I’d like to take a moment to mention a great little restaurant that we had the pleasure of working with at our Campfire Supper. They set the evening off to a flying start by greeting our guests with delicious canapés. I even caught a group of guests in our kitchen area, licking the leftover hazelnut puree from one of their whisks and mixing bowls! Bearing in mind these guests were in their forties, it speaks volumes about good food when it can turn respectable adults back into naughty children!
So when the dreaded day came where my girlfriend and I had to introduce our parents, what better way to break the ice than round a table at The Madder Market Kitchen? Based in the middle of Norwich, opposite St Andrews Car Park, round the corner from Pottergate and The Rumsey Wells pub, this quiet and quirky venue is both central, yet reserved. Stepping into its quaintly decorated reception with its slightly slanty wooden floors and cosy, yet bright interior, this restaurant clearly has a unique charm but in no way feels pretentious or overbearing.
With a warm and friendly greeting from our waitress, we were led into the dining area which was intimate and offered plenty of privacy. The food was excellent, freshly prepared, well cooked and expertly presented. More surprising still was the value; three courses cost just less than £25, when many restaurants could have charged that much for the main course alone! The pan fried hake is a definite winner as well.
Despite having been established for mere months, this place is already set to become one of the best places to eat in Norwich with people queuing down the street. Book your table now by calling 01603 460558!!!
