Jules Kitchen opened Red Lion Street in Aylsham in October 2018 after relocating from the Alby Service Station on the A140 Cromer Road which first opened in 2013.

For the last six years, owner Jules Crook, 55, from Ingworth has been serving Slimming World-friendly meals, alongside the regular menu, which are syn-free or low-syn and next to dishes it is marked with zero or low.

Mrs Crook decided to open Jules Kitchen in Aylsham as she lives close by and the Slimming World classes are "really popular" in the town and she works alongside her daughter Chelsea.

Among the diet-friendly dishes offered in the restaurant include the Chub Club breakfast, which include toast, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes and beans, and a daily specials menu with dishes such as beef chilli and jacket potato, diet pepsi chicken and rice and lasagne.
