Anniversary lunch

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

Small dining room with good food and great service. The front of house team were very professional in a relaxed informal way, we felt they cared that we had a lovely experience, which we did due to their attention and obvious passion for service, match this with a well chosen and well cooked menu and you get a restaurant that...

I took a lovely lady for a second date to Bishops and it was the right choice. We arrived a little early and excellent host Alex explained that our table was running a little late as the previous diners had not vacated the table. Rather than rush them, he poured us both a large complimentary glass of wine and we... More

We were given a voucher for Bishops as a Christmas present, and found a Warm welcome, beautifully decorated, quieter then we thought it would be for a Saturday lunch time so not much atmosphere. Limited menu but all cooked and presented fabulously. Would recommend but we wouldn't personally return as the we struggled to find anything we both really liked... More

Lovely little restaurant, excellent lunch menu at a reasonable price. Lovely service. Will definitely go back when we are in the area. Important to book as only small.

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
