We've visited Bishop's quite a few times over the past three years and standards are still as high as ever. Service is impeccable and the food is always lovely presented, very fresh and extremely tasty. And while it certainly qualifies as fine dining, there is no chance of leaving hungry. The restaurant is small and popular so don't expect to... More

I just love this place. It's my favourite in Norwich. It's small so book early to avoid disappointment. It has a lovely atmosphere, lovely service right from the moment you walk in, it's decorated lovely, and the food is just amazing. In my opinion better you get a better over all experience than Roger Hickman's or the lavender house.

Popped in here for the first time for a Saturday lunch. The staff are helpful and pleasant. The menu is varied and the food is well presented and tasty. The restaurant is attached to a cinema club if you feel like taking in a film. A lot of history attached to this place and the staff will give you pamphletts... More

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!
