Welcome! After a long wait and some admin hiccups, we are finally residents at The Old Bank Bistro and Coffee Shop in Snettisham, North Norfolk. We are incredibly excited about this opportunity and we cannot wait to meet you all.
Just a few words about the pair of us. We are a husband and wife team, about to celebrate our first wedding anniversary in August. I (Aga) am Polish, but have now lived in the UK for 10 years. Lewis grew up around here, in Dersingham, so it is very much a coming home gig for him! Between us, we have worked in catering for about 30 years - most recently in Cambridge for the Cambscuisine group, where I headed the Cambridge Chophouse and Lewis was head chef at The Tickell Arms in Whittlesford. A couple of years ago, we decided it is time to find a place we can call our own and The Old Bank is just that. Alongside Lewis in the kitchen, we've got Lewis' younger brother, Alastair, who has previously worked with him at The Tickell Arms and one of Alan Murchison's restaurants down in New Forest. The front of house is in the 'oh so capable' hands of Ania - my younger sister. She is only here for a bit, but her help has been invaluable.
We spent 2 weeks on refurbishment and we believe the results to be fantastic! We are all about delicious food and drinks, prepared with a tonne of passion and imagination and served in a friendly atmosphere. Come and find out for yourselves!
