Description: Frank’s Bar is a cafe-bar in central Norwich. We have filled our bar with good food, top drinks, marvelous music and general chilled-outness. We’re happy for you to enjoy Frank’s Bar in a range of different ways, whether it be with a coffee, glass of wine, tasty meal, or cheeky nibbles we’re really quite flexible. We like to make Sunday’s special as well by offering a fantastic Sunday Breakfast menu (served from 11.00 - 6.00) and a classic afternoon film (screened in the back room) along with the usual selection of great coffee, good papers to peruse and general loveliness.

Came across this place whilst looking for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We found lovely, friendly staff and a very fine cooked breakfast, excellent coffee. Cool music, relaxed atmosphere, nothing to dislike here.

I LOVE this place. I very often drag myself here for a hungover, Sunday morning breakfast. The quality of the ingredients is above and beyond, and the European/ North African slant on the food is delicious. Would definitely recommend.

Love this place for its atmosphere, service, food and drink. Great at any time of the day and always end up staying far longer than expected for another round or two !

Having come over from France to see my mother, I was searching for somewhere a little bit special and a little bit different to eat and fell upon Frank's Bar. The atmosphere was lovely inside, cosy, relaxed and slightly bohemian. We had very pleasant and attentive service and the food was magnificent, full of wonderful flavours, cooked with fresh herbs...

We had a lovely evening of food and drinks here. It has a very relaxed feel but the food is still of a high standard. Shall look forward to returning

Norwich is a long way from anywhere so great to find such a welcoming, vibrant place to drink on a busy Friday night after a long drive. The size (8) and nature (all male) of our group was not an issue...the service was relaxed, efficient and above all excellent. We didn't eat as had already booked elsewhere but extensive drinks...

We visited on a Saturday evening, and the friendly staff informed us there was a 25 min wait for a table for 2 so we ordered a cocktail and headed out to the courtyard to wait. It was less than 20 mins before we were seated downstairs in this quirky, bohemian little place which feels so authentic and has some... More

Brilliant lunch at this quirky restaurant which never seems to disappoint. The service is always so friendly, the prices are so reasonable with generous portions and the quality of the food is outstanding. Undoubtedly one of the best if not the best lunch spots in Norwich. Avoid the chains and come here.
