A world of summer eating inspiration awaits at Goodies Food Hall just off the A140 in South Norfolk. Whether you’re dining from their superb summer restaurant menu, or in their lovely sunny restaurant garden, or picking up ingredients for your own summer dining at home, make sure that Goodies is on your summer bucket list.
For BBQs that are a cut above, head straight to Goodies Butchery Counter in their Food Hall. Here you’ll not only find the famous Goodies-own range of sensational burgers and sausages in a fabulous variety of flavours, all made by the team on site, but also a plethora of superb quality steaks, chicken, ribs, kebabs, chops and so much more – all expertly prepared by the Goodies Butchers.
Summer Saturday mornings are BBQ central at Goodies Food Hall says owner Stuart Gooderham, with baskets piled high not just with Goodies wonderful meat but also with sauces, salads and sides, and even delicious desserts, many of which are prepared by Goodies team and all of which can be picked up in the Food Hall. At Goodies, you can find everything you need for the perfect summer BBQ – right down to the charcoal. It’s your one-stop BBQ shop and often the first port of call for holidaymakers, en route to their accommodation, who call in to pick up supplies of local quality produce on the way.
Whatever the forecast, seasoned BBQers want to serve up great quality, delicious BBQ goodies. Quality and flavour count – even in these challenging times, when customers are choosing products they know will cook well, taste great and get eaten enthusiastically. And this is exactly what Goodies serves up.
But Goodies Food Hall is so much more than just a Butchery. As the name suggests, you’ll find a wealth of ingredients and products of every type, including a wonderful selection of prepared salads, quiches, pies, and pastries to enjoy at home – all made in-house. Their deli counter is a must-visit for anyone preparing a picnic with a mouth-watering array of items, including the very best local and UK cheeses and a superb selection of local beers. Don’t forget to pick up dessert too. You’ll find freezers full of Goodies made desserts, including cheesecakes and roulades, and a fabulous new patisserie cabinet with its eye-catching array of fresh cream cakes and fancies, all handmade by Goodies Bakers.
In Goodies Restaurant, the new Summer Menus are going down a storm and customers arrive at the entrance excitedly scanning the Chef’s Daily Specials board, including breakfast specials, adding even more variety to their choice and all of which celebrate the very best of local seasonal produce. They get snapped up quickly!
With a fully established restaurant team now in place, under the leadership of Head Chef Martin Jarrett, the extended, stylish, and spacious restaurant is going from strength to strength. And though it’s a far cry from the farmhouse style kitchen selling sausage rolls and cakes where it started, Goodies Food Hall and Restaurant is helping to put South Norfolk on the map as a quality dining destination. Special evening dining events have been very popular, and more are planned. Recently launched, afternoon sharing platters, served from 2-4pm, are the perfect way to make the most of the restaurant’s lovely sunny garden with its South Norfolk views, which really comes into its own in the summer months. Why not enjoy with a chilled glass of white wine, a cold beer, a glass of Pimms – or even a cheeky cocktail!
