3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2014 NEW

Twice this past 6 months (the most recent being two weeks ago) I've been to parties in the upper rooms of Farmer Browns. On both occasions, the finger food has been such a let down! Did Chef go to Iceland? Just a bunch of deep fried stuff, some chopped vegetable crudités and massive bowls of cheap dips. Bleeeurgh.

Visited recently on a Saturday night, food was superb- haven't had anything so good for a while! I had the pork belly starter and duck for main- absolutely delicious. Service was friendly and helpful. I will definitely be returning soon!

Amoungst other bits and Bob's we had the turkey tortilla wraps, meatballs, Mediterranean vegetable tart. Oh and the salmon and leek tart! wished it was bigger! Definately be back after this one.

Starters were excellent...we chose the pork belly and calamari, both served piping hot and were very good. I had the burger and my wife the risotto for our main course, they were both large portions and again very good. Service was fantastic but it is annoying not being able to add gratuity if you are paying by card ! Luckily... More

This was our first visit and we had arranged to go with friends. All in all a very lovely evening a good menu choice and the food freshly prepared and cooked which was evident in the quality and taste. We all enjoyed our meals and will return again though a bit pricey worth every penny for very tasty meal .........

Went to a relatives birthday party here and it's great. They let you have a whole floor and rooms with bar all to yourself and guests free................. One half pint of coke, one half pint of cranberry juice and a pint of lager... ready? £11.90 No wonder the room is free!

Mary C, Manager at Farmer Browns, responded to this review

Hello, My apologies, there has clearly been an error here. All of our pints cost £4, and these particular soft drinks together cost £4 as well. Therefore you should have only been charged £8 for this round - Please contact the manager immediately on 01603 628542, or via email (thefarmer@farmerbrowns.co.uk) to arrange your refund of £3.90. Kind Regards. More

We went to this restaurant because of the local home cooked produce, very dissapointed, overpriced for the quality of the dishes nad one part of the restaurant is like being in their kitchen.

Whilst visiting Norwich this summer a group of friends and I went to this restaurant. I looked on the internet and really liked the look of the menu. So, booked a table for a nice evening of good food and wine. However, our experience and evening was OK but not to the standards I was expecting. My friends ordered an... More

Visited for evening meal whilst alone on business in Norwich & staying nearby. It was a tapas evening (all you could eat for £12.95). Whitebait, chowder, meatballs, focaccia, sausage cassoulet to name a few. Reasonably sized portions, attentive and efficient service. Nice atmosphere. Had a decent Chenin blanc for £5.90, large glass. Would have been a lovely option for a... More
