Farmyard is a Norwich based 'Bistronomy' style restaurant, where a relaxed 'bistro' experience meets the top quality produce and vibrant flavours normally found in "gastronomic" fine dining joints.

Everything is prepared in our open kitchen, including the sourdough bread, baked every day using our "mother" and our handmade butter. Meat, fish and vegetables are cooked over charcoal on our "Bertha" oven for incredible flavour.

Our approach is simple; handpicked ingredients, great cooking, carefully chosen wine and knowledgeable service in a refreshingly contemporary space.

Open every day from Tuesday to Saturday we serve a daily changing a la carte menu using produce sourced from some of Norfolk's most passionate producers. We also serve a 2 or 3 course set-price menu between 12 and 2.30pm for lunch and between 5.30pm and 6.30pm for pre theatre dining.

Exec Chef is Norfolk reared Andrew Jones.

We have been several time and this was a great experience as usual. The food is excellent and there are good vegetarian choices for friends. The staff are friendly and we had a lovely night, as did our guests.

The overall meal was extremely good and the starters and main courses were wonderful. As a table, we all had a different main and shared a range of starters and sides and every dish was well presented and delicious.
Our waitress was excellent and she also recommended a wine for the table which was very good. The only marginally disappointing element of the meal were the desserts (although two of the four diners thoroughly enjoyed theirs). I did not personally enjoy mine at all, particularly after the quality of the first parts of the meal.
I will certainly be returning however and have already recommended this to several friends. Many thanks to the team at Farmyard.

Always a good dinner at the Farmyard. I went with my boyfriend for the 3rd time and it never disappoints. Food is creative and tasty, the service is good and friendly.
My only regret is that I was to full to take a dessert.

First visit and perfect location for a meal after seeing a film at Cinema City. The staff were lovely, friendly and attentive. Loved the open kitchen. We went midweek and it was quiet I can imagine that it could get noisy if it was full of people. Every bite of food was delicious and we will definitely return! Price was spot on for the lovely food and drinks that we enjoyed.

This was the second time we’ve eaten here. This was a fantastic meal.
The mussels and chorizo starters and sourdough bread were amazing.
The mackerel starters were a bit on the small side for the boys though.
The bavette with kale was so tasty & well cooked and the roasted cabbage was surprisingly good. I’ve attempted it myself since!
Our waitress was really good and recommended amountsof food to have as sides & wine.
The atmosphere was great and the drinks menu was exciting. I even found s little ‘pineau’ for an aperitif!
A really great place for Norwich that’s getting it right for once!
Well done!
