From burgers to seafood, here are five food and drink businesses that have opened in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston so far this year. 

1. Fupburger

Fupburger launched its latest street food truck outside The Tramways pub in Gorleston on Friday, February 11.

Located behind the pub in Lowestoft Road, the menu includes single, double, triple and quad burgers made with its signature beef, as well as vegan and vegetarian options.

After The Tramways reached out to Fupburger last year, it was an "easy decision" to make for owner Tom Shiers.

"I have been wanting to move into Gorleston for a long time," he said. "We have opened in Lowestoft and it felt like the natural progression to move up the coast – being a costal boy myself."

Having closed under its previous ownership in January, The Courtyard was taken over by Gail Smith and Bruno Francisco of Luck, Lust, Liquor, and Grinds at Peggotty's Lounge in King Street.

Having made a few changes to the decor, fans of The Courtyard can expect the same authentic Italian menu but with a few tweaks.

A minor name change means it will be known simply as Courtyard.

3. Urban Oasis

In January Urban Oasis introduced the women's-only fitness space complete with a bar serving teas and coffees, or even a cocktail.

Since opening, many of the salon's customers have been keen to try out the equipment including a flashing cardio wall.

The equipment had been purchased in 2019 but the Covid pandemic halted progress.

There are 14 fitness machines including cross-trainers, running machines and Vibroplates as well as weights and kettles.

4. The Octopus Restaurant

Its menu includes a range of street food dishes such as loaded burritos, tacos, burgers and loaded fries.

Novo Kitchen also sells Perry's thick shakes, which is proving popular, as well as hot and cold drinks.
