The former Fabric Warehouse building will be transformed into a 180-seater restaurant over two floors complete with a bar designed like an island hut, an open street food style kitchen and a VW Campervan renovated into a seating area.

A spokesperson for Turtle Bay said: 'The team have pulled out all the stops for their first restaurant in Norfolk, which will be a beach-shack-inspired ray of sunshine.

'The bold, bright, joyful interior will be designed to transport Norwich guests to sunnier climes, and has been inspired by the independent spirit of its Lanes location.'

The restaurant will also create 50 new jobs in the city.
