A restaurant in north Norfolk has retained its sought-after status as it was named among the best in the world for a second year running.
French group La Liste has named the Michelin-starred Morston Hall among its top 1,000 restaurants worldwide.
Celebrity chef Galton Blackiston and his wife Tracy own, and have run, the restaurant since 1992.
Mr Blackiston said: "This is something that we were awarded last year, it was a massive shock then, now it is something very extraordinary.
"It is amazing to also go up in mark. It is a testament to the hard work of the staff all around Morston Hall."
