Upon arriving at Stower Grange, a mere 15-minute drive from Norwich, we were taken away by the beauty of the 17th-century building and the autumnal ivy that covered the exterior. Set in stunning grounds, the 3-Star Country House Hotel has 11 well-appointed bedrooms, an AA-Rosette restaurant, as well as a bar and is an ideal and convenient base to explore Nelson’s county.
Upon entering from the cold, we were warmly welcomed by Manager Christine who kindly took our winter coats from us. She then guided us through to a delightfully cosy room where we had a tipple whilst casting our eyes over the well-rounded à la carte menu, consisting of both meat and fish options, as well as a couple of vegetarian dishes.
After choosing our supper for the evening, we were shown to our table in the formal, yet relaxed dining room, consisting of charming artwork and candlelight, accompanied with gentle background music, creating a warm and intimate atmosphere.
Before our starter, we were presented with fresh bread, warm from the oven, and butter – a combination which is hard to beat in my opinion! After much deliberation, I decided to start with the crispy chilli beef accompanied with an Asian salad and fresh coriander – this was truly tantalising to the taste buds!Buy Now
