The Victoria Inn

Dining

Due to the current situation regarding coronavirus, The Victoria Inn will be closed until 1st July, subject to official guidance updates. All bookings during this time will be cancelled and fully refunded.Local, fresh and seasonal

The bar and dining rooms offer a relaxed blend of style and comfort. The Victoria serves delicious locally sourced food, much of it grown and raised on the Holkham Estate with a bold emphasis on freshness, simplicity and value.

Our main themes are local and seasonal. The quality of our ingredients is paramount, whether it be fish, shellfish or samphire from the north Norfolk coast, beef from our farms, lamb or pork from one of our farm tenants or summer fruit from a fruit farm along the coast. In the winter we serve wild game from the family shoot and venison from the estate’s herd of Fallow Deer.

You can eat in the bar, the cosy gallery or our spacious conservatory which has views over the Holkham National Nature Reserve and is open to all. Bookings can be taken for the gallery and conservatory, and dining in the bar is on a first come first served basis.

Breakfast is served from 8am to 10am (non-residents are welcome).
Lunch is served from 12noon every day with last orders at 3pm.
Bar Snacks are served daily from 12noon to 6pm.
Dinner is served from 6.30pm every evening with last orders at 9pm.

We offer a children’s menu available during lunch and dinner service and can cater for most dietary requirements. We will always try to accommodate any special requests. Dogs are welcome in all dining areas.

The bar is open from 11am to 11pm (Sundays 12noon to 10.30pm).

*Bookings are advised to avoid disappointment during busy times. To make your reservation telephone 01328 711008.

Wherever possible our kitchen uses ingredients grown and raised on the estate; game from the shoot, beef from the farm, venison from the park’s deer herd and vegetables from the walled garden.
