Just back from a lovely meal at this restaurant. 3 of us had different dishes, but all 3 were very happy with the food, its presentation, and the service. Conealo, our waiter was excellent and allowed us tasters on several wines to help us make our choice. There are 2 sides to the restaurant, the left side as you come... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our first meal in Norwich at this pleasant restaurant. Although we had not booked, luckily we were there early enough to get a table (the restaurant filled up later). The menu was very good indeed and there were extra touches, such as the nicely presented warmed bread served as we waited for our meals. The service was... More

Tasty food. Great service. Really enjoyable evening. I had belly pork with a garlic croquet. Then monkfish and prawns with a sweet chilli thai sauce. Dessert was a chocolate and caramel pot with a shortbread biscuit. The only bad thing was it was too cold!

We pitched up on the doorstep of farmer browns after our original plans for lobster at just lobster across the road fell through because the lobster delivery order didn't arrive. We were welcomed with open arms by the delightful waitres. Our orders were promptly taken and courses arrived very quickly. The food was fantastic and we enjoyed every last morsel.... More

I have dined at farmers many times over the years, experiencing many different chefs, front of house and menus. This was the best experience in the last two years, the front of house were attentive and friendly. The starters, we went for a potted salmon and chicken liver pate. Both lovely and packed with flavour. For the main it was,... More

By far the most disgusting meal out I've ever had. My girlfriend and I came here a year or so ago for our three year anniversary and fortunately she didn't leave me because it was vile. We came for "tapas" night. We ordered various items off the menu that really wasn't the tapas we're used to. All the food looked... More

I apologise for the experience you had with us over a year ago, however as all members of staff (including both kitchen and management) have changed in this period, I unfortunately don't see that this review is relevant any longer to our establishment. I apologise that the previous manager did not follow this complaint up properly, and I can assure... More

I have to be honest I have never fancied eating here, however I was pleasantly surprised. Farmer Browns was featured on the Gourmet Society app, and the buy one get one free attracted us to try it. It was lunch time and was deserted with only one other couple in the restaurant however, it was Friday 2 January and the... More
