A: We offer an a la carte menu of around 10-11 savoury dishes and recommend that you choose 3. We also have 3 desserts.
A: Nordic cuisine is about using what you have when it is at it’s best, and preserving the extra to use later on. Norse will use many of the traditional techniques for preserving food but in a modern style. We are currently using ingredients from across the UK and abroad but as we grow we will focus on using more and more local ingredients.
A: Norse is a relaxed restaurant. There is no particular dress code other than nothing that could offend other diners.
A: Our front of house team try all the dishes as they come on the menu and have an explanation from the chefs. Sometimes we will need help jogging our memory and we will confirm anything with the kitchen.
A: Yes! We are licensed for the sale of alcohol until midnight. We have a wide-ranging drinks list that includes aperitifs, craft beers and a selection of wine by the bottle or glass. After dinner there are dessert wines and whisky. Paul has a particular hankering for gin, so we currently have 10 options for your gin and tonic primarily from small regional UK distilleries.
A: We decided to use Riedel stemless wine glasses because we were concerned about space and stability on our tables. Some of our older tables are quite rustic and uneven, this is not a good recipe for the survival of wine glasses. If you have a particular aversion to drinking from a stemless glass we do have some glasses with stems available for use – just give us an extra minute or two to dig them out.
A: You will be provided with tap water as standard with your meal, if you would like to order bottled water this is also available.

A: Snaps is a Scandinavian pre/during/post dinner alcoholic drink and is known in Germany and other European countries as Schnapps. Traditionally many Scandinavians use akvavit as the based for their snaps and then infuse the alcohol with a variety of flavours both sweet and savoury.
