The Victoria is ideally situated just a few minutes’ walk from the golden sands of Holkham beach and at the gates of my family’s Palladian ancestral home, Holkham Hall. It is perfectly placed for discovering the county’s windswept coastline, seaside towns and villages.

It is arguable that our main attraction though is the food we serve in our restaurant. Our main themes are fresh, local and seasonal. The quality of our ingredients is paramount, whether it be shellfish, fish or samphire from the north Norfolk coast, beef from our farms on the Holkham Estate, lamb or pork from one of our farm tenants or soft summer fruit from a friend’s fruit farm along the coast and, in the winter only, wild game from our family shoot or venison from our herd of Fallow Deer.

You can eat in the gallery or our spacious orangery, which has views over the Holkham National Nature Reserve. All dining areas are dog-friendly.

Our dining times are:

  • Breakfast is served 8am-10am (for residents only)
  • Lunch is served 12noon-2.30pm (please note, pre-booking is advised)
  • Dinner is served 6.00pm-9pm (please note, residents have priority and therefore pre-booking is advised)

As per all listings on Dog Friendly Norfolk, we accept well behaved dogs.

    Would highly recommend if you need an indulgent few days or need a location for a special anniversary or occasion. All the staff could not be more polite or helpful. Rooms are immaculately presented throughout with some nice complementary items on arrival. Great selection of options for breakfast and everything was cooked to perfection. I recommend booking for the restaurant as it can be very busy. Evening meal: Great atmosphere/dining experience with the right time between courses to talk and enjoy the wine, all courses cooked to perfection with great flavours and taste. Dog friendly. Made use of the extras provided when staying: discount for the hall and free parking at multiple locations in the area. Overall a great experience for our 25 wedding anniversary and will definitely be staying again.

    I took my mother for lunch at The Victoria after a lovely walk around the grounds of Holkham Hall (which I’d highly recommend). From the moment we walked in to book a table right through to the time we left I could not praise the friendliness of all the staff highly enough. The young lady that booked us our table was extremely warm & welcoming. Then the young man who welcomed us into the restaurant was extremely friendly too. He also had time for my pet dog and was quick to offer her a snack. When we sat at our table the staff were extremely attentive, very polite and it made our lunchtime experience a really pleasant one. On top of that the food was delicious, (the Cottage pie was perfect !) the house red was spot on and I would certainly recommend The Victoria to anyone looking for good food, a warm welcome and friendly staff. I’ll certainly be revisiting and I shall be bringing along several friends. Thank you !

    Fantastic - service, food, room, location - all amazing and can’t recommend highly enough. We stayed in the Scarborough room overlooking stunning views. The room was incredibly comfortable. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel and were blown away by the meals - locally sourced, fresh, stunning ingredients and tastes. The location is a five minute walk from the award winning Holkham beach and also a short walk from Holkham estate - a dreamy location. All in all - 10/10

    We used to call in for a drink after walking in the area. No more! We were amazed to be curtly turned away as we weren't residents despite the bar being empty! We will not be going back, shame as we used to enjoy the vibrant atmosphere. Would give zero stars if allowed!

    Just returned from a weekend staying at The Victoria in Holkham and it was a perfect break. The hotel is lovely and right next to the beautiful Holkham Estate and the stunning beach. The staff were super helpful and friendly and the food delicious. I highly recommend a stay here, especially if you have a dog as they are very much welcomed here! I knocked a star off as my room was very small (the website details this and I was warned on booking), however everyone else in the party had lovely rooms.
