Norfolk Is A Foodie Heaven


There are so many great things about Norfolk and one them is the food!

When you're living and working in Norfolk there's no excuse not to eat well, there's too much choice.
Even here in the abbotFox office lunchtime is never dull; it was Ian Forrest who made sure of that. Ian thought lunch should be different every day, to get a real taste of what Norwich food has to offer and that's when he coined the phrase the abbotFox urban lunch. Pop into abbotFox at lunchtime, and there is a variety of dishes being nibbled on, Texan patties, tapas, sushi and meat boxes!

Why is Norfolk a Foodie Heaven?

Norfolk's soils are suited to supporting world-class asparagus and blueberries, Cromer is famous for crab, Brancaster has the best mussels, Norfolk turkey and gorgeous game, foraged foods are popular, and our farms deliver the best vegetables. But that's not all, Norfolk has award-winning cheese, chocolate, rare breed pork, prized malting barley, the list goes on.

You can't live in Norfolk and not get tempted to dine out in some of the best restaurants; some of the Norfolk chefs often pop up on cookery TV shows.
