It was my wife's 60th birthday treat, and a treat is exactly what it was thanks to great company, and the staff of bishops who made us feel like royalty. The food was amazing, and the attention to detail from the staff was faultless. I had a few surprises in store for my wife and the staff helped to make... More

An old friend we hadn't seen for 20 years was visiting Norwich on business and asked us to recommend a restaurant. Needless to say, Bishops was the only choice. A magnificent meal, and as always Alessandro and his team made everything run like clockwork. Pigeon breast and loin of lamb the standout dishes!

....and what a treat it was! Once again I can express my praise for a wonderful evening. From start to finish it felt special - the meal was excellent especially the lamb which was melt in the mouth; the vegetables just right with a 'good bite' to them and I am dying to know how to make the nettle &...

I have wanted to try this restaurant for a long while and just haven't got around to it. A friend came to Norwich, so I booked it. Food was lovely, served on really good plates, I had asparagus and my friend had Cromer crab ,if I was being picky the poached egg was under done but was presented beautifully .... More

We had been looking forward to dinner at Bishop's but all in all it was not a good experience. The waiting staff were something else! We ordered a bottle of 2013 sauvignon blanc which arrived hardly chilled and which the waitress could not open – she eventually went away and returned a few minutes later with cork removed. The bottle... More

We enjoyed another lovely meal at Bishop's, for our Wedding Anniversary. The small elegantly furnished dining room sets the scene for the dining experience. The food and service were excellent and we can highly recommend Bishop's for a great evening out.

Our first time here and it will not be our last! What a great place and the food is some of the best we have had in Norwich. Very friendly and attentive service and very reasonably price for the quality you are getting.

My husband and I went to Bishop's last night for a belated birthday treat for me, we were looking forward to it as we had heard very good reports of it. Our table was booked for 8pm and upon arrival we were shown to a rather small table tucked away in a corner which rocked about on the floor and... More

An exceptional evening, delicious food and Alex and his attentive waitresses always around to pour wine etc. Saw at least three tables reset for second bookings, a good indication of how popular this restaurant is. My personal favourites, lamb fillet as a starter, with a lovely salad, followed by sea trout, then passion fruit creme with delicious "accessories". Perfect espresso... More
