Norfolk Restaurant Week is a unique and proven opportunity to promote your business to potential diners throughout Norfolk.
How it works
Each participating venue will offer a fixed price menu of either;
or a combination of these, for example, option A for lunch service and option B for dinner service.
Restaurants must offer a Restaurant Week menu during evening service Monday to Friday, however, lunch is optional. Weekends are fully excluded.
Participating restaurants must offer a level of food and service equal to their standard menu. Chosen price point should be equal to or in excess of a 20% discount off standard menu prices.
What they say
“Being a part of Restaurant Week was fantastic for our business. We had only been open six months when we decided to take part, and it proved the absolute right decision. The number of covers we catered for during the week was beyond what we could have hoped for, and every weekend we were fully booked. It helped put us on the map for customers who didn’t know we were there and had never tried us before and also gave regulars a great value for money dining experience. It was so successful we ran the special price menu for another week to give those who couldn’t get the chance to try it and again it was a sell-out! “ Phil & Beth Milner – Shucks Thornham.
“Restaurant week is a great opportunity to showcase our business and what we have to offer. The exceptional value for the diners and the complete marketing suite undertaken by the organisers brings many new faces to us who not only have never visited before but then go on to revisit at later dates after the event has ended. We aim to offer a similar menu as normal, which although is cheaper than our normal pricing, we see as an invaluable marketing cost rather than a loss of revenue.” Scott and Kelly – Wells Crab House, Wells next the Sea.
“Restaurant Week proved very successful for our business which at the time had recently changed hands. The timing provides a boost to Autumn takings, and we saw bookings steadily increase through the period. The menu was well received and promotion of the event and our destination by the Restaurant Week team was excellent. I would heartily recommend Norfolk Restaurant Week to all foodie establishments, and we look forward to this year’s expanded campaign.” Diana Brocklebank Scott, Director – Abbey Café & Food Hall, North Creake.
