From a delicate afternoon tea to a roast with all the trimmings, step back in time and dine in the secret garden of a cafe and restaurant.
The Britons Arms is perched atop Elm Hill in Norwich and was taken over by chef Richard Ellis in late 2021.
It was previously run by sisters Gilly Mixer and Sue Skipper who had been at the helm for over 40 years but have decided to retire.
Mr. Ellis kept his winning formula, but also put his own stamp on the 14th-century restaurant, offering everything from fish finger sandwiches to stew and dumplings.
A three-tier afternoon tea is also available from midday, with sandwiches, scones and cakes, including shortbread topped with Norfolk strawberries.
On Sundays from 12 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., you can enjoy a roast with a choice of two meats or a vegetarian option served with all the trimmings.
Guests can also choose to eat and drink in the beautiful Secret Garden.
Mr Ellis said: ‘It’s an amazing little place and there are lots of wisteria and herbs which give it the smell of a vegetable patch – you really feel like you’re in the middle of medieval Norwich.’
The Britons Arms is open 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Thursday, 9am to 9pm Friday, 9am to 5.30pm Saturday and 9am to 3.30pm Sunday.
