A great evening out with friends just before Christmas and possibly our new favourite restaurant in Norwich. Under £35 for 3 courses and a modestly priced selection of good wine. Who can argue. This was our second visit to Bishop's and as before the service was attentive but not intrusive. Would certainly recommend a visit.

A few work colleagues met here for a leaving lunch for one of us. Nice, intimate atmosphere, impeccable service and quality bistro style food.

A warm welcome on a wet night set the tone for the evening. The food was presented beautifully and tasted equally delicious. The wine was great too, glasses topped up unobtrusively by lovely waiting staff. The the menu wasn't massive, however the food was cooked well. Would definitely visit again if in Norwich

Lunch in Norwich. Great hosting by Alessandro, excellent service by Imogen and her brother, and the usual superlative output by the chefs. As a family party of four, all courses were relished, my highlight was the ham, egg and chips, perfectly seasoned and delicious. No need for condiments on the table at this restaurant. A good example of Bishops reinventing... More

we visited this lovely little restaurant during a weekend in Norwich, and what a find it was. The welcome when we entered set us up for a fabulous evening. The waiting staff were attentive, and really helpful. However, the best bit was the delicious food we had. I would definitely recommend this place, and will most certainly be returning,

It's been a little while since our last visit to Bishops. Everything was as we remembered it. Proficient staff, as to be expected in one of the top-end restaurants in Norwich. A menu short enough for one to have confidence that the chef has chosen the dishes carefully. The food when it came was cooked to perfection - I'd gone... More

We love to visit Bishop's when we visit our friends in Norwich. Alex always has a warm welcome for us and although we may not have visited for a year he remembers us too. His sense of humour is just right and the service is excellent. The food is exquisite and although more expensive than other places we don't mind... More

Went here for lunch and it's been a while since we went last. The food and service were excellent. Given the quality the food and drink were very good value.

Very disappointed by the taste of the food. The price is rather expensive, the restaurant looks nice from outside (nice table, nice silverware, cosy), but the food is terrible. It's my worst experience in Norwich in terms of food quality. The plates are well presented, but when you start eating, you immediately understand that there standards poor. The different flavors...

So I visited here with my good friend who is very much a foodie; we heard that the food was up our street and was an acceptable place to dine in Norwich with the type of cuisine we were looking for... We were unsuccessful the first time we tried to dine; I can see why you would need to book... More
