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.

    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 !

    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.

    Such a fabulous hotel. Food, rooms and service are outstanding in every way. Without doubt, one of the best places to stay in Norfolk. Fantastic walks in the park or the beach, which is one of the most beautiful in the UK. Incredibly dog friendly too, with dog beds and bowls provided, as well as fantastic biscuits! Very highly recommended

    Stayed two nights with my partner and our dog - service was great, food was exceptional, staff were very accommodating, and the location was amazing. Room was a good size and clean. The estate was gorgeous and the beach was great! We’ll be back ☺️

    Noticed the ridiculous and unfair reviews from people who have not actually stayed at the Victoria but were unable to get a pint so decided to post one star reviews. Clearly the management have decided to change the business model to even out custom fairly for guests over the year, and much more sensibly the locals who work here. Having just returned from a weekend at the Victoria I can see why, and it works. The 5 star review is entirely down to the absolutely wonderful staff who made our weekend so special, a genuinely lovely group of people who all went the extra mile. DB&B was very good value, the breakfast was superb, and all of local provinance. The complimentary mini bar a terrific surprise, access to all of the Holkham Estate and a parking pass for all of their various attractions was another unexpected plus. A surprise gem. Top tip, it's a very dog friendly hotel, great if you love dogs, if you don't the Ancient House next door is dog free so bear that in mind when booking.
