Norfolk Restaurant Week 2018

Wloved NRW2017, since it gave us an excuse to eat out without breaking the bank – and this year’s, taking place from October 29 to November 9, looks set to be even bigger and better, with more than 80 restaurants across the county taking part. For 2018, there’s a mix of old favourites, newer faces, and some experienced NRW-ers. There are undeniably bargains to be had, with the price of three courses hitting a maximum of £23. Here’s where to go in Norwich. Read More

North, Fye Bridge St

Vegetarian mezze at North, Fye Bridge St // NorEats

North, the sister cafe to Bedford St’s Frank’s Bar, has retained all of the charm of that smaller venue and sits perched next to one of Norwich’s post picturesque spots at Fye Bridge, offering a wide range of food for just about everyone. Read More

Lemon cake at Mitre, Earlham Rd, NorEats

The Waffle House, St Giles

The Waffle House, St Giles

This year marks an important milestone for The Waffle House: at home in a small, unassuming space on St Giles, it’s been serving waffles for birthdays, dates, anniversaries, and just-because treats for 40 years.

Aroma, Upper King St

Tucked into a little listed building on King St, Aroma could be easy to miss, but you’d be a fool to walk past. Before you even get to the food and drink, you’ll be greeted by some of the friendliest cafe staff in the city, and then by an extensive array of food and drinks to choose from. Keeping it a local affair, Aroma uses coffee from Smokey Barn, which is based further down King St. And when the sun goes down – or, you know, any time before that, we’re not judging – the cafe/bar offers a range of cocktails, some evergreen, like the the espresso martini, and some seasonal, such as the Fireball chai.

Norfolk Restaurant Week 2017

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. On offer between October 30 and November 10, the premise is simple, with set menus of up to three courses costing no more than £20. So where can we find such treats?
