    I've been here a few times over the last 9 months and every single time the experience has become better and better. Originally they didn't really have enough staff to cover a busy shift, but the staff they did have went out of their way to help. I went back last Saturday with my partner (back on holiday in Norfolk) and not only do they have more than enough staff (I counted 5 waiting staff for about 12 tables) the food was even better than last time. The duck is amazing. The burrata never fails to impress. The chips are fantastic. The deserts are incredible (the chocolate bar in particular!). If I lived near Socius I would be in there at least once a week; reasonably priced and exquisite food. Whilst No.29 is fine, and the Hoaste is decent...Socius has a unique charm - it's nice without being pretentious, the food is excellent without being over-priced, the staff are polite without giving the impression of only wanting a tip. There is nothing to not love about Socius.

    The foods at Socius is excellent, fresh ingredients, imaginative and well cooked. We been a fair number of times since Socius opened and we are very lucky to have it in Burnham Market. I have two issues ( they won’t stop us returning of course) Firstly, definitely best to be seated down stairs - upstairs can be quite noisy when the place is full (it usually is). Secondly, although the menu is interesting and varied (and they do have regular theme evenings with special menus, which are great), the basic menu never seems to change at all. Having said these two little things, Socius is a great place to eat.

    We were visiting friends and they took us here for lunch. We had four children with us ranging from 5-13yrs and the menu was very accommodating for them. The food was delicious. We had a range of the tapas and they were all full of flavour and so tasty. We would definitely visit again if we are ever passing that way.

    A memorable anniversary celebration with dishes that were off the scale in flavour. Just outstanding.

    Dinner for 8, a full restaurant, slick service, wonderful cooking and presentation. Classy wine list with some excellent local Flint wines to choose from, the Baccus is really first class and was thoughrilly enjoyed by all. Food from a well thought out menu was as usual was right on the mark, with a succession of tasty, flavoursome dishes hitting our table in a stream of well timed service intervals. Fantastic value and half the price you would pay in a big city for such quality. We live in Burnham Market and we count ourselves extremely lucky to have Socius within walking distance. Thank you Natalie and Dan.

    Never used this platform before but when our friends took us to Socius last night I felt compelled to write a review. Fantastic in every single way, food is top notch with service to match. Couldn’t fault a single thing, can’t wait to return!

    Like some other reviewers, we are not food snobs. We too are pretty well travelled and have also dined in numerous nice places around the world however it is our opinion that Socius ranks extremely highly. The quality of the food is quite remarkable as is the service provided by the owners who clearly take immense pride in everything they do. The huge proportion of 5 star reviews give an accurate reflection of what to expect when you visit. Not only is this the best restaurant in Norfolk, it is one of the best restaurants any of us have ever visited. We are already planning our next visit!

    Great night 3rd Jan 2020 at Socius. Great food, further complemented by the very attentive and friendly staff. Tapas dishes were great and very varied, stand outs were the Pork Belly, Lamb (special) and the sticky prawns. Natalie the manager was so nice and even let me try and perfect my Espresso Martini (previously struggled with the froth!!), having had 2 of theirs. So nice to let me try albeit I still epic failed !!🥴. #1 status of where to eat in Burnham Market and fully understand why. Thanks for a great last night stay Socius. Sacha

    Absolutely brilliant. First class food and service. Something different for the area and would thoroughly recommend.

    We’d heard the rave reviews, everyone in Leicestershire had been yapping on about it so we finally made it through the socius doorway to see what all the fuss was about. Fuss it was not. From the moment we walked through the doorway I felt like we were transported into another world. A beaming owner greeted us like friends, swiftly took the 6 of us to our table (which was directly opposite the kitchen and fascinating to watch) and got us watered and drinks within minutes, despite the restaurant being completely full and very busy. She (I wish I could remember her name sorry!) answered all of our questions about the menu with ease and we opted to go for the chefs selection. this was £30 a head (an absolute steal for what you get). What followed then was a stream of what can only be described as some of the best food I have ever tasted. First some delectable ‘drinking snacks’ the most delicious prawns, some focaccia which consensus agreed was the best we’d ever tasted and the most exquisite pickled mushrooms I could honestly eat them all day every day. We then had an array of gorgeous, beautifully presented dishes, from the most delicate vegetarian dishes (I and all others had never tasted vegetables so good) to the most beautifully cooked meat paired with some incredibly rich lip smacking lay delicious sauces. I could go on and on. Throughout the meal the aforementioned owner was constantly coming over, replenishing our drinks, checking on the dishes and chatting to us (not your normal ‘is everything ok’ chitter chatter but actual genuine conversation which is so rare in establishments these days) god knows how she had time but she worked the room like nobody’s business! The desserts. Oh the desserts!! Heaven on a plate. I know I have rambled but this young couple deserve all the praise they get. It was the best meal I can remember having, period. The Michelin star will be on its way very soon, I’m certain. Thank you thank you thank you for an incredible meal! We are already plotting our return!

    Total disappointment and would not return unfortunately! First I should say we are definitely not food snobs, most of our party are pretty well travelled through our various jobs and have dined in numerous nice places around the world, but we certainly do not class ourselves as food experts however we do like nice well presented tasty food. The wife had recently visited whilst in Burnham with her girlfriends and had raved about Socius and how good the food was for weeks when she retuned home, so much so that when we returned some weeks later for New Years week with friends I insisted we all went for dinner. Expectations were high given the wife’s initial experience, however upon arrival a couple of us immediately commented to each other about the strong smell of fried cooking as we entered the stylishly turned out restaurant, I also personally noticed a very greasy floor underfoot, but we received a warm welcome, were quickly seated and drinks promptly arrived shortly after ordering. Once seated one of more observant of our party instantly noticed that all the tables were laid incorrectly with cutlery laid to the right instead of the left! Not that that would put us off a good meal! We were a party of 6 that all opted for what is effectively the chefs taster menu at £30 per head. A single slice per guest of the house Focaccia bread arrived soon after the food order was placed and the first chefs plate of battered prawns arrived thereafter. The prawns were hot, of a good size and fairly tasty but for us the food went very quickly down hill thereafter. Battered mushrooms followed (some of our party incorrectly commented that they thought the mushrooms contained meat too, such was the taste!) it was then that the levels of grease content of the food on the plates started to increase significantly as the courses went on, everything seemed to arrive at the table deep fried, so much so a few of us commented amongst ourselves that we felt slightly queezy due to the overload of greasy food we had eaten. The beef/steak plate was quite nice but in terms of value for money (if ordered as a single plate) at £25 for per plate of around 100grammes or so of steak (not Wagyu!) is over egging it any place in our opinion, as a positive for me personally the lamb cutlets were nice but all in all hardly the exquisite dining experience any of us had been expecting and read about in many other reviews. So in summary we were probably just unlucky to have stumbled upon a bad night for the kitchen, we hope you have a better experience than we did, for us being served plates of greasy food at a high price doesnt really hit the spot so we won’t be back anytime soon!

    Well the reviews are terrific and a lot of aspects are good but maybe I'm the first to say the emperor is in the nude.Cannot argue with the fact that they have won best restaurant in Norfolk nor would challenge the quality of the food or service - they are excellent. Just feel driven to say that this place would struggle in Aylsham or North Walsham or indeed King's Lynn. It thrives here because Burnham Market is jokingly referred to as Chelsea by the Sea, it has many second homes from the capital and south east for whom the prices here will seem cheap. However, to the average Norfolk person, £30 pp is steep. What they do is a good concept, British tapas...ok that seems a paradox and indeed a curried smoked haddock scotch egg (delicious) is rather stretching uk cuisine. All the dishes were first class but at a minimum of £7.50 each so they should be and they reckon each person should have four dishes. OK , I'm just preparing you, if you are happy to pay top dollar for good food and service, this will suit. If you're more east than south east - be aware.

    This was our 5th visit to Socius and it never disappoints! This time there were 9 of us and a dog which we were delighted they allowed in during the day. 5 had not visited before, they too felt the food, cocktails, wine choice and staff were excellent. One of the children in the group commented that the Lamb dish was the best food they had ever tasted! We go back Friday with some friends as we want them to experience the wonderful food at Socius!

    We are staying in Burnham Market over Christmas and had a fabulous meal here last night. The ambience, service, decor and food are all excellent. We shared plenty of dishes, after cocktails, and each and everyone was delicious. Previously we had been to a Michelin restaurant in the area but this experience was much better in every way. We are within walking distance but there is plenty of parking. Will definitely visit again if we are this way again. Thank you and keep up the great work!

    My second review of Socius, and I stand by everything I said in my first review. Outstanding food, Outstanding service, Outstanding ambience. Again, my dietary needs were catered for by Natalie and Dan. Nothing is too much for them to be honest. Truly deserving of all the accolades they have earned in such a short span. I will be back ... soon!

    We were amazed to walk into a full restaurant on a Wednesday night early in December - but we left knowing exactly why it was so busy. We are lucky to eat out a lot, and although we often eat good food it can be disappointing to feel that I could have sourced and cooked the food just as well myself. Not here! The food style, combinations and presentation are all outstanding. The service is just right too - friendly and competent without being OTT. We paid £80 for two including a delicious bottle of Pinot.

    Places to eat around this coast are quite plentiful but often pretentious and pricey with wordy menus but not always great food. We came to Socius on a word of mouth recommendation for Sunday lunch; we hadn’t seen it advertised. Having visited, we too would suggest it is well worth a visit. Many others had obviously had it recommended or been before as it was full. It is a modern building next to the village’s/town’s car park which must be an asset - in summer particularly. The young staff were friendly and attentive, the restaurant light and airy and, most importantly, the roast beef and accompanying vegetables etc tasty and quite plentiful - with further vegetables if desired. I also enjoyed the house red with my meal. We didn’t have a starter but left room for the tasty desserts. I would certainly be interested in returning to Socius on a weekday to try the tapas style dishes. The only niggle from my party was the fact that the minimalist ‘hard’ surroundings seemed to amplify the noise of conversation of five or six dozen diners - and the background music was unnecessary. Bear in mind - if mobility is an issue - some tables are up stairs on a mezzanine level.

    My partner booked Socius for us both having seen glowing reviews online, and we were not disappointed! As a vegetarian I often find veggie options at many restaurants unimaginative and dull. A complete contrast to the food here. Each plate at Socius was fantastic, some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. Staff were courteous, chatty and friendly, brilliant service too. We were sat at the kitchen table which was a great touch too. Could not recommend higher, we will be returning - our only regret was that we couldn’t eat everything on the menu in one sitting!

    Visited on recommendation of a friend who’s a chef - boy was it good. Best food for miles. Imaginative inventive menu without being pretentious. Interesting combinations and generous portions. Good selection of wines and fabulous staff. Great value for money too. Would highly recommend and will definitely return when next in Burnham Market
