A city eatery is relaunching as a "secret burger club" with some new additions on the menu. 

The Bun Exchange, tucked away in the Butcher Bhoy pub in Exchange Street, will soon be adding to its customers' dining experience.

The burger firm has been residing in the pub's kitchen for nearly eight months and owner Jeff Taylor said it has been a "match made in heaven". 

And now they really want to put their stamp on the place.

There will soon be a dedicated Bun Exchange dining area, which will be entered via a "secret" door at the back of the building.

The restaurant area will also have table service and will be refurbished with a retro and vintage theme.

Mr Taylor said they will also be launching a new brunch and lunch menu, with dishes including eggs benedict, smashed hash browns and French toast pancakes, all with a Bun Exchange twist.

And Norwich's Kookie Ko will also be providing some new dessert options.
