Roger Hickman’s convivial restaurant is tucked away near the cathedral in the Upper St Giles area. Relaxed and stylish with contemporary artwork and well appointed tables, it’s a laidback and discreet setting for the highly skilled modern British seasonal cooking. Whether ordering from the fixed-price or tasting menu, you might begin with blow-torched salmon fillet, textures of beetroot, popcorn, apple and lemon before moving onto pork belly, carrot purée, dauphinoise potatoes, glazed Chantenay carrots and cider jus. A classic lemon tart and raspberry sorbet is one way to round things off. The notable wine list has won awards.

About the area

Discover Norfolk

The North Norfolk Coast is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and probably the finest of its kind in Europe. Here you’ll find a string of quaint villages and small towns – Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Cley next the Sea are 21st-century favourites, while Sheringham and Cromer are classic examples of a good old-fashioned seaside resort where grand Victorian hotels look out to sea. Further round the coast you'll find Great Yarmouth, one of the most popular resorts in the UK and packed full of amusements, shops and seashore entertainment. And let's not forget Norwich, the region's only city.

Norfolk prides itself on its wealth of historic houses, the most famous being Sandringham, where Her Majesty the Queen and her family spend Christmas. Many of Norfolk’s towns have a particular charm and a strong sense of community. The quiet market towns of Fakenham and Swaffham are prime examples, as well as Thetford, with its popular museum focusing on the TV comedy series Dad’s Army which was filmed in the area.
