Our Story

We’re 100% plant-based, plastic-free & mostly gluten-free

Erpingham house is grade 2 listed building in the heart of Norwich’s historic Tombland area, laying in the shadows of the city’s cathedral. The Tombland area dates back to the viking era and was a busy market place, during the age when Norwich was the second largest city behind London.

The building dates back to 1890 and was originally a home to the Erpingham family, before more recently trading as a steak restaurant. After adopting a plant-based diet whilst living in London and travelling the world, founder Loui Blake decided to open a venue that could offer the same foods & drinks he’d fell in love with on his travels in his home city, to offer more people the opportunity to access & learn about plant-based foods in a creative space.

The idea was born from a desire to create a multi-dimensional space, a home from home, that could be enjoyed by people throughout the day and help promote sustainable, health-conscious food & drinks. Erpingham House is a local business, built by local people, with Norwich-based designers Berry's & Grey desinging the interior, head chef Zak Carey creating the menu, and an ownership of local family & friends, including former Norwich city footballers Russell Martin & Declan Rudd.

Head Chef: Zak Carey
