Restaurant Week comes to Norwich

A record-breaking 85 restaurants across Norfolk have signed up for 2018’s Norfolk (and Norwich) Restaurant Week, and you can now find out exactly what to graze on during the event, as all the menus have been released for you to peruse and digest. 


It was founded in 2013, with just 11 participating restaurants, but has grown exponentially. Last year, for example, 30,000 diners took part across 62 locations.

Now in its sixth year, the ‘largest dining event in the county’ will take place from October 29 for two weeks (excluding weekends) showcasing the wide variety of talent and choice across Norfolk’s restaurants, cafes and pubs.
