“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Lovely lobster, lamb and vegetables that arrives with roast. - really tasty.
The whole place is quite quaint and like going back in time. Nice staff.
Very welcoming - would feel comfortable going again either dressed up or casual.
I would recommend allowing plenty of time. Not an experience to be rushed but I see that as a good thing.

“My favourite meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

In the Bolton's Bistro next door to the Sandcliff Hotel was Lobster Thermidor and it was just excellent, with home made ice cream to follow.. a wonderful meal with attentive staff. Good idea to book a table here!

“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

This was one of the best meals I have had in an English restaurant for some considerable time. My (female) friend & I spend a few days in Norfolk each year, & we returned, after a couple of year's break to Bolton's Bistro, & we were very glad that we did! There is quite a bit of banter, so you do require a sense of humour, but the food was superb!
The lemon sole was unbelievable! One to try, without a doubt. Compliments to the chef, but also the maître d' , who has been there in all the years we have been going - a cheeky chappie, in the nicest possible way!
It was a bit noisy because there was a party of golfers in, but they are regulars & were certainly bringing in more money than the 2 of us.

Had lovely cauliflower soup for starters followed by a prawn and crayfish salad. Really top class. The soup was the best soup i have ever eaten.
