Very nice ambience to the place, and the food is lovely and locally sourced. We ate from a set lunch menu, which whilst filling was not quite the normal portion size, I would imagine. Very friendly host in Alex.

My first visit to this restaurant, following a recommendation, and I was delighted. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, fresh and bright. The service was excellent and Alex was charming. The salmon with watercress veloute and rice was delicious but ohhhh, the chocolate and orange mousse... pure heaven! A cheeky glass of lovely Prosecco completed a delightful lunch. Really looking forward to... More

We went here as a party of three last night and thought that it easily lived up to its enviable reputation. The food was exquisite and beautifully presented, and the team serving us could not have been more courteous and helpful. It's expensive, but not excessively so, and the experience makes the outlay worthwhile. We would happily go again. Norwich... More

We chose Bishop's for a special anniversary meal, and the whole experience was lovely. The restaurant is quite small and intimate, but didn't seem squashed. The decor is light and sophisticated, the service attentive but unfussy. Both my wife and I felt the menu was well balanced and the food fresh and delicious. I have been lucky enough to eat... More

This was our second visit to enjoy the spring menu. As always, faultless service from Alex and his team, especially as the restaurant was very busy for lunchtime service. At the risk of boring reviewers, will mention three outstanding courses. The game terrine, a perfect combination of moist and flavoursome meat. The gratin of fish and shellfish, perfectly cooked. The... More

I have wanted to eat here for ages and my patience was rewarded. The food was beautiful and the service friendly and unhurried. Can't wait to return.

This is a classic style restaurant ,with good food.. I am a vegetarian and found a couple of dishes on the menu. The food was tasty and nicely presented. There aren't many tables, so it feels comfortable..The wine list was extensive, and well served. The waiter was courteous and knowledgable....An enjoyable lunch. We felt, it was a business men,s lunch... More
