Team behind Nest and Restaurant St Barts to open new Farmhouse restaurant in Norfolk

The team responsible for Restaurant St Barts and Nest is set to unveil Nest Farmhouse in King's Lynn, Norfolk, in the upcoming spring season.

Nest Farmhouse is scheduled to open its doors in late May 2024, situated within a restored cattle shed on a working farm in Norfolk.

Co-founders Luke Wasserman, Toby Neill, and Johnnie Crowe will open the site at the thousand-acre Docking Lodge Farm, which will provide the kitchen with potatoes, parsnips, carrots, and barley.

Under the supervision of executive chef Crowe and head chef Grant Cotton, the menu will feature local and foraged ingredients sourced from the north Norfolk coastline, alongside sustainably-reared produce.

The restaurant's interiors will be as meticulously curated as the menu, featuring furniture, crockery, and glassware sourced from independent local designers and artists.

Nest Farmhouse represents the operators' first permanent venture beyond London and into the Norfolk countryside. The trio initially launched their first restaurant, Nest, in Hackney in 2018, featuring a tasting menu spotlighting sustainably farmed British produce. They later relocated to a larger venue in Shoreditch late last year.

Following their endeavor, they introduced a second seasonal British restaurant called Fenn in Fulham in 2021. Unfortunately, due to staff shortages, Fenn closed its doors in March 2023.

Restaurant St Barts debuted in Smithfield in late 2022 and has since garnered both a Michelin star and a green star for its commitment to sustainability.

'We've had a great year with the opening of Nest in Shoreditch and receiving a Green Michelin Star at Restaurant St Barts alongside retaining our Michelin Star, making us the only restaurant in London to hold both,' said Crow.

'We're thrilled for our move to Norfolk and to open within a working estate - with incredible produce and producers right on our doorstep. We look forward to welcoming our guests in the best way we know - with considered food and wine, now in this idyllic setting.'
