Foodie klaxon – Norfolk’s new Michelin restaurant!
Huge congrats are in order to Holt restaurant Meadowsweet, which has just bagged a Michelin star. Even more amazing? They've only been in business for nine months!
Meadowsweet, launched in May 2021 by former Morston Hall head chef Greg Anderson and his partner Rebecca, was praised by the Michelin judges for its “meticulously prepared tasting menu of great local produce.”
Sounds oh so delicious! We also love the look of the stylish, minimalist decor. But do let us know if you manage to get a booking – the waiting list was already up to four months long, and you can bet that’s going to get longer now.
Meadowsweet, which also has boutique rooms if you want to make a minibreak out of it, is housed in a beautiful Georgian house (which used to be another local fave Yetmans, several years ago, as some of you might remember).
Greg and Rebecca wrote on Insta: “Feeling overwhelmed, fortunate, grateful, proud, humbled and excited. Our small team are truly incredible and we are so happy to share this with them. Suppliers, Friends, Family we love you all. It’s a special day for us.” Hooray!
And in other fab local foodie news…
Not content with being named The Sunday Times Best Hotel in the East of England, those lovely folk at Sculthorpe Mill have also now nabbed an ultra-prestigious Bib Gourmand in the new Michelin guide!
In fact, the Mill is one of only two pubs in England to have received a new BG this year (the other winner was The Hollist Arms in West Sussex).
The pretty waterside inn, which has undergone an amazing evolution under the ownership of sisters Siobhan and Caitriona Peyton, now joins Muddy Norfolk faves The Gunton Arms and The Wiveton Bell in the Bib Gourmand crew. Prepare to hit refresh on their booking page, too…
