Always surprised that this continues to feature well. We gave it another visit but again the food was poorly cooked, the service was sullen and overall we were left wondering why we had paid their prices. Come here if you want to say you have been but there are much better valued places around.

My wife and I were staying at Strattons and were happy to be booked in for dinner in the restaurant. We were seated in the "lounge" for pre prandial drinks and were confronted by a huge cocktail menu, from which my wife selected one. I wanted a beer but the only offering was bottled, described as if it were a... More

Very surprised by the exterior of this hidden gem in such a dowdy town....what an oasis! Visited for evening meal. Staff friendly and helpful and able to talk through the menu. Plenty of options on the starter and dessert menu...missed chicken on menu in mains section....maybe next time. Served in good time, very decent sized portions. All cooked well and... More

We went to Strattons on the Saturday before Valentines, which they had decided was Valentines' night as far as they were concerned. This meant a fixed price menu, at £45 per head, wine extra. Two sittings were offered - at 6.30 and 8.00. We took the later one in order not to feel rushed. From one's first sight of the... More

Staying at Strattons so had dinner the night we arrived. Drinks in the upstairs bar area in front of the fire while we checked the menu. Started with Pan Fried Mackerel and Smoked Haddock Souffle - both really good; well cooked and nicely presented. Main course was Salmon & Leek Veloute, and the Slow Cooked Brisket of Beef - both...

Nice dinner - tasty and everything well cooked - a more sophisticated dining experience. Liked the more quirky style décor but maybe expected it to feel a little more special but enjoyed very much and would recommend the restaurant or hotel on that basis. IPA on menu not available which was disappointing given it is currently in fashion.

we always eat from the Strattons restaurant when we stay at the hotel and the food never ever lets us down. Well worth a visit with family and friends or a ramonatic meal for couples.

The food was delicious but the staff were miserable and the atmosphere was more than chilly, the young staff openly and within earshot discussed how they were planning to leave their employment due to their treatment by the owners/ managers, very off putting and put a downer on what should have been a great night out with friends!

Read so much about Strattons over the years yet never found an excuse to visit. It's halfway between us and friends so we booked a table for dinner and set off. I know Swaffham, but had never noticed the narrow entrance to what is an enchanting place. The garden, reception and dining room set the scene for an awesome meal.... More
