The Café at Brovey Lair™
A very private place

Parties are not just for Christmas! 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 2015 so where better  to entertain at Christmas and the  New Year?  But if it's romance and candle lit dinners for two you are into, followed by an overnight stay in one of our low lit garden suites, we'll move the party to another night.
Number one in Norfolk for the 7th year running
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!

"Unique experience with food to match." Tina and Mike Pemberton, owners and hosts of Brovey Lair, are world-travellers who have brought the culinary influences of Asia, Europe, The Middle East and Latin America together to create some of the most amazing fusion food I have ever tasted. Best of all, you decide what you would like to eat before you arrive so the only surprise is the exciting flavours of Tina’s distinctive cuisine. The focus is on freshly caught fish, although Tina can provide other dishes for those who do not eat fish……. The whole experience makes you feel as if you are guests in this dynamic couple’s own home, but with culinary skills to rival even London’s top restaurants!
