Getting to visit Congham Hall earlier on Monday was exactly what I needed to relax and unwind ahead of a hectic week of deadlines, cats and travelling (more on that soon). Congham Hall kindly invited myself and a guest to a three course meal, with wine in their beautiful restaurant.
We had a tour of the hotel, it’s truly beautiful. Set in amazing grounds with its own spa, library, orchard and herb garden. It’s just six miles outside of Kings Lynn in the village of Grimston.
We settled down to a glass of wine and to pour over the menu for a while. Out on the terrace, we had some great views of the orchard and surrounding fields. It didn’t take me long to choose what I wanted to eat (despite the fact that I can be quite fussy).
For my main course I had a rare breed pork taster dish which featured all sorts of beautiful cuts of pork along with sweet potato puree, vegetables and edible flowers. The pork belly was the star of the show, it was juicy and just melted in my mouth. I wish there had been more of it! The edible flowers were a nice touch, they just gave a little summery edge to the dish.
We also ordered a couple of sides, a Parmesan salad and the honeyed parsnips. Both were fantastic. We did like the look of the triple cooked chips but when we went to order them we were told the potatoes weren’t good enough at the moment so they were only able to cook the chips twice.
This would be the perfect spot for a spa break or to visit after a day out in Kings Lynn.
