Great atmosphere and warm welcome from owner. Food and wine excellent for lunch or dinner. Great place for business lunch or couples. Should have a Michelin star, I love this place! Very good value.

We booked for pre theatre and because of time just had 2 courses, main & dessert. Very pretty dining room preceeded by a small wine bar where we supped a proffered aperitif whilst browsing the menu. Attentive but not intrusive host. Food perfect.

Top class ! After an exhaustive shopping trip, Bishops was the perfect antidote. The best venue in Norwich for lunch or dinner!

We chose Guinea fowl, toasted Walnuts gorgeous garlic Croutons with Pomegranate... More

My partner rang on the day and managed to get us a table at 9pm. We arrived and were seated at the bar and given menus both food and drink. The wine menu is extensive and a very good variety to choose from. Once our orders were taken we were given a short while to wait before being taken to... More

I booked this restaurant online, and confirmed with a phone call as I had a Gourmet Card (or more specifically my gourmet card was attached to my NUS card). All fine. Got there, it was a small but very well presented place, nice large tables and spacious. It was a midweek night, so not particularly busy, which was nice from... More

Had booked a table for a reunion with a small group of friends at lunchtime. The set menu was really good value with delicious, interesting food at a reasonable price. Most importantly, we didn't feel rushed and were able to enjoy a leisurely catch up. Will definitely be back.

We went here after work for dinner. what a gem. I walk past this place everyday and have only been in once. Well that will change. Pork belly was amazing. Wine was good. Service was great.
