Where once the mercantile wheels of a wealthy port turned in a nineteenth-century banking hall, things are looking a little more alluring. With a nod to its illustrious past as Massey & Co, one of England's foremost provincial banks, this old icon of commerce is reborn as a place for altogether more pleasurable pastimes. As much a part of King's Lynn life as it ever was, Massey & Co now echoes with the clinking of glasses and the energy of animated conversation. A welcome new addition to West Norfolk's social scene, it's a place to meet, eat and drink in the atmosphere of a true one-off.
You'll smile at the throwbacks to the building's banking days - from the framed antique coinage to the 'old money' menus for added authenticity, but today's Massey & Co is very much a showcase for all that's new and fresh in locally sourced, lovingly prepared food and drink. Drop in for coffee from Suffolk-based Paddy & Scott's, nibble on a Norfolk sharing plate, settle in for a leisurely lunch or meet friends for drinks as day turns to evening and the decadent art deco bar beckons.
The life and soul of King’s Lynn’s Tuesday Market Place is alive and well - any day of the week.
