We enjoy an evening at the North Norfolk Coast’s hottest new music venue
Written by Nicole Ranaweera
The North Norfolk coastline is fast becoming more and more of a haven for foodies, and with Thornham based restaurant-in-a-yurt, Shuck’s, recently winning the PRS for Music’s Music Makeover prize we can only expect to see greater things from this local business in the near future.
Situated along the stunning Norfolk coastline, this venue is fast becoming one of the must-visit restaurants in the county. Housed in a yurt, diners can expect a casual, family-friendly atmosphere complete with exquisite food. After winning this year’s music makeover award, Shuck’s is now the proud owner of a new sound system with plans to host local live music performances, including a Battle of the Bands and 3 Day Festival this summer.
As part of the celebrations, we were treated to a truly delicious 4-course meal, showcasing the best local produce in the surrounding area and the innovative skills and passion for food from owner and award-winning chef, Philip Milner.
Later on in the evening, thanks to the music makeover from PRS for Music, local neo-soul singer Mullally and electronic jazz trio Mammal Hands performed live inside the yurt. PRS for Music launched the annual Music Makeover competition six years ago to showcase and raise awareness of how important music is to local businesses and it is clear to see the added benefit this award has made to Shuck’s.
Shuck’s is part of the Drove Orchards community, just off the A149 coast road between Holme and Thornham. Within walking distance of the sea and set in over 350 acres of orchards, farmland and wild meadows, Drove Orchard houses a farm shop, fishmonger, Eric’s Fish and Chips and of course Shuck’s! With glamping also available on site from award-winning glamping company, Wild Living, this place has something for everyone and definitely should be top of your list to visit this summer!
Food served Monday to Friday 10am-9pm, Sat 9.30am-9pm and Sun 9.30am-6pm
