WHY?

Wymondham (pronounced “WIND-um”) has great road and rail links for those wanting to commute to Norwich or London. Plus it’s home to four Muddy Award winners – best pub, florist, women’s boutique and wine shop – I’ll say no more!

EAT

14th-century Muddy Award-winning pub The Green Dragon is top of the list for pub grub, followed by 2019 best pub nominee The Queens Head. Experience dine at Station Bistro, spice things up at Sathudee Thai or head to Pasta Gusto for some delicious mama Italia cuisine. Cakes and pastries in a cutesy country setting? The Egg Shed & Hen House is our Muddy recommend.

SHOP

There’s a couple more Muddy Award-winners (must be something in the water) – Little Boutique for fashion, accessories and homely objects and Ragged Robin Florists for floral designs. Get your top-notch vino at Reno Wines and high-end home furnishings at Jarrold. Finally, don’t miss the opportunity to pop into community book shop, Ketts Books.
