Welcome to the Cliff Hotel in Gorleston-On Sea, a hotel and restaurant with unrivalled views of the Norfolk and Suffolk coast.

The Cliff Hotel dates back to 1890 when the original hotel was opened, in 1915 the building was ravaged by fire and demolished. The old staff accommodation was renovated into a new hotel, the building that we currently occupy today.

We have a vast selection of dining options from our relaxed art-deco inspired MUSE restaurant, our vibrant bar dining area or one of the biggest outside dining terraces in Norfolk.

Wherever you decide to eat our menus will give you a huge variety of choice from fresh fish to steaks and grills. Alternatively we have lighter snacks and a range of classic dishes to delight all tastes.

Why not join us for a traditional Sunday roast or a quintessentially British afternoon tea?

Our food is prepared in our kitchens to ensure the best quality and taste reaches your table.

We look forward to welcoming you.

    My friend and I had a wonderful visit for brunch on Saturday. The staff were really nice and friendly. You could see they were all working hard. The food (breakfasts and tea) was really yummy. And the view from the terrace topped it all off. We will definitely come again. It’s such a nice venue. Thank you.

    The service was great, Dio our waiter was brilliant. The tables are a bit small for five adults to sit around. My food was lovely. My brother is vegan and his burger was very basic for the money. It didn’t come with a side salad or coleslaw and it would have made a lot of difference. Overall I would go again.

    Birthday celebration first visit on the terrace heaters not working but blankets provided. Excellent attentive service from waiter called Dio. Had shared starter of salt and pepper squid which was tasty but would benefit from a slice of lime to season. We had 2 briskets and a pulled pork with fries and salad. Good size portions all very tasty. One dessert of rhubarb brûlée slightly curdled but still a delight. Theee glasses of wine (good selection) and Diet Coke plus a coffee. Circa £35 per head. Nice view of Gorleston beach. Disabled parking an issue getting out as not enough space between bay and cars at rear. Very pleasant will return

    Really had a great time on Wednesday with my girl. The team at the Cliff hotel really helped set up a romantic atmosphere at the table and I really appreciate that. Overall we had an amazing evening and the food was top notch while the staff were very nice and friendly. I’d definitely be visiting again.

    The ambience and waiting staff were excellent. Unfortunately, I felt the menu wasn't in keeping with such a lovely venue. There was nothing particularly exciting to tickle the tastebuds.

    Thank you for your review, we update our 'Specials Menu' weekly so if there wasn't something that tickled your taste buds this time, hopefully we can next time! Thank you
