Anna and James come from a catering background and first met when they were both working for McLaren on the Formula 1 circuit ten years ago, travelling the World and catering for the culinary needs of the McLaren drivers, mechanics and support team. They have always dreamed of owning their own hotel and venue and the Norfolk Mead is the realisation of that dream. Their expertise is catering for private and corporate business and they have built up an enviable reputation with clients around the UK and overseas. Anna Duttson Events continues to run successfully from Norfolk, catering for private and corporate events all over UK and Europe.

At the heart of the Norfolk Mead is our walled garden, with lush lawns, rose bushes and a large sheltered terrace to ensure you can enjoy Afternoon Tea or pre-dinner drinks in a group or in private to suit your mood. The walled garden is lovingly tended by our groundsman to keep the flowerbeds in bloom throughout the spring and summer - we hope you enjoy spending time there as much as we do.
We welcome pets at the Norfolk Mead Hotel but unfortunately we can only accommodate them in some of our rooms - Juniper, Crab Apple & Sweet Chestnut.
Pets are charged at £20 per night and we do operate a well-behaved pet policy - which essentially means that any damages caused by pets must be paid before you check-out.
Please be aware that if your pet is particularly noisy, you may be asked to vacate the room so the experience of other guests is not unduly affected.
