My lady friend and I have dined here a few times in the recent weeks; and we brought a couple of friends with us to sample the 'French wine evening' on Wednesday 10th September 2014. What a wonderful evening we had ... the wine flowed; and the food served was lovely ... and Alex and Jerome (the wine supplier based... More

Having had some bad experiences with Norwich eateries & not really knowing where to go we, by luck, found Bishops the menu looked good (for lunching in Norwich) but we got inside seated and were very pleasantly surprised. The dining room is not large but the tables are not too close so it is comfortable. Pleasnt music - what a... More

I took my God Daughter out to Lunch at Bishops. I had been four times before. With a glass of Champagne on arrival in the prettiest of restaurants, with the charming Italian proprietor.The lunchtime menu is more simple than the evening but scrumptious. Francesca and I had smoked duck Rillettes, for main course Francesca had Chicken Chasseur and I had... More

Booked a lunchtime birthday treat. A friendly welcome and well presented room of tables. It looked lovely. The menu was limited but all four of us found acceptable choices easily. The wine was excellent. We had the Rioja. Service was discreet, friendly and with a lovely touch of humour. The food was great and the presentation was enticing. Lovely subtle... More

We stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant quite by chance, and had a delightful lunch there. Each course of the 'set menu' was beautifully cooked and presented and we loved the laid back atmosphere and ambience of the place. We are already planning our next visit and would certainly recommend it to friends and family.

Booked for an anniversary dinner and was not disappointed. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere - loved the chic muted decor. I found the staff to be attentive but not annoyingly so, and knowledgeable about the food and drinks on offer. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. My starter of red mullet with tiny ratatouille was a little too chilled, as... More

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
