It’s back! Find out more about this year’s Norfolk Restaurant Week.
Norfolk Restaurant Week, sponsored by Big Skies Holiday Cottages in Holt, is back after a two-year break, giving the county’s foodies a chance to try out new places and revisit old favourites as almost 50 restaurants have so far signed up to take part.
Founder Martin Billing, a North Norfolk based entrepreneur, explains that the week, that runs from 31 October to 11 November, sees restaurants offer great value, set priced meals in a traditionally quieter time of the culinary calendar.
“We are building the week back up after a two-year break – and it is really due to customer demand, from both the restaurants and from diners who are locals and holidaymakers.
“It is something people really look forward to, and we know they book holidays around the week, too. It’s a chance for people to get together, enjoy each other’s company and some great food.”
The restaurants taking part offer either two courses for £16 and three courses for £20, or two courses for £23 and three courses for £29. Evening meals are always included, and lunches are optional. Weekends are fully excluded.
A wide cross section of restaurants from all around the county have already signed up, including The White Horse at Brancaster Staithe, The Victoria at Holkham, The Pigs at Edgefield near Holt, and Farmyard in Norwich. New places joining for the first time this year include The White Swan at Gressenhall, The Chequers at Hainford, The Kings Head at New Buckenham, The Wildflower at Terrington St Clements, The Angel at Watlington, and Seafood by Adrian Noble which is opening this autumn in King’s Lynn. It is expected that more will follow.
Simon Turner of The Boars at Spooner Row near Wymondham is taking part for the third time and is a big fan. “We find that people love to try somewhere new, and this week is the perfect opportunity for them to do so. We have a new pub this year, The Kings Head at New Buckenham, and we are looking forward to welcoming people here, too.”
Hetti Simpson of Big Skies Estates adds: “We are delighted to be the headline sponsors of the return of Norfolk Restaurant Week in 2022. Restaurant Week is one of the most exciting events in the Norfolk calendar and the whole team at Big Skies will be using it as a fantastic excuse to eat out at some of our favourite North Norfolk eateries and to discover new ones in Norwich and elsewhere in our beautiful county.”
Diners are advised to book ahead to avoid disappointment once menus are released in mid-September.
