The Norfolk Riddle Restaurant offers classic, locally-sourced British cuisine featuring meat from the farm butchery and game from the Walsingham Estate Shoot. Served fresh from the counter, the restaurant’s fish and chips are a local favourite.

Serving up British dishes with a French twist, The Norfolk Riddle menu features culinary delights such as roasted Gressingham duck breast with honeyed turnips and Chinese five spices, and succulent ox cheek and vegetables pot-au-feu with horseradish. The restaurant’s name comes from the riddles used to sort potatoes, a key Norfolk crop.

Local, fresh, and seasonal ingredients are paramount at The Norfolk Riddle, a philosophy that extends to the restaurant’s drinks, too. Diners can enjoy a superb choice of wine, local Norfolk ales and cider from nearby Wells-next-the-Sea.

Set in the gorgeous Norfolk countryside, The Norfolk Riddle Restaurant is just a 13-minute drive from nearby Fakenham.

    Generally speaking,dishes here are extremely good value for money.For me the exceptions have been the small portions of fish i.e.:hake & monkfish,but I realise that they are more expensive......
    It would be nice to have my vodka & tonic served in a nice glass rather than a water tumbler( a small thing but it makes a difference)

    Apart from these criticisms,waiting staff are efficient, welcoming & friendly.Menu is good & with the addition of a specials board even better.We enjoy coming here.

    There were four of us in the party and we ate a few of the dishes offered. We weren't disappointed with anything we ate, everything was beautifully presented and exceptionally tasty. A couple of us had the steak which was excellent. The service was efficient and unobtrusive, very friendly and there was no rushing around.
    We would most certainly make a return visit.

    Prompt email booking response......pleasant, friendly ambiance and very good service. Food was very good both in quality and price.
    Musak was too loud and people moved table because of the speaker.
    Otherwise a very pleasant evening
