The Norfolk Riddle

Why The Norfolk Riddle?

The restaurant is named after the riddles used to sort potatoes, a key crop here in Norfolk, and part of the answer to the riddle of sustaining farming in the 21st century. Vintage riddles, looking like giant sieves, hang in the restaurant.  

Food & Drink Philosophy

Local, fresh and seasonal, with ingredients straight from the producer if possible. Including fresh local meat, game in season, sustainably sourced fish, mussels from the coast, vegetables and fruit from local growers.

Drinks include Norfolk ales, cider from nearby Wells-next-the-Sea and a very reasonably priced wine list
