Norfolk Restaurant Week 2018

Written by Georgia Dawson on

Norfolk Restaurant Week 2018

Celebrating its sixth birthday, the fabulous Norfolk Restaurant Week is gracing the county between 29th October – 9th November (excluding weekends). Norfolk Restaurant Week is Norfolk’s largest dining event and is a celebration of the county’s ever-growing restaurant scene, delicious food, and the people who produce it. Throughout the two weeks, every restaurant taking part will be offering their mouth-watering dishes at a wonderfully tempting price, giving you the opportunity to try restaurants you’ve perhaps never been to or re-visit old favourites. 

This year, an incredible 84 restaurants will be taking part, a higher number than ever before. These restaurants will be offering two courses for £12 or three for £17 at lunch time, or two courses for £18 and three for £23 in the evenings – prices not to be missed!
