There is nothing quite like going out for food.

Whether it is having a night off from cooking the tea for a nice meal out, sitting down in a cafe for a coffee and sandwich, or grabbing fish and chips by the coast, and our county has some lovely spots to grab a bite.

But, where is your favourite? Our reporter Aaron McMillan asked people in Fakenham where they most liked to eat out.

Mandy Burrows, 62, from Norwich, said: “A place called Saporita in Norwich. It's a little Italian place around the lanes. A group of Italians run the place and the food is fantastic and it has got a fantastic atmosphere. It is a lovely place to go and eat.”

Malcolm Jarvis, 87, from Fakenham said: “There are some pubs we like on the coast which have a lovely cosy feel to them, but I would say the Sculthorpe Mill as well. The food is lovely and very competitive. It is everything from the steak, but they also do the most amazing carrot cake there. The setting down by the river is stunning.”
