HICK­MAN’S £500,000 IN­VEST­MENT

EDP Norfolk - - Food Bites II -

High-fly­ing Nor­wich restau­ra­teur Roger Hick­man is to in­vest £500,000 in his Up­per St Giles St busi­ness.

The AA 3 Rosette restau­rant is to get a new din­ing room and sec­ond kitchen, al­low­ing pri­vate din­ing, a room for small func­tions and cook­ery demon­stra­tions on the first floor and in­creas­ing ca­pac­ity by 50%.

Work has al­ready started on re­plac­ing the roof of the build­ing, with the new din­ing room due to open early in 2018.

“Since we opened in 2010, we have been con­strained by space, both in terms of num­bers of cov­ers, and in our abil­ity to ac­com­mo­date larger par­ties,” said Roger. “The new din­ing room will en­able us to offer ta­bles for larger par­ties, as well as ac­com­mo­date wed­dings and pri­vate par­ties, some­thing we are con­stantly be­ing asked to do.

“Half a mil­lion pounds is an enor­mous in­vest­ment for an in­de­pen­dent restau­rant, but I am con­fi­dent that in a city largely made up of chain restau­rants, that there is a healthy ap­petite for qual­ity in­de­pen­dent es­tab­lish­ments.”
