Newly opened Norwich pasta bar Yard has proved a massive hit for its affordable and authentic food packed with local produce. 

Yard launched in Pottergate in July and it is the brainchild of Brick Pizza owner George Colley and his friend Natty Crothers.

On offer is a simple menu of classic pasta dishes, including rigatoni with sausage, crème fraîche and fennel and pappardelle with beef shin ragù, and every item is under £10.

There are also a range of sides designed for sharing, with options such as Bread Source sourdough with confit garlic and anchovies and burrata with Nocerella oil and cocktails are also available.

Mr Colley, 31, said: "Yard has a similar ethos to Brick and we wanted an affordable, high quality pasta place. 

"The feedback has been very positive and we have had an amazing response from customers and we also have an amazing team and suppliers."
