A new bar and restaurant has opened in Burnham Market.
Number Twenty9 opened its doors to the public on Monday in a grade II-listed Georgian building.
Diners can watch chefs prepare classic and modern dishes on a wood-fired pit in an open kitchen or book one of four private, upstairs dining rooms at the Market Place restaurant, which has an art deco-style interior.
Award-winning chef Philip Milner, who also runs Shuck’s Restaurant in Thornham, has teamed-up with Tim Roberts for the new venture.
He said: “Our menu is different, simple and tasty. Our ingredients are all sourced from local farmers.
“We offer good value. We have had a good first few days and expect a busy weekend.”
Mr Milner said he was excited to be working with Michelin-starred chef Rob Taylor.
Mr Milner and team members travelled to New York to gain first-hand experience of using some of the specialist equipment.
The new restaurant has six kitchens including one for butchery and preparation of dry, aged meat, a pastry production kitchen, fruit and vegetable kitchen and serving kitchen.
Guests can enjoy a drink in front of a log burner in the lounge bar, have a coffee, or choose from a selection of 101 rums or 640 bottles of wine stored in a temperature-controlled room.
As well as launching the new venture, Mr Milner’s team has been busy refurbishing Shuck’s which is set to re-open on Thursday.
Mr Milner also has other plans – to open a chicken and pizza business near to Shucks’s next month which he hopes will eventually offer telephone orders and a delivery service.
