The Victoria Inn

The Victoria Inn


CLOSURE NOTICE: Following the government’s announcement on 31st October, we regret that we will be closing from 10pm on Wednesday 4th of November until restrictions are lifted, which current guidance suggests will be 2nd of December. We will therefore be cancelling all room bookings from Wednesday 4th of November until Thursday 3rd of December. Reception will be available from 9am-5pm. Click here to find out more.

The Victoria Inn is ideally situated just a few minutes’ walk from the golden sands of Holkham beach and at the gates of my family’s Palladian ancestral home, Holkham Hall. It is perfectly placed for discovering the county’s windswept coastline, seaside towns and villages.

It is arguable that our main attraction though is the food we serve in our restaurant. Our main themes are fresh, local and seasonal. The quality of our ingredients is paramount, whether it be shellfish, fish or samphire from the north Norfolk coast, beef from our farms on the Holkham Estate, lamb or pork from one of our farm tenants or soft summer fruit from a friend’s fruit farm along the coast and, in the winter only, wild game from our family shoot or venison from our herd of Fallow Deer.

We offer a small selection of hand-picked wines to complement your meal. Our bar offer consists of a limited selection of quality recognised brands from local and international suppliers to complement the experience at The Victoria.

All of the above would be for nothing if it were not for our staff, of whom I am immensely proud. We are so lucky to have such a dedicated and professional team. But perhaps their most alluring quality is their relaxed good nature, and it is that which is so important in welcoming you, our guests. I sincerely hope you choose to visit us, even if only for a pint after a brisk walk on Holkham Beach.
