British, Modern Restaurants in Norwich
1. Benedicts British, Modern restaurant in Norwich 9 St Benedicts St - NR2
Entering its eighth year, Richard & Katja Bainbridge’s “relaxing” operation remains the most commented-on option in town in our annual diners’ poll and also the highest rated. Fans say it’s their “go-to” option, thanks to its “incredible” menus (“catering to all tastes”) and staff who are “attentive without being overly ever present”. However, ratings were dragged down by a few “disappointing” reports of the “might-have-been-a-bad-day-but…” variety.
2. Brasteds British, Modern restaurant in Framingham Pigot Manor Farm Barns - NR14
Brasted’s Award Winning Restaurant is located in the picturesque privately owned village of Framingham Pigot. With its warm, inviting décor and friendly staff it’s the perfect choice for any special occasion or celebration. Our A La Carte Menu changes on a seas...
3. Stoke Mill British, Modern restaurant in Stoke Holy Cross Mill Road - NR14
“A bit quirky, but it has a lot class as well” – this scenic, 700-year-old mill on the River Tas was once home to the business that became Colman’s Mustard, and since 2013 under Ludo and Andy Rudd has been restored to be a restaurant of some ambition. There is an à la carte menu, or go the whole hog and have the 7-course tasting menu for £75. Top Menu Tip – “the best Sunday lunch for miles”.
4. Farmyard Restaurant British, Modern restaurant in Norwich 23 Saint Benedicts Street - NR2
This “vibrant” operation from chef-patron Andrew Jones, who worked for Richard Corrigan and Claude Bosi before returning to his native Norfolk, majors on “interesting, well-executed dishes” using “locally sourced ingredients”. He and his partner, Hannah, also run The Dial House restaurant-with-rooms in Reepham.
5. Roger Hickman’s British, Modern restaurant in Norwich 79 Upper St. Giles St - NR2
“A long-term destination in the culinary wastelands of Norfolk, but so good it is worth a trip”, say fans of Roger Hickman’s “lovely” culinary beacon (which dates from 1990 under former owner David Adlard). Reports often compare it favourably with nearby Benedicts, although the latter outscored it by a whisker again this year. Whatever the ranking, all reports rate it well, lauding “superbly executed food, with touches of inventiveness which all hit the spot”. Such gripes as featured in feedback are that it’s pricey or “a bit OTT” in its approach.
6. The Wildebeest Arms British, Modern restaurant in Stoke Holy Cross 82-86 Norwich Rd - NR14
“Excellent food, beautifully prepared and presented from local produce”, ticks the boxes at this village pub-restaurant just outside Norwich, which serves a modern British menu from Norfolk-born chef Daniel Smith (ex-Le Gavroche and Morston Hall), who also runs the Ingham Swan (his third venture, Warwick Street Social in Norwich, closed during the pandemic). The Wildebeest’s name is a relic of its previous life as an African-themed gastropub. Top Tip – “the fixed-price lunch is a real bargain”.
