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 Head Chef and Manager, Hervé Stouvenel takes a real pride in his changing menu based on what is seasonal and best at the time. He brings a winning combination of being able to do classic English cooking with a French technique and enthusiasm for great food.

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. Hervé changes his menus almost daily as he responds to locally available produce.

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.
