It's our great pleasure to introduce you to the New Face of Norfolk Food and Drink – The Assembly House's very own Jamie Gooda!

Our talented young chef/front of house host and all round top banana Jamie recently won the title at the prestigious EDP Norfolk Food and Drink awards. A well-deserved award for an inspiring young man with a very big future ahead of him.

We are all very proud!



Immerse yourself in Georgian splendour by booking one of our stunning new rooms at The Assembly House.

We have 11 spacious and stylish rooms, six with their own secret gardens, four with their own lounges, a bridal suite with its own garden and two opulent top-floor suites to choose from, all of which boast top-of-the-range luxury fixtures and fittings.

The Richard Hughes Cookery School is coming to The Assembly House

Class dates announced October 2016. Cookery School opens January 2017



Bookings are now being taken for throughout the chilly season. As always, we will be serving our fantastic Festive Afternoon tea, seven days a week in our beautiful restaurant, Christmas party menus in our opulent private dining rooms and our nearly sold-out Christmas Day lunch and New Year's Eve Dinner Dance. 

We also have some majestic musical Afternoon Tea feasts planned for each Sunday in December and we will finish the season with our famous New Year's Day Buffet Brunch! View our full Christmas programme and menus here.

Please note: The Assembly House will be closed from Monday January 2 to Sunday January 8 while our staff enjoy a Hospitality Christmas (a week or two after the event!).



We still have a handful of prime Summer dates available for 2017 weddings. The Assembly House makes the perfect backdrop for your most special day. We can cater for your whole day from ceremony through to reception, with menus prepared by Chef Director Richard Hughes and served by our award-winning front of house team. Have a look at our beautiful new wedding brochure here.



What a wonderful way to ease yourself into a new week, a relaxed evening in The Music Room enjoying our fantastic Early Supper menu followed by a spot of jazz and blues from local legend Albert Cooper and the Chris Cooper Trio. You can, of course, just pop along for the music itself from 7pm onwards and enjoy a cocktail or two into the night. Future dates are Sunday October 16 and Sunday November 18 (Link to events page).



We have recently updated all of our menus from breakfast through to bedtime! We serve breakfast seven days a week from 7.30am, pop in for our beautiful baked eggs, stewed peppers, parsley, chorizo and chilli oil or a classic Eggs Benedict with delicious smoked salmon. Our tempting menu also includes American-style pancakes, Posh Cheese on Toast and, of course, the big one: a brilliant fry-up.

Over lunch you can choose from a traditional or a speciality sandwich, something savoury or something warm and hearty, finished off with a generous slice of cake.

We've launched a brand new High Tea (best enjoyed in front of our roaring fire) which includes a cosy selection of hot nursery treats alongside pastry chef Mark Mitson's stunning selection of cakes and pastries. Think sausage and onion pie, Scotch eggs and rarebit scones before cinnamon toast and crumpet fingers.

Lastly, our delicious new supper menu will soon be available until 8.30pm each and every night of the week!

Enough reasons to join us? We think so!
