A Norfolk Broads pub is making a splash with its new menu and its signature seafood platter has proved a big hit.

The Ranworth Maltsters is run by couple Fern and Marcus Knight and head chef Nigel Staines has been with them for many years.

They recently launched their spring and summer menu and it includes a lamb and sticky date tagine and sharers such as a picnic board and seafood platter.

The latter is for two and includes a whole fresh lobster, two dressed Cromer crabs, smoked salmon, crevettes, crayfish, smoked mackerel, prawns and artisan bread.

Mrs Knight said: "We sell out of them every day and have had lots of compliments."

"We wanted a menu that used more local produce."

The outdoor pizza den reopens for the 2022 season on Saturday, April 9, and they are currently creating an ice cream den in a converted horsebox, which will open by the summer.
