Norwich Nosh

Just a few recommendations for food in Norwich based on our experiences this holiday...

Coffee is excellent in HOUSE in St Benedicts and their toast and peanut butter is fab! There are sofas, and newspapers, and it is a lovely place to relax. Like GG below, House is also 'child-friendly' [some time, I shall take Rosie]

Wednesday's Lunch was brilliant at Gibraltar Gardens, which is the pub next to Machine Mart on Heigham Street.  
Salad and coleslaw both freshly made and delicious, Bob's chilli jacket potato was particularly good.  Service was faultless and prices very reasonable [all the mains under £10].  GG has new management, and builders are still working on the other half of the pub,  but it didn't affect our 'eating experience' at all.
My other treat this week was ice cream from the Lakenham Creamery - Liz and Jon discovered this treasure, tucked away in Trafalgar Street, where they sell the most delicious ices. 
They've been in business for 95 years - and for many years have supplied Harrods.There's a huge range of flavours - look at this amazing list -
French Vanilla,  Double Strawberry,  Belgian Chocolate,  Vanilla and Pecan Crunch ,  Mascarpone and Fig, Mandarin & Cointreau, New York Coffee, Chocolate Choc Chip, Crema Pistachio, Almond Toffee Crunch, Jamaican Rum and Raisin, Rich Butterscotch, Coconut and Cream, Mint Choc Chip, Mango Alphonse, Chocolate Orange, Passion Fruit, Vanilla and Black Cherry, Raspberries and Cream, Fruits of the Forest, Stem Ginger, Blueberries and Cream, Blackcurrant & Apple, Salted Caramel, Christmas Pudding, Cinnamon, Zabaglione, Apricot and Brandy
I had Crema Pistachio [and a taste of Liz's Mango Alphonse] - the company also produces a range of ices suitable for diabetics. 
These are not the only good eateries in Norwich - but these three are ones I would happily recommend.


  1. How did you choose which ice cream to have? I would have been sat there for hours trying to decide!

    1. It was easy- I sat outside in the car with Rosie and Liz went inside to buy. She came back with just two tubs so the decision was not so hard. We did sample each other's flavour though. Both very pleasant. And I hope to try more at a later date...
