Eat, shop and stay

The Victoria

The Victoria is a 4 star hotel ideally situated moments from the golden sands of Holkham beach and at the gates of Holkham Park – a perfect location to discover Norfolk’s windswept coastline, seaside towns and spectacular wildlife.

We have twenty individually decorated rooms across two historical buildings. Our rooms range from small, cosy doubles to large luxury suites, and we welcome dogs in our rooms in the main building (including the restaurant).

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do here at The Victoria, from heating the building with woodchip from Holkham Estate, to closing the loop on compostables. In 2016, we received a Gold Green Tourism Award and we continue to keep sustainability at the core of our business through our action plan, WONDER.

Our proudest achievement, and arguably our main attraction, is the food we serve in our restaurant, for which we received two AA Rosettes in 2023. Head Chef Michael Chamberlain works with local producers to create delicious menus based on the three key principles of fresh, local, and seasonal.

Whether you are looking for a restful break away in the stunning Norfolk countryside, or to sample the local delights of our restaurant menu, we would be delighted to welcome you to The Victoria and look forward to seeing you soon.

Dining

The Victoria’s carefully curated menu showcases the very best locally sourced ingredients. 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 vegetables from Holkham’s Walled Garden. In the winter, we serve wild game from the family shoot and venison from the estate’s herd of Fallow Deer.

Our orangery offers magnificent views over the Holkham National Nature Reserve, while our restaurant provides a cosier feel where, in the cooler months, you can warm up by our log fire.

Our restaurant is open for lunch and dinner to all. We do recommend pre-booking to avoid disappointment by calling us on 01328 711008, emailing victoria@holkham.co.uk or using our booking form below the menus.

What our customers say about The Vic

‘The receptionists were so helpful, accommodating and friendly. Thank you for a wonderful stay. So genuinely dog friendly, with beds, bowls and treats for the dogs. The room was beautiful and spotless. The restaurant and bar staff were helpful and friendly. The location is the best. A very special treat but worth it.’

Maria Ingram, Google Review

What our customers say about The Vic

‘We have just returned from a 3 night stay with our 2 dogs. As ever all of the staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. The food was very good and it’s such a great base for a lot of long and varied walks. The Coasthopper bus stops right outside which means you can walk as far as you want without worrying about the return leg. We have already booked our next visit.’

Tracy F, Tripadvisor Review

What our customers say about The Vic

‘We enjoyed another great two night stay at The Victoria Inn. The staff and management were friendly and professional. The food was superb and of the highest standard of quality and service. It was on a par with top restaurants we have eaten at in London. And our dog was made very welcomed. We’ve booked again for next year, this time with our family!’

Barbara, Tripadvisor Review

What our customers say about The Vic

‘The staff were attentive without being intrusive, were scrupulously polite and thoroughly professional.  Our room – No. 2 – was light, spacious and well kept.  The food was excellent – beautifully cooked and served – and I note that much of it was sourced from the Holkham estate and that was evident from the taste. Suffice it to say, my wife and I look forward to returning to the Victoria, probably next year.’

Dick Kirby
