Best cheap restaurants in Norfolk picked by Galton Blackiston

As part of the Cheap Eats series in our Money blog, we ask Michelin chefs to pick their favourite place for a cheap meal where they live and when they cook at home. This week we speak to Galton Blackiston of the Michelin-starred Morston Hall in Norfolk...

Hi Galton, can you tell us your favourite places in Norfolk where you can get a meal for two for less than £40?

Allium in Downham Market, a family run restaurant which involves mum, dad, Joe in kitchen and James front of house. Open Wednesday through to Sunday, it has a great vibe on a Saturday evening and great food.

Bure River Restaurant, a tiny restaurant on the broads in Horning cooking lovely fish dishes.

Final cheap place is the Parlour in Binham, where they have a great restaurant and you put money into an honesty box for their local cheese from the village and raw milk from their farm - a great place to visit in Norfolk.
