Restaurant & Private Dining
At Stower Grange we pride ourselves on using the best, fresh ingredients and buying local produce wherever possible. In keeping with the style of the hotel the restaurant is traditional in its approach to Sunday lunch. Our butcher, located within a mile, provides us with excellent meat sourced locally from Norfolk farms. Breakfasts are a delight with local free range eggs, very tasty bacon and sausages second to none!
The AA Rosette restaurant at Stower Grange overlooks the gardens and is locally renowned as a ‘special place’ to dine.
James Cox, our Chef, changes the menu monthly and offers a tempting selection of dishes, including vegetarian options.
If you wish to host a private lunch or dinner, we can accommodate you in our private dining room and Lee will work with you to create a menu tailored to your own specific requirements.
The restaurant has easy wheelchair access and cloakroom facilities for disabled guests on the ground floor.
We have a sample LUNCH MENU (PDF) for a more informal experience, but still using the finest ingredients.
We also offer a very special AFTERNOON TEA(PDF) – treat yourself or someone special to our Traditional Afternoon Tea or Cream Tea for £18.50 per person.
