The food at celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s new Norwich restaurant has been described as ‘delicious’.

Rachel Whitaker, from Barnham Broom, was among the first customers of the new Jamie’s Italian restaurant, in Royal Arcade, on its first day yesterday.

Ms Whitaker enjoyed a meal with her mother, Jean Whitaker, from Wells, who is pictured here enjoying a ravioli dish which included minted pea, asparagus and lemon which she described as ‘a taste of summer’.

Rachel said: “We hadn’t booked but had heard on the radio in the morning that it was opening day and we were heading to the city to do some shopping. We arrived and were given a buzzer as we sat at the bar and had a drink.

“About five minutes later the buzzer went off and we were taken to our table. The service was impeccable, there was a real buzz about the place and my honeycomb cannelloni was also delicious.

“We were very impressed and will be back!”
