The Norfolk Riddle Restaurant situated in the historic village of Little Walsingham, prides itself on serving the finest quality local ingredients cooked with passion and flair by local chef and owner Neil Rutland.
The restaurant has been refurbished to create a relaxed dining space welcoming to all guests, young or old locals, or visitors alike, all of whom should find something to tantalize their taste buds.
Dishes range from quality fish and chips from the next door fish and chip shop to the finest locally sourced game from the local game keeper (when available) or mussels from local beds when in season.
Don’t feel left out if you’re a vegetarian or require gluten free options either as there will always be many dishes for you to choose from. Children are well catered for with their own menu, dogs are also welcome into certain parts of the restaurant so they don’t feel left out either.
There is also a selection of locally brewed ales as well as a good range of very reasonably priced wines to choose from.

Tucked away in Newman’s Yard off Norwich Street, this is one of Fakenham’s hidden gems. The building is adorned by an enormous Wisteria tree, possibly the oldest in East Anglia, which provides a glorious backdrop for the outside seating.
