    Really nice interior, good atmosphere (even when the restaurant was quite empty). Good serving personnel. Nice wines with wine pairing. The outstanding dish was probably the rhubarb custard refresher.

    Hi I have been meaning to come to the Wildebeest for some time to sample Daniels food since the Swan at Ingham closed due to fire. I'm so glad I did. We had the Norfolk tasting menu and every dish was amazing. Food was hot and we'll presented and the flavours sublime.The atmosphere in the restaurant was nice not too noisy or quiet and tables nicely spaced. The service from all staff was excellent. Looking forward to when the Swan at Ingham reopens in March but will definitely be returning to the Wildebeest.

    Excellent as always! Best duck I’ve ever had, taste, ingredients amazing, the rhubarb complimented the duck very well, the pastry chef’s panacotta was to die for! Thankyou Daniel & team! Michelin star!

    We had a problem with two of the four of us turning up a bit late because of a traffic incident and the staff were very patient. Service was friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. The pear parfait with poached pears was delicious.

    Excellent service from start to finish. The food was lovely-particulaly the roast beef and the vanilla panacotta. Lovely presentation and flavours. The restaurant was set out in such a way that it was friendly yet quiet.

    We had a 7 course a large carte taster menu. All four of us 'foodies absolutely loved it! The staff were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Two favourite dishes, stonebass and the shuffle with salted caramel and dehydrated blackberries. Yummy.
