Michelen Star North Norfolk
Morston Hall is an old country house on the north norfolk coast (in Morston). It is now a hotel and restaurant. We went in Feb 2006 for sunday lunch. It was excellent. Tasteful decor, relaxed atmosphere with little whisper factor and very good food. We started with a small leak/gruyere tart, then had a small soup, something with bacon foam. Not sure what bacon foam is, but it was lovely. Then there was a kind of split main dish, firstly fish, chips and peas dish, then a roast beef main. Fish was lightly battered, pea sauce thing particularly nice, very fresh tasting. Beef course was the big highlight. Beef perfectly cooked with a tasty marmalade & onion topping. Yorkshire pudding was excellent, I reckon its made with cream because I think its the best yourkshire pudding I've ever tasted. Veg and potatoes were good, the jus just the right thickness and richness. Pudding was either a chocolate pie thing or creme brulee. Nice, but not amazing.
You can do a nice walk from Morston to the next village (Blakeney) to walk off some of the calories!
A great combination lunch, staff excellent. We had a walk along the coast from morston to blickling after lunch, experience overall lovely Roast beef with yorkshire pudding.
