Christmas Food Shopping Norwich

We are staying near Norwich for Christmas in a self-catering apartment at Barnham Broom. Would really like to know where the nearest M & S is for food shopping and also any other great food shops in the surrounding area. Thanks in advance, MrsB.

Nearest M&S is in the centre of Norwich on the junction of St Stephens Street and Rampant Horse Street. It's one of their larger stores.

There is a Sainsburys at Longwater which is just off the Southern Bypass (A47 to Great Yarmouth) about 5-10 mins drive from Barnham Broom. Alternatively in the other direction (and also just off the A47) at Dereham there is a Tesco.

Whether they can be classed as great food shops is debateable but it would be a lot easier than going into the city centre, unless of course you combine some food shopping with your sightseeing.

If you go into the city it's worth popping into the Jarrolds department store which has an excellent deli on the basement floor - we buy a lot of treat foods there as well as an excellent selection of cheeses, salamis, etc.

If you are going out & about, have a loook at some of these producers - buy direct from the farm, OR you might find one of the farm shops is nearby:

I've mentioned it in your other thread, but head down to Holt in North Norfolk and browse the delicacies on offer at Larners - it's a fabulous place to stock up on the Christmas goodies!
