I'm inspired to blog about my most recent findings when it comes to eating out in Norwich. It's most certainly no secret that I'm very much enjoying dating again, with my dark haired and stunning bearded man friend, we've been enjoying many fun days and nights out in Norwich City. You can even travel to Norwich from Cambridge on the Megabus from just £1 - read this review for more info - I do this myself sometimes even now, it's very handy indeed! Many people are now asking me where's good to eat and drink in the beautiful City of Norwich and so here's my personal guide to our most favourite and recent Norfolk haunts. If you find yourself in Norwich with nowhere to eat, here's hoping that this guide helps you to find somewhere a little more independent or unique than the usual places you might end up settling for. I'm even sharing some of my favourite music discovered in Norwich, as well as events and shops too, I'll share as much as I find and enjoy in the hope that it will be helpful for some of my readers. In fact, here's a little video I've created for you too, enjoy: [youtube height="HEIGHT" width="WIDTH"]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzNKHGyrITw[/youtube] Cakes, Coffee & Sweet Treats: Pye Baker of Norwich - perfect for fresh bread & luxurious cakes (REVIEW) Macarons & More - not just for macarons, their bars & cakes are stunning Biddy's - great selection of tea & a homemade, vintage afternoon tea The Assembly House - luxurious afternoon tea & dining venue The Mill Cafe - a once-monthly community village cafe (REVIEW) Cafe Britannia - a cafe open to the public, within the local prison!
