New room at Roger’s
Roger Hickman has opened his long-awaited private dining room at his eponymous Norwich restaurant after a 16-month, £500,00 renovation. The upstairs dining space has one large table seating up to 16 people, also has a demonstration kitchen.
Private dining, small functions and cookery demonstrations will now be on offer in the first floor space, above the 38-cover, award-winning restaurant. “The new dining room will enable us to offer tables for larger parties, as well as accommodate weddings and private parties, something we were constantly being asked to do,” said Roger Hickman, who opened the restaurant in February 2010. “Building a second, separate kitchen will also enable us to put on cookery demonstrations and ensure that we can give a great service to our private diners without compromising what we offer in the main restaurant.”
The renovation has also created staff accommodation on the top floor. Creating the new space has involved a major refurbishment, including a new roof, the installation of a full kitchen to serve the upstairs dining space and a bespoke handbuilt front window designed to fit in with the numerous listed buildings on the street. rogerhickmansrestaurant.com
