This is one of the last monthly meals before it moves to Norwich. They have regular themed nights. in a very old building . the tables are moved together so couples who may not know each other sit together. It tends to be older couples who go. the people we met were very interesting. The food was very well prepared... More

Well what a massive disappointment this was! Came for what was meant to be a fine meal for two but apart from an expected high standard of service, everything else was horrible! We were promptly shown to our table on arrival as the lounge was full. Unlike any other good restaurant in Norfolk, the bread basket was already on the... More

First impressions were mixed, a warm welcome in the car park from Richard Hughes himself; however the building and room for the demonstration was dark and cramped; a couple of wind glasses were smashed as there was nowhere to park them whilst watching the demonstration. However once Richard got under way, everything else was forgotten and we understood why we... More

The chef's table at the Lavender House is perfect for a special occasion. There were 7 of us which was ideal for the table giving our guest of honour the best view of the kitchen. We were greeted with a glass of champagne and lovely canapés. We then embarked on the 9 course tasting menu. I think Richard has got... More

Everybody I've spoken to about coming to this restaurant has had nothing but good to say - and so it was time to try it out. As a special treat for our 20th anniversary we booked for a Thursday evening; the front of house/waiter was extremely welcoming and friendly and we had a very relaxed start to the evening. We...
