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.

    Absolutely perfect for celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. Staff were wonderful. Food was superb. Really good menu. Our room was incredibly comfortable, we stayed in Ancient House. We had a great stay. After years of visiting & saying how great it'd be to do our favourite walks & return to the Vic for drinks & food & staying over. It didn't disappoint.

    Four of us visited for just a main course, which was very good. Outside was very busy, but near empty inside, plenty of staff in the dining area, reception etc, but we weren't asked once how our meal was and we didn't actually have a single member of staff visit our table after they put down the main meal, which is pretty shocking. They also forgot an additional side salad we ordered. We most definitely would have ordered extra drinks and possibly a dessert if anyone would have made their way to our table in the one hour or so window. Really poor service, which is a shame, because the food was great.

    We celebrated my birthday here with a wonderful dinner and a one night stay. This wasn't our first time and like always the food was great, the staff is very helpful and polite and the room is very comfortable. The room, dinner and breakfast package is great value.

    Visited for dinner. Extremely happy with the service and standard of food. Plenty on offer for all tastes. The restaurant is located within Holkham Hall so you not only benefit from the great food, you also benefit from the beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended, but book your table before arriving.

    Fantastic meal, we both had three courses the highlight of which was the venison burger. It was lovely to see so many people with their dogs enjoying their meal. It was also great to see the chef come out and discuss a couples meal with them too.
