The Café at Brovey Lair
A very private place


There are birthdays, engagements. anniversaries, graduations, promotions, retirement or just because you feel like celebrating. Brovey Lair is Norfolk’s
Best Restaurant
says The Good Food Guide 2016 so where better to
entertain your friends, family or VIP clients?  But if it's romance and candle
lit dinners for two you are into, followed by an overnight stay in one of our dimly lit garden suites, we'll move the party to another night.

Brovey Lair’s intimate dining space was designed to accommodate parties up to 24 but it is the food that leaves other venues miles behind. All about fish and seafood, Brovey Lair sources its produce both locally and internationally; especially flown in by air. Fresh food is its mantra so nothing is ever frozen – except the ice cream!

Extracts from Reviews posted on the Internet

  • The fusion of flavours is impossible to describe. Watching it being cooked added to the overall experience.

  • Our third trip to this superb eating venue. We forget between visits what a superior experience is Brovey Lair; which only adds to the pleasure of rediscovery.

  •  The food deserves a Michelin star. I have been to El Bulli, Le Gavroche, Fat Duck, Le Bernadin but this is one that will be a real treasured memory.

  •  The food combinations, spices and quality are outstanding and more amazing than some of the places we have eaten in London!

  •  To find such a restaurant in the heart of Norfolk is nothing short of amazing.

  •  I'm struggling to find the words to describe the evening meal that Tina prepared for us. From the aperitifs through to dessert, everything was simply superb.

  •  Tina's fusion food is outstanding - every mouthful was an exquisite explosion of flavours and she goes to great lengths to ascertain your likes and dislikes and caters accordingly.

  •  We stayed for two nights and it was a real experience made even more memorable by the hospitality fun and wit of Mike and Tina.

  •  The food was sensational. This is billed as one of the top seafood restaurants anywhere - but this isn't just seafood; it's a fusion of flavours and textures.

  •  The very best of Michelin standard food but without all the pretentious nonsense.
    A unique experience. 

  • Gastronomic delight you will
    not be sorry you stumbled across!
    Tina would give any top London chef a run for their money. It makes me smile now when I think about those scallops!
