Food & Drink

The Crooked Barn

The Crooked Barn Restaurant was opened in 1996 and its uniquely “crooked 16th-century beams” provide a wonderful ambience to enjoy the food of Head Chef Keith Parton. We’ve had 12 consecutive years of obtaining two AA Rosettes, which is a testament to the quality of the food. Keith has introduced a variety of daily specials and exciting dishes.

We pride ourselves on using the freshest, local ingredients we can find and ensuring that we take advantage of seasonal foods. Our proximity to the coast provides us with excellent access to the best seafood products on our doorstep.

Our Head Chef Keith Parton and his team are constantly ensuring that we keep refreshing the menu with new and interesting dishes and produce a range of daily specials. Guests of the hotel are treated to homemade biscuits that are waiting for them on arrival in their room and diners can enjoy the range of freshly made homemade breads and fudge, which have proved to be so popular that they are now on sale upon request.

Eve’s Bar & Lounge

Relax in the stylish newly-created Eve’s Bar and enjoy a cream tea, a pre-dinner drink, or a bar snack. Enjoy the panoramic views of the garden, ponds and watch the sailboats go by on Oulton Broad.

Enjoy an intimate drink in the unique hayloft lounge above the bar that has beautiful views across the Broad. On warmer days the large Bifold doors open the bar to the gardens creating an almost al fresco atmosphere. We have a fantastic range of bar snacks, from homemade flavoured cashew, peanuts, and walnuts to tempting sandwiches and our take on some old favourites, all using locally sourced fresh produce. Enjoy a picnic hamper and a glass of bubbly in the beautiful grounds of Ivy House.
