Local Restaurants

Some more of our favourites (note in high season/school holiday, booking asap in advance is highly recommended):

The Victoria (Holkham) – located at the entrance to Holkham Hall, and really handy for either visiting the Holkham Estate or Brancaster beach.

The Duck (Stanhoe) – the nearest pub/restaurant to the Cottage (just 2 miles away). Menu varies each week, sourcing lots of local produce

Number 29 (Burnham Market) – popular, “buzzy” restaurant, the food is cooked with almost exclusively local ingredients on an open-flame grill. Lovely outdoor space (BBQ and pizza oven) in the summer 

Socius (Burnham Market) – Relaxed, sociable dining (small plates, a la carte and Tasting Menu). Michelin Guide recommended and AA ‘Restaurant of the Year’ in England’
