Muddy says: I love a bit of Bistronomy plus I’m easily enticed by a pink neon sign. Casual dining with top quality nosh in a laid back, stylish restaurant – well hello Farmyard you certainly grabbed my attention!
Owner and Chef Andrew Jones has had 12 years experience working in busy London restaurants under Michelin starred chefs. Now he’s mixed this with a great big helping of tasty Norfolk produce and served up a refreshingly open and contemporary dining space bursting with great flavoured food.
The stylish yet subtle decor combined with great service and an open kitchen gives the restaurant a lovely warm family dining vibe. It can get quite buzzy when busy but this simply adds to the fun, informal atmosphere.
You’ll find some wonderfully creative dishes on the menu such as Roast hogget with hay baked turnip and anchovy yoghurt or Collar of pork with burnt apple and confit cabbage. Carb warning – the triple cooked chips are sublime and the freshly baked sourdough and homemade butter is not to be missed!!
Mains range between £13 and £18 plus sides and they offer a great fixed price lunch and pre-theatre menu too!
Community is at the heart of the Farmyard’s philosophy and it’s worth signing up to their newsletter to get the heads-up on special events showcasing local food and drink producers. It’s also great to see that they run a quarterly dementia friendly lunch service.
If you’re looking for a relaxed modern dining environment with great quality food on possibly the best street in Norwich, the Farmyard will not disappoint.
