The team behind The York pub in Norwich are expanding into the city centre with a new concept.

Andrew McNeil has run The York in Leicester Street since October 2019 with the aim to make it a city foodie destination.

The publican has now taken the helm at the Edith Cavell in Tombland, which was previously run by Ben Edwards as he also owned upstairs steak restaurant Prime.

When Prime recently relocated to a bigger premises in St Giles Street, Mr McNeil saw the perfect opportunity to expand.

He said: "It has a great location and history and I loved Prime, but feel like I can do something different here now.

"We will open from 9am and it will be a café bistro during the day, with brunches and lunches for people to eat-in or takeaway.

"In the evening, the upstairs will offer contemporary fine dining with a modern European style, and downstairs we will serve tapas."

The pub will still be called The Edith Cavell, but he may rename the upstairs restaurant, and it is set to open in late May or early June this year.
