The Brasserie restaurant at Barnham Broom has recently welcomed the talented Mark Elvin to the team as Head Chef.

Set in over 300 acres of beautiful Norfolk countryside in the River Yare Valley, the Brasserie is a stylish yet relaxed restaurant, with a strong focus on local produce, at the heart of the Barnham Broom resort.

The coming season is a very exciting time for the Brasserie at Barnham Broom, as Mark brings his unique flare to the restaurant’s offering.

Norfolk born and bred, Mark studied Catering and Hospitality at Norwich City College for three years. He has now returned to his Norfolk roots after spending much of his culinary career working in award-winning hotels and restaurants across the UK.

He has plenty of experience creating menus which focus on Norfolk’s rich bounty of locally-sourced ingredients, which he is lucky to have right on his doorstep in our beautiful county. He is known for serving classic, robust flavours with a modern twist.

Mark, who is working alongside Executive Head Chef James Conway, plans to take the restaurant to the next level in culinary achievement.
Barnham Broom’s new winter menu features high-quality fare with thoughtful touches and unique flourishes. Both the ingredients and presentation of the food are of the upmost importance.

Top of Mark’s list is textures of heritage beetroot with whipped goats’ cheese to start followed by a braised shank of lamb and parsley mash with some special finishing touches. For dessert, the dark chocolate truffle torte, caramelised figs and raspberry sorbet is perfect to tantalise taste buds!

Members of staff from Just Regional were invited to sample the culinary skills on offer one Sunday lunch time.

They commented: “The ambience at Barnham Broom is very relaxed. The attentive staff are very warm and the food, as you can imagine, is just perfect.

“The Sunday roast is the best around and the staff even offer you more potatoes and Yorkshire puddings half way through the meal!

“All of this whilst overlooking the wonderful golf course. Don’t take our word for it, please try for yourselves.”
