A bit of a let down and a missed opportunity. A very old and special building and from the exterior brilliant. I stepped inside expecting a sort of museum with information about its history. I was stunned to find it was a coffee shop serving probably very nice lunches and cakes. Very disappointed and a bit perplexed. There are upteen... More

The café in the guildhall is excellent. A chance to have tea in a Victorian court with a lot of the original furniture. The chocolate treats are great, the staff friendly. I suspect the locals want to keep this one to themselves.

If you like historical buildings then add this to your list when visiting Norwich. Depending on the time of day for your visit you can also enjoy morning coffee, a light lunch or afternoon tea here served to you by a freindly staff.

Stumbled upon this place by accident, trying to get out of the cold! The tearoom is in the main body of the Guildhall and it is a very pleasant environment. My daughter and I each had a jacket potato and they were excellent - delicious and very filling. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the surroundings were very... More
