Very occasionally we go to Sprowston Manor for a couple of nights away. In recent years the whole hotel has been refurbished, it's one of the best examples of the Marriott Golf Resort in the U.K.
The restaurant, which now delights under its new name, has been patchy in the past, although it has usually been on the good rather than the poor side. So we had booked into it for one of our evenings on this visit, and were eager to see what it was like.
I am delighted to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our evening there, from start to finish the reception by the staff was good, service was efficient but very friendly, and the food was pretty good. This restaurant used to have two AA Red Rosettes, I don't know if they still have them but on the evidence of our visit it deserves them.
We started with broccoli soup, and a confection of black pudding and belly pork with apple sauce. Then for mains we had sea bass fillet with Lyonnaise potatoes, and turbot fillet on lentils. To finish we had chocolate pannacotta and flourless chocolate cake with frozen berries. None of these dishes was lacking in any way. We are big fish fans, both the sea bass and particularly the turbot were delicious. Presentation of the dishes was elegant without being too fussy.
This may be a hotel restaurant, but then it's a really nice hotel and the restaurant reflects this. There appear to have been some poor reviews but our experience was exactly the opposite. They have had glitches in the past but this time the experience was pretty good. Try it.
