Waitrose Good Food Guide 2017 and 2018
We were absolutely delighted last year to be in the Waitrose Good Food Guide 2017 after only 4 months of opening! Here's what they had to say about us....
“When Phil and Beth Milner took charge of this yurt in Drove’s Orchards a few months ago, it became an immediate hit with our readers and is one of our strongest Reader Recommended entries for 2017. Phil is an acclaimed Norfolk chef with a fabulous reputation; his international menu is a mix of refined and rustic dishes, with the common thread being their absolute deliciousness. This unique, laidback venue is a real find and I expect our readers will embrace it wholeheartedly.”
We were delighted to learn that we are also in the 2018 Guide out on September 4th 2017 and feature as a Local Gem - "a range of brilliant neighbourhood venues.....the places that sit happily on your doorstep, delivering good, freshly cooked food."
Black Shuck Legend
The legend of Black Shuck is one of the oldest in English Folklore. Black Shuck is the name given to a ghostly black dog that is said to have roamed the Norfolk and Suffolk coastline and countryside for hundreds of years.
Legend has it that the large shaggy dog with huge flaming eyes haunts the coastline and can be a bad omen to anyone who lays eyes on the creature. Other accounts talk of the ghostly dog roaming the coastline looking for his master lost at sea and that he acts as a protector for lone women or lost travellers.
Philip is well known for his love of spicy food and has created a Naga curry paste that will be available at the restaurant soon. We loved the idea of it and our new restaurant being named after a Norfolk legend with a bit of bite!
Here at Shuck’s at the Yurt in Thornham we like to believe the more benevolent sightings and old Black Shuck as a more companionable animal! Read our old magazine articles we have on display from the 50s and 70s detailing the different versions of this legendary folklore tale and make your own mind up…..!
