We phoned up at 7.30pm on a Friday evening (which, working in hospo I really hate people doing!!) and they accommodated us a table for 2 at 9.30 which was perfect. It's a very small but well appointed place with a great selection of drinks and tapas food. I would highly recommend a visit! Staff were really friendly too xxx

My son and I were looking for somewhere to have a lunchtime snack and a drink when we came upon 42 King Street by chance. We had great cocktails (I recommend the Lemon Curd Martini) and delicious hummus and pitta bread. The prices were good too.

Great food, cocktails, staff. Definitely worth a visit if your in Norwich. Could be easily passed by due to its size, but step inside to enjoy great tapas with great selections.

Visited last night as a girls night out and had a great time. Great selection of tapas dishes which arrived piping hot and delicious. Also fabulous cocktails and service excellent without rushing us to leave the restaurant where we stayed until closing time. Throughly recommended.

From the outside this restaurant looks nothing special but step inside for some very tasty treats. No 42 is one of our most favourite restaurants, The menu changes fairly regularly with the menu choked up on a board and the choice is quite varied from curries to sausage and deck egg hash to salted squid. The only thing they have... More
