Eat, shop and stay

The Victoria

We are delighted to welcome you to The Victoria to dine in our restaurant and stay in our beautiful rooms. The Vic is 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 countryside.

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

It is arguable that our main attraction is the food we serve in our restaurant. Our main themes are fresh, local and seasonal, and we are proud of each and every dish we produce.

To book, call us on 01328 711008, email victoria@holkham.co.uk or use our booking buttons. Pre-booking is highly recommended to avoid disappointment, and our restaurant and bar is open to diners and residents only.

We 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’s provides a cosier feel. In the cooler months, warm up by our log fire.

Please note, hotel residents have priority for lunch and dinner tables and therefore pre-booking is advised if you wish to dine with us.

Prices

Rates differ depending on the season, the size of the room and the number of guests staying. Rooms vary from our ‘cosy’ size to our large family suites.

Our tariffs can include bed and breakfast only, or you can opt for dinner to be included too.

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.

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.’

Green tourism

We’re inspired by our natural environment and we want to protect it. We are committed to being as environmentally and ethically responsible as possible.

We heat the hotel using a biomass boiler fuelled exclusively by Holkham woodchip: the woodland is certified under the UK Woodland Assurance Standard (UKWAS) and is able to manage its woodland to sustainably support its biomass projects. Wherever possible, our ingredients come from local suppliers within a 50 mile radius. In fact, many ingredients come from the estate itself, including venison, beef, lamb and vegetables. Any food waste is collected by ReFood who produce green energy through anaerobic digestion.

We were voted no. 2 in Visit England’s Guide to Eco-Friendly Breaks in England – January 2022. After joining Green Tourism in 2016, we were awarded a Gold Award in our first assessment the following year and we’re delighted to have maintained this high standard since.
