The food in Bishops is always incredible! I have been here several times, for special occasions,(and a few times for a glass of prosecco, but not a meal) and it has not yet disappointed...I find the staff attentive, friendly, and polite. I can't understand why some people have found the owner rude? Cultural differences, maybe? He is always unfailingly polite,... More

Our favourite restaurant. We were joined by family and friends for a superb lunch. Alex's dry martini cocktails are exemplary. All courses were delicious and perfectly timed. Cannot recommend this Norwich institution highly enough. You will not be disappointed !

very good place but one has to book way in advance unless one bulldozes his way through like I did! My apologies to the owner I am not always like that - really. ;-) Honestly the owner was extremely accommodating, food superb, staff was paying attention to every details...had a great time.

We were in a party of seven visiting Norwich and were informed that this restaurant was very good. I must admit that this venue was one of the best I have ever visited. The service was top drawer and so was the food. Although some of the starters were not my type of food, others in the party thought it... More

Bishops is quite small holding just over 20 when full. However this makes for an intimate and very personal experience. It is quite pricey but then it is fine dining. There was no A La Carte but a selection of around 6 choices from each course. The service was excellent and was matched by the tasty food served up. A... More

We came across the restaurant without having first looked at reviews. It was a pleasure. The small dining room was pleasant, the waiter attentive and the food good. I'll start with the mains. I had the duck leg, my husband the supreme of chicken. They were expertly cooked and came with nice accompaniments. I would have preferred a few boiled... More

Myself,husband, Aunt and uncle visited Bishops last week for an Italian themed evening. What a success. The owner, Alex is the perfect host, the staff are professional and absolutely nothing is too much trouble. The food is stunning and presented beautifully. The decor looks French chic with lots of pretty candles. There was a lovely atmosphere. Looking forward to returning... More

We were a party of six ladies and had a lovely meal at Bishops, the food and waitressing staff were fantastic! Unfortunately as we were presented with the bill the owner came to our table and told us that we had been too loud and a couple had complained, firstly I would like to apologise if we did upset any...
