Brasted's Past

John Brasted (or JB as he was generally known) founded Brasted’s in 1984.


Brasted’s was a 22 cover restaurant, centrally positioned on St. Andrews Hill, Norwich. Renowned for its high quality food and service, it fast became one of Norwich’s leading restaurants earning 3 AA rosettes.


Brasted’s enviable reputation soon created a demand for high quality outside catering. Since the late eighties we have provided catering for events across England. In 1999, with the lease expired, JB and Nick Mills (Managing Director) created Brasted’s Barns in Framingham Pigot.


Originally devoted to weddings, conferences and parties, Brasted’s offered a high quality venue for that special occasion. In 2004 Brasted’s Restaurant opened and in 2005, executive chef Chris Busby (Buzz) won EDP Norfolk chef of the year and Brasted’s won Norfolk restaurant of the year. 2006 saw Brasted’s win this highly auspicious award again. In September 2009 Brasted’s Lodge was created; beautiful guest accommodation comprising of six individually designed en suite bedrooms. 2010 proved to be a very successful year, serving HM The Queen, being awarded 2 AA Rosettes, 5 AA stars for Brasted’s Lodge and in September we were honoured once again by winning the coveted award of EDP Norfolk Restaurant of the Year.
