Casual restaurant Socius is North Norfolk’s newest eatery which encourages sharing with its menu of modern British, tapas-style dishes

Having just opened at the end of February, Socius is Burnham Market’s newest restaurant. The name is derived from the Latin adjective meaning sharing, joining in or partaking, and owners Natalie Stuhler and Dan Lawrence are inviting visitors to do just that.

Shareable tapas-style plates are packed with local and seasonally changing Norfolk ingredients. “We’re actively going out to our suppliers and asking them what’s best this week or this month, so the menu will change depending on the best of the best of what they can offer,” says Natalie.

Food is modern British, served New York-style with customers encouraged to order lots of small plates to share with friends and family.

The building itself reflects the social aspects of the restaurant’s ethos with a big open kitchen where you can see the food being prepared and a mezzanine floor with seating that overlooks the restaurant. In the summer, the terrace will be opened out for al fresco dining.

You’ll want to bring your friends for a boozy brunch on the weekends. The brunch menu is extensive with dishes such as ox cheek hash with a fried egg and fruity brown sauce, or we like the sound of the buckwheat blini with smoked salmon and cream cheese. Make sure to order a mimosa (or three) too!

Gather the entire family on a Sunday and make sure to order a whole roast joint to be carved at your table (for tables of six or more guests), alongside tempting trimmings such as duck fat potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, roasted roots, braised red cabbage, cauliflower cheese and plenty of gravy.
