A great attraction in Norfolk is the high number of good quality restaurants. Outsiders often assume that they are all clustered in the county capital of Norwich or attached to one of the Norfolk Hotels.It is true that Norwich has some excellent restaurant and in addition, there's a good chance that many of the Norfolk Luxury Hotels you look to stay in will have a good restaurant as well as top quality accommodation.But when it comes to a great food experience in Norfolk, don't be afraid to venture out into the countryside or up to the coast. Several of the lovely Norfolk towns and villages have restaurants with a well-known local chef in the kitchen producing delicious food with an attractive and innovative menu.In addition, the coastal resorts of the quayside communities also have great places to eat. If you are staying in any of the hotels North Norfolk has, don't be afraid to ask for a recommendation of where to eat. You may get a varied answer though, as everyone has their favourite. It also depends on what you are looking for: whether it is wholesome local cuisine; fine dining; or seafood.The seafood is often caught within a short distance of the restaurant, particularly if you opt for crab or lobster, or try the shellfish, and it's not just the restaurants that have great menus.Many of the pubs across Norfolk have gained a reputation in recent years for good quality food as they seek to diversify and survive in a highly-competitive market. You are also likely to find a great selection of beers behind the bar with a number of the ales brewed locally by microbreweries which are enjoying something of a renaissance in the UK at the moment with a great selection in Norfolk, producing distinctive beers to suit every taste.If you're uncertain of where to eat or drink, staff at most of the North Norfolk hotels will be more than happy to offer a few pointers in the right direction. But don't be afraid to go off exploring on your own and drop in at a pub, caf or restaurant that attracts your attention, you won't be disappointed.
