A south Norfolk town will be painted red, white and blue this weekend when a local diner hosts an American-themed event.
The Fairland Diner, in Wymondham, is holding an American barbecue on Saturday.
New owners Liz Solly and Craig Barker, who took over the diner in January, said they wanted to host a special event in the evening.
Miss Solly said: “We wanted to do something in the evening because most of our business is during the day time.
“Our chef, who is American, is a trained Spanish and Italian chef. We wanted to hold some themed evenings.
“When we first opened I met a customer who has a smoked barbecue.”
Pulled pork sandwiches, barbecue chicken and ribs will be on the menu while vegetarians can indulge in macaroni cheese. There will also be corn on the cob, salads and coleslaw.
People are welcome to bring their own drinks.
Miss Solly said the event will also be an appropriate send-off for a member of staff who is going to university this year.
“Rachel is going to Portsmouth university and she has been on a trip across America this summer.
“She flew to New York and went on a trek across to San Francisco. She is a very special young lady.”
And this could just be a start of creative culinary evenings at the diner.
“We want to hold a Caribbean evening and hopefully we will be able to do something for Wymondham steampunk fayre in November.”
The barbecue will be held from 6pm until 10pm on Saturday.
