A candlelit dinner at an intimate restaurant or meal at your local pub will be off the cards for Valentine's Day this year.

We might still be in lockdown, but restaurants and pubs across Norfolk and Waveney, forced to shut their doors, hope to make the occasion worth celebrating with takeaways and deliveries.

Here are just a handful of the local spots offering options for the Valentine's weekend.
