If it weren't for the legs of ibérico ham hanging in the window, you might think the Norfolk Arms was ‘just another after-work boozer', notes a fan of this jam-packed Bloomsbury bolthole with its tiled facade, plastered ceilings and prim window boxes. Spanish influences hold sway in the kitchen, with a lengthy tapas menu delivering generous, full-flavoured plates of serrano ham and manchego, chorizo in cider, salt-cod croquetas and more – alongside a few Greek and Middle Eastern cameos from the likes of feta-stuffed chilli peppers or spicy soutzouki sausages. The more conventional three-course menu is equally international in outlook – witness king-prawn ceviche with guacamole, or marinated lamb and apricot skewers with tabbouleh. Unremarkable draught beers are outshone by an authoritative selection of sherry and port on the globetrotting wine list.
