A new restaurant is being opened in north Norfolk by a company that has cafés and bars along the coast.

The Gangway is opening The Quarter Deck in Sheringham later this year as its first foray into the restaurant world. 

The new addition to its portfolio will be a bottle shop and kitchen next door to the firm's cocktail and coffee bar in the town.

Owner Will Chandler said: "We noticed a gap in the market on the coast, there are not many restaurants that aren't pubs.

"It's nice to be independent when so much of the coast is being bought out by big companies.

"There's a place right next to our Sheringham drinks bar that seemed perfect."

The Gangway also has a branch in Church Street in Cromer which opened in 2019 and serves more than 50 different craft beers. 

The Quarter Deck will open in Station Approach this autumn and Mr Chandler said it is a brand new concept for the team.

He added: "The front will be a bottle shop with craft beer and natural wines and the back will be the restaurant.
