Had a canine in our party so sat outside and although promised no one ever appeared. A second attempt resulted in a rude manager telling us his staff were all busy. When asked if he could take our order he replied, I am not a waiter. Simple example of a chain gone bad....shame menu and food looked nice! Delia should... More

I've eaten here twice and have decided it's all about the name. The food is overpriced and the flavour doesn't live up to the hype. Great atmosphere, lovely decor and the waitress on the second occasion was superb, unlike her colleague the first time I went.

Attentive staff were first class and the atmosphere relaxed but most importantly the food was not only very good but excellent value.

My husband has a Jamie's Gold Card so we regularly pop in for a meal when we're shopping in Norwich. On this occasion we were greeted by the Receptionist with 'You can have a table but you can only have it until 19.50 (about an hour and forty minutes) which is usually plenty of time for us to eat our...

I wanted to go to a restaurant where you didn't shave to put masses if effort to get dressed up but felt special (spontaneous meal so wasn't prepared) so plumped for Jamie's. The restaurant is in the Royal Arcade right in the city centre so easy to find and over two floors. The arcade is a nice up market part... More

I've been here numerous times and always like to try different dishes. I am always impressed how the prices are very reasonable yet the food is great. I am happy to travel 40 mins to eat here and take a look around the shops

Had it not been for clear lack of staff, I would have given 5 stars as the food was lovely and good value for money. I hadn't been before so asked about my gold card being used that got me £10 off, the lady said she'd swipe it and £10 would be deducted from our bill, she said I'd also... More
