Warm spiced Pears at The Grove Restaurant.

There is nowhere more beautiful than the landscaped gardens at The Grove to enjoy the explosion of colour as Summer gives way to Autumn, transforming vibrant greens to shades of gold, orange and brown.

Plants and flowers also begin to bear fruit and our orchard is alive with activity as harvest season begins.

Although the gardens are no longer green, we still have plenty to offer our guests. Warm spiced apple and blackberry crumble is a very popular menu option and families come to stay throughout the autumn months to enjoy those walks along the beach, which are no longer packed with children, and to have a relaxing swim in our heated indoor pool and complete your stay with a relaxing holistic massage from The Massage Hut

Our Autumn offers start after the school holidays, with Dinner, Bed and Breakfast at £165, and our Sunday night offer at £155, which includes a superior room, bottle of Prosecco, and a newspaper.

Autumn is a great time for bird watching in Norfolk. With Pink Footed Geese among some of the multitude of species migrating south from the Arctic Circle. Norfolk is blessed with wonderful bird watching locations, such as Tichwell marshes, Cley-Next-The-Sea, Blakeney and Pensthorpe.

There are also lots of events on; Apple Days at Oxburgh Hall and Gressenhall, Heritage Days in Norwich focusing on Norwich Castle, Deepdale Arts Festival, Halloween fun at Wroxham Barns and Dinosoar Adventure, and of course, The Norfolk Cycling and Walking Festival in October.

There are also two National Trust properties on our doorstep, Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Hall. The Sandringham Estate, holiday home to The Queen, is about 40 minutes away, up the coast.

Sheringham plays host to the increasingly popular 40s weekend in September, when people come from far and wide to dress up and experience life as it was in the 40s.

Don’t forget our own wine tasting and tasting menu night on 29th November, where we are showcasing some fine wines from vintner Peter Graham Wines paired with a seven course tasting menu.

Our menu changes seasonally, autumn dishes include meat, locally sourced venison, sustainably sourced North Sea fish, local mussels, lots of fresh garden produce, including legumes, onions apples, berries and even the occasional peach. You can see our current a la carte menu here.
