Roger Hickman earned his culinary stripes at this address when it was home to local legend Adlard’s, and is now firmly entrenched as king of the hill in Norwich – with his own name above the door. This immensely likeable restaurant is a “real treat to visit” – a paragon of relaxed civility with comfortingly familiar decor and an air of low-key elegance in the two interconnecting dining rooms. Sharply defined seasonal flavours are the key to starters such as blowtorched mackerel with baby beetroot and horseradish or a rainbow carrot salad with yoghurt and dukkah crumb, while mains put the focus on thoughtfully sourced ingredients – from loin of Norfolk lamb with sweetbreads, aubergine caviar, red peppers and potato terrine to roast Ibérico pork shoulder and belly accompanied by braised red onion and sweetcorn. Desserts often give classic themes a contemporary spin – as in lemon meringue pie with apple, almond and Calvados or poached pear with hazelnut, milk sorbet and milk chocolate. Service is courteous, set menus are terrific value and the wine list comprises a fine collection of carefully chosen bottles.
