The Norfolk Riddle


Our restaurant, The Norfolk Riddle, is just a stone’s throw down the hill from our Walsingham Farms Shop, serving delicious locally sourced food. Alongside The Norfolk Riddle we offer a great takeaway fish & chip counter. 

Our talented Head Chef, SAM BAGGE believes strongly in local food and he brings his experience from roles in Australia, America, London and Norfolk!

Our menu is closely linked with the food that we serve at our Farm Shop and features great homemade pies made in our shop kitchen.

Our food and drink philosophy 

Local, fresh and seasonal, we look for ingredients straight from the producer wherever possible. Fresh local meat from our butchery includes game from Walsingham Estate Shoot as a speciality, with venison, pheasant and partridge in season, rabbit and pigeon as available.

Fish for the fish & chip counter is sustainably sourced and we can get mussels or crab straight from the fishermen.

Youll find a great choice of local Norfolk ales, cider from nearby Wells-next-the-Sea and a very reasonably priced wine list.

Why the Norfolk Riddle?

We named the restaurant 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. We use the finest varieties, grown locally. Some vintage riddles, looking like giant sieves, hang in the restaurant.
