In an elegant country house, 1559 at Sprowston Manor offers a seasonal menu of British and Mediterranean classics. Tall windows dressed with plush drapes survey the Manor’s pretty grounds, with the refined 1559 restaurant partnered by a bar serving wines and cocktails on the terrace.

Part of the Marriott Hotel at Sprowston Manor, 1559 serves spicy chicken, lamb burgers and traditional rib-eye and sirloin steaks from its sizzling grill. Tomato and chilli gnocchi, and taglioni with spinach and salami, add an Italian touch to the 1559 restaurant menu.

Smoked duck with pomegranate, crab cakes and king scallops are among typical starters at 1559. Braised beef shin in Guinness, and rump of lamb with Tuscan vegetables make hearty mains, followed by irresistible warm treacle tart, sticky toffee pudding and profiteroles.

Celebrating regular events including game season and the Oyster Festival, 1559 at Sprowston Manor in Norwich offers the finest seasonal dining. Norwich Train Station is a 12-minute drive from the restaurant.

    It was the best afternoon tea I've had. Loads of sandwiches, loads of tea, cakes, scones. Really really nice. The setting/room was lovely too.I would highly recommend it.

    We booked for afternoon tea, although we had booked in advance and were alittle early we still had to wait a fair while for our table to be set up and the tea took some time to be brought to our table.

    We went early on a Sunday evening with only four other couples there at the time. Service was polite and very attentive without being obtrusive. The restaurant was peaceful, but probably not that noisy if there were more guests. The food was delicious and the cheese board option of three different cheeses would have been enough for two. We were very satisfied with 1559.

    Venue, service, food and presentation absolutely excellent.

    Very large restaurant with large bar area adjacent, but not many people there, so atmosphere a little lacking. Although it was clean and smart it felt somewhat on the cold side (both physically and atmosphere). I would be happy to eat there again if I were staying in the hotel, but would not make a special trip.

    Very nice place to visit, however the afternoon tea was not so great. The sandwiches were very dry and crusty as if they were made a few hours before and left sat on the side which was a big disappointment, its advertised with 'assortment of pastries' however we did not have any.. also the 'chocolate mousse' was inedible, was rock hard, had been sat in the fridge for far too long! Also unsure about the service charge as I didn't find the staff overly friendly or polite, I have never eaten somewhere where the waiters hardly speak to you like they did here.
