Do lunch at Clark & Ravenscroft, Norwich

Quite honestly, I would ‘do lunch’ every day if I could afford to; Norwich has so many delightful coffee bars and eateries, that I’d never get bored. Because there are so places to try, I only discovered Clark & Ravenscroft about a month ago after pootling round the shops.

In such a state of exhaustion, the smells emanating from the deli-cum-cafe seemed to waft down the street and lure me to St Gregory’s Alley (off Pottegate) and into the jaws of temptation.

Alas, it’s only a small place, but it’s definitely worth trying to get a table if you can, because it has such a nice atmosphere, with lots of people to watch. Actually, if the weather’s nice, you should try to get a table in the courtyard, so can enjoy the sunshine.

Autumnal feast

When I stopped for lunch, I had a delicious, fresh bowl of spiced pumpkin soup with a sumptuous cheese toastie (with your choice of cheese), which was filling and warm. Just what I needed on a cold winter’s day.

Clark & Ravenscroft also sell a range a deli items, from olives to honey and biscuits, which will make great gifts for the foodies in your life. I spent ages looking at all the shelves and trying not to spend a fortune!


Hi, I'm Lucy. I've lived in Norfolk since 2001 and in that time I've grown to love this fine county. From the city of Norwich, to the countryside villages and sweeping coastline, there's so much to explore and hope to share my experiences with you here.
