The Earlham, Norwich has a new menu

Have you tried it yet?

We did on Sunday 30th January.

I went with my husband Pete, and what a lovely welcome from Assistant Manager Aidan and the staff, Dan, Stan and Alysha. The Earlham offers Casual Dining in the Heart of NR2

The quirky decor and the atmosphere of The Earlham are wonderful and every which way you turn there is something new to look at – The Earlham says that Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe (see if you can find the actual words when you visit) and I believe the vibe of this place is going to attract a fantastic tribe

Once shown to our table and drinks ordered we perused the menu, which has been created by head chef Ollie.

Ollie told us that he’s Norwich born and bred but has worked for some wonderful chefs including Robin Gill at The Dairy in London and Norwich’s own Richard Bainbridge. He’s also travelled and worked in Australia and with Steve at Bread Source.

Ollie loves bread and makes the Focaccia fresh every day – he says his influences are Japanese and Nordic food; focusing on taste and diversity, using the purest, freshest and simplest seasonal produce to create stunning beautiful dishes packed with flavour. It certainly shows.

The menu is designed to be a sharing menu because his belief is that food should be shared and enjoyed by everyone. What better than a group of friends around a table with one of everything on the menu and all able to dig in and try everything!

So what did we choose?

The Karnatakan Mussels, Chaat Masala Fried Chicken, House Sourdough Focaccia and the Smoked Beetroot

Oh my goodness! The flavours were a total riot on the taste buds. Ollie has achieved a fabulous menu that will be added to over the next few weeks, so a return visit is definitely on the cards.



The Karnatakan Mussels were a beautiful blend of wine, lime, coriander, coconut, Kashmiri chilli powder and herbs and spices

The Chaat Masala Chicken – must have been delicious as I didn’t even get a chance to photograph it before Pete had dived in!

The burnt Aubergine was smooth and silky – the perfect accompaniment to the homemade focaccia, but my favourite of all the dishes was the Smoked Beetroot served with Charlie’s leaves, horseradish and Hazelnuts. YUM!

Next time you’re heading out of the city on the Earlham Road and fancy a treat with a cool vibe, stop at The Earlham, they open Tuesday to Friday 3-11, Saturday 12-11 and Sunday 12-10 — I cant wait to return!
