A father and daughter have taken on a Norfolk Broads restaurant, with plans to expand its menu to offer breakfast and themed nights.

Mark Thompson and 18-year-old Sophie, have taken over Fizz and Fromage, in Hoveton, from Tim and Heather Ridley.

The father-daughter team, from Worstead, will be continuing with the same menu, which features a range of 'cheese tapas' pairing plates, with 25 varieties on offer.

From September 16, the restaurant will be open every Saturday evening, followed by Sunday mornings for breakfast, from October 1.

There will be an "exciting" expanded evening menu of chicken, steaks and burgers, using locally sourced ingredients including from Toombs Butchers in Norwich, while the breakfast menu will feature a full English and avocado on toast.

Mr and Mrs Ridley, from Ashmanhaugh, also ran the Station Smokehouse at Hoveton and Wroxham Station, but announced its closure last week, with the website now reading "The Station Smokehouse is now closed".

Mr Thompson, 47, who has worked as a chef at Vera's Coffee Shop, said: "It is something I have wanted to do with my daughter and she qualified a couple of months ago, so the opportunity came up.

"The food will be loosely Italian in the evening and we will be keeping the prices down as much as we can, with dishes from £12 to £25."

There are also plans in place for themed nights once a month.

Miss Thompson trained as a chef while working for Mr Ridley for two years, before she was joined by her father six months ago. They took over the business at the beginning of the month.
