Nuns from a convent in Swaffham have launched a pop-up restaurant in London.

The women from the Daughters of Divine Charity in the town served free chicken or lentil soup at the eatery in the capital which was called NUNdos.

To avoid the distractions of social media while in the restaurant, diners where encouraged to leave their phones in a bin before they entered.

For dessert the nuns served a takeaway treat as a reminder to diners to nourish the soul beyond the walls of NUNdos.

The three-day pop-up restaurant coincided with the launch of the new Channel 5 series Bad Habits, Holy Orders which stars the Swaffham sisters.

The programme invited a group of party girls from across the country into the convent.

They traded booze, make-up and phones for discipline, prayer and contemplation at the Norfolk convent.
