An award-winning pub in west Norfolk is shaking things up this spring with extended opening and a new menu.

The Angel at Watlington, near King's Lynn, was taken on by couple Emily Phipps and chef Richard Crouch in 2018 and they completely refurbished the premises.

With a strong focus on seasonal and local produce it has won a whole host of awards and accolades, including featuring in the Estrella Damm Top 100 Gastropubs 2022 list. 

The opening days have now been extended from Wednesday to Sunday to seven days a week due to customer demand. 

There is a new lunch menu too, which includes a steak, mushroom and tomato sandwich and fresh cockles with crusty brown bread.

Miss Phipps said: "So far the reaction has been really positive and we have had a good mix of people coming in for the lunch and full menu - it gives people a lot more choice."
