Description: At Andover House Restaurant, we are incredibly proud of our 2 AA Rosettes and Michelin Good Food Guide acknowledgement. Bursting with warmth and character, our lounge-bar, restaurant and Sky Sports lounge offer a place for the convivial, sociable buzz; a place to escape, chat and dine in hospitable surroundings. Select from the seasonal menu including chargrill steaks and Norfolk fish and meats. Both offer something a little different, but perfectly suited to the season and local ingredients available. The wine and champagne selection is picked with great care by the Owner. As well as the main restaurant, we offer a private dining space for those celebrating in bigger numbers. Our large table seats up to 18 guests, the perfect opportunity to feel truly spoilt with your family, friends or colleagues.

Really nice good, presented very well. Service was just right, not fast food quick but equally we weren't kept waiting for an excessive length of time. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Really great to hear that the timing was just right for you. There is nothing more frustrating than being rushed during an evening out so thank you for mentioning this. The team will be pleased!

Your comment about the fillet steak will filter in as music to Chef's ears! Seems our guests are loving our new chargrill as much as we are :-) Thank you so much for taking time to review us. Incredibly helpful to the team and Head Chef.

“Nothing short of amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

My partner and I visted here Saturday night and I have to say what an amazing restaurant. From the contemporary decor to amazing food. We were impressed with every element of our meal. This is the best meal I've had while living in great yarmouth ever... I've lived here 27 years!! Our taste buds were excited as we ate each course. The cost of the meal was exceptional value for money we would have happily paid more!!! The staff could have not been more helpful, friendly, attentive, or more well spoken if they tried. To some up this has become our new favourite place to dine and we shall be visting again very shortly.

“Lovely food, bit pretentious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

This place is very different to most restaurants in great Yarmouth (that we saw). Very contemporary decor. The food was lovely but quite pricey. They charge extra for side dishes, including potatoes (are they really a side dish?). I found the service a bit pretentious e.g the waiting staff wore white gloves to serve, but the staff were really friendly and the atmosphere was still relaxed. We weren't rushed into moving on to dessert etc. Overall a nice place to go to.

Hi Caroline. Thank you for reviewing us. Really pleased that you enjoyed your meal with us and found the atmosphere relaxed. We decided to let our staff wear gloves instead of using tea towels or kitchen roll to handle the hot plates. This was 6 years ago and no burnt fingers yet!
I hope you didn't find us too 'pretentious'! We are a very chilled out bunch with one goal; that every guest walks out feeling like they have been to a lovely, welcoming restaurant with beautiful, fulfilling food :-)
