The Assembly House, Norwich

Many choose The Assembly House for its afternoon tea, but have you ever tried their Sunday lunch? Served from noon until 2pm, guests can tuck into spiced parsnip and pear soup to start, or dressed prawns and crayfish, before following it up with roast loin of pork with apricot, oat and sage stuffing, sirloin of Norfolk beef or squash, sage and chestnut wellington. If you're feeling particularly indulgent, why not add a side of Bingham Blue cauliflower cheese or sprouts with chestnuts and bacon.
