Local restaurants and bargains? Well, consider our interest piqued. For the first time, North Norfolk Restaurant Week has expanded to cover the county (and drop the North from the name!) and oh boy are we excited.
Although the participating restaurants are scattered across the county, there’s a good selection in Norwich, many for lunch as well as dinner.

What can I say? The list of places to try in Norwich got too long – it spiralled out beyond just the old favourites, and the cafes and restaurants that have popped up over the last few years. This fine city has gone through a massive amount of change in recent years, having gained a plethora of coffee shops, posher restaurants, and, praise be to the food gods, ice cream shops. Norwich has so much to offer, a map was the only way forward. And so followed NorEats.
NorEats brings together the food and drink the fine city of Norwich has to offer, from coffee shops to gin joints, cafes to swanky restaurants.
