The first secret dishes being offered by restaurants around the county as part of a new year series have been revealed.

In October, it was revealed that a Norwich foodie - who wanted to remain anonymous - was launching the county's own secret menu series, which would see diners arrive, whisper the 'secret item' and tuck in.

Roughly 100 pubs, cafés and restaurants signed up, with the dishes set to be available from January to March 2020.

Over the last few weeks, the first few 'off menu' dishes have been revealed, with plenty more to come.

So to whet your appetites, here are a handful you can try around Norfolk.
