The teenage head chef at a Norfolk Broads restaurant is set to face a new challenge. 

The Ranworth Granary Restaurant will be open over winter for the first time this year as well as launching a new menu. 

The winter menu has been put together by 18-year-old head chef Anya Robinson who took on the top job in August this year. 

She said: "The new dishes are simple things done well, with a bit of everything for everyone.

"I've taken on a lot more responsibility over the last few months but the hard work has been paying off, we've had great responses."

The venue has been owned by Steve and Penny Gray for 15 years and is usually fully closed during the colder months.

"The economy hasn't been good this year so we'll need the support of the local community but there's been high demand for us to stay open."

Miss Robinson's new menu includes new Sunday roasts and a sea bass special. 

The restaurant will be open from Friday to Sunday until December 23.
