Wilson, who owns Byfords Café and the King's Head pub in Norfolk's Holt, said:

"We are delighted to have this opportunity to bring our expertise to the city centre. The Assembly House is a beautiful, historic building which boasts a great reputation we plan to build on be enhancing the overall offering."
