The east of England enjoys a vast stretch of coastline of its own, yet it doesn't seem to be as synonymous with holidays as the South West. What is it known for, however, is the beauty of its landscapes and the bounty these produce - making it the ideal location for destination dining. This collection highlights some of the best award-winning restaurants in the east of England, from Michelin starred restaurants in Cambridge to fine dining in Norfolk and beyond.

Chefs cooking in the county of Norfolk have access to its wealth of local ingredients, from seafood to agricultural and artisanal produce. Morston Hall, a restaurant with rooms residing in an 18th century manor house, offers daily changing menus highlighting the very best of the area, while The Neptune makes the most of its coastal location with wonderful seafood along with its famous fruity desserts.
