A restaurant on the north Norfolk coast has been named the county's best.

The White Horse at Brancaster Staithe won the title of best restaurant in Norfolk at the 2024 Muddy Awards.

Each year the Muddy Stilettos magazine asks its 3.8 million readers to nominate their favourite local businesses in 28 counties nationwide.

Every business is placed into one of 21 categories and a public vote narrows each category down to the top five in each county.

The White Horse was announced as one of the top five in April and was crowned Norfolk's best earlier this week.

The restaurant is run by Anglian Country Inns and sits right on the marshes that stretch over the Brancaster coast.

It has won a string of other awards and currently holds two AA Rosettes.

Fran Hartshorne, The White Horse's executive head chef, was recently voted the Anglian Country Inns 'Chef's Chef' by her colleagues at the firm's nine other establishments.

In March, the venue's on-site hotel was told it was offering a four star service.
