Nuns from a convent in Swaffham have launched a pop-up restaurant in London.

The women from the Daughters of Divine Charity in the town served free chicken or lentil soup at the eatery in the capital which was called NUNdos.

To avoid the distractions of social media while in the restaurant, diners where encouraged to leave their phones in a bin before they entered.

For dessert the nuns served a takeaway treat as a reminder to diners to nourish the soul beyond the walls of NUNdos.
