I must congratulate Alex Tranquillo and his very efficient staff ...especially to Beth. We were a party of 18 and have just celebrated a private dinner for a very special surprise birthday. The ambience, food,service and attention to detail was first class. Nothing was too much trouble for the endless requests we had and it will be remembered as a... More

Another lunchtime of wonderful food and wine, perfect location for a special lunch at a very sensible price. Alex is a great host but just don't expect to be served quickly!

Like a few other reviews I found the owner quite rude whereas the staff were very attentive. Food was mixed bag. Starters were lacking. My rib eye of beef which I requested blue struggled as it was so thin almost like French Bivette so was never going to be the bizz but have to say flavour of meat was good.... More

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
