Chef and co-owner - Richard Bainbridge
Richard started out working in the kitchen at Morston Hall on the North Norfolk Coast aged 16 washing dishes, before packing his bags and moving around various kitchens in the UK and around the world, including America, Ireland and New Zealand. He has worked at the Waterside Inn with the Roux brothers starting as a commis chef and working his way up to junior sous chef over 3 years. He says Michel Roux is an ‘absolute genius’ and was gobsmacked by his passion and the food he produced.
Richard also worked at Thorntons in Dublin, where he was able to fuse his classical training with the future. This allowed him to push his boundaries and his flavour barriers. The following 7 years he was the head chef at Galton Blackiston’s Michelin starred Morston Hall until he opened his own Restaurant ‘Benedicts’ in Norwich in June 2015.


The unassuming exterior of Benedicts disguises hidden delights.  Simplicity continues with wooden floorboards, tables and chairs - but this is where the simplicity ends. A good relationship with local suppliers brings North Sea Cod, Cromer Crab and Kings Lynn Brown Shrimp along with local lamb and game and they meet with the culinary expertise of chef/proprietor Richard Bainbridge.

Benedicts opened its doors in June 2015 run by Richard and his wife Katja, and has gone from strength to strength since, winning many awards and in early 2018 received three AA Rosettes. With only 34 covers (and an upstairs room for a group), booking is recommended.
