The Marsham Arms in Hevingham is reopening on Saturday, July 4 and will now be open from Wednesday to Sunday, from midday.

Food will be served from 12pm to 9pm and head chef James Mortimer said: “It’s going to be strange and in terms of the industry, it will have a massive effect.

“We’ve missed our customers during lockdown, as we have not been open for takeaways, and we hope they will come out to support us, and also stay safe.”

The nearby Fox Steakhouse in Hevingham is also reopening on Saturday, July 4.
