and the young Queen Victoria elevated him to the peerage in recognition of his contribution to farming in 1837. The name of the proposed new inn must have been inevitable when it opened its doors in 1838. The Victoria re-opened in Spring 2013 following extensive refurbishment.
