About the Employer

Options of Norton was established in 2020 and was designed as a cozy and informal eatery, serving both classic food and dishes you might not see in many other places. Our passion is for good, honest and delicious cooking, and a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere. Our menu features a selection of dishes, all made in-house by our team of talented chefs.

​Our signature offering is our fantastic selection of Tapas dishes. 

Tapas (from the Spanish verb "Tapar", meaning "to cover") originated in pre-19th Century Andalusia, where innkeepers and bar tenders would offer their sherry-drinking patrons thin slices of bread or meat to cover their drinks, guarding against marauding fruit flies.

The high salt content of the Spanish ham or chorizo would help to encourage the customers' thirst and, in turn, increase the takings behind the bar. Over time, business-savvy bar owners began to increase the variety of their offerings, and eventually Tapas became as important to the Spanish culture as the drink it originally accompanied.

​At Options we've tried, with the help of our specialist Tapas chef, to recreate some of the authentic flavours of Andalusia, right in the heart of our little English village.
