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.

    Very helpful staff due to allergies. Attentive and polite. Lovely fresh sandwiches and more than enough to fill you up. The scones are amazing.

    We had afternoon tea in January for my daughter's birthday. The dining area was delightful which also looked out onto lovely scenery of the surrounding garden. When we arrived we were shown to our table which was set up very nicely with china plates, tea cups and silver tongs for the sugar cubes. We were served up with our teapot with a variety of mouth-watering sandwiches and a selection of handmade delicious cakes. We enjoyed it so much that we came again in March for my other daughter's birthday. A very nice relaxed atmosphere.

    Great service,a wonderful selection of sandwiches,chicken and stuffing and cheese and chutney amongst the best. A full pot of tea each was a lovely touch and the whole experience was very relaxed and not rushed,would definitely book again.
