GOLD CLUB OFFER.

This was not my first visit, but as a Gold Club member I was offered a 50% reduction in food for the month of July, so had to take it up ! It would obviously be churlish to criticise under those circumstances, but Jamie's is not fine dining - it is very good popular food. Unfortunately my report... read more

Family dinner with two teenagers on a wet evening in Norwich and overall, we were very disappointed. My son loved his spaghetti bolognese, however, my daughter and I chose the flash grilled steak - they both came out far too undercooked for our taste and one was so stringy, it was uncuttable (the fries were super though). My husband's super-food... More

I had a fantastic birthday lunch here as not only did we get a free bottle of Prosecco and a chocolate brownie dessert but also taster starter and half price on both main courses!

Jaime's Italian at Norwich really surprised me with its quality and flavour. I strongly recommend the mussels spaghetti nero and the turkey milanese. The first one, although kind of small for a main course plate, is extremeley well prepared, the taste is very good the combination of wine with oils and mussels can be sensed on the very pasta. In...

We went here on Saturday at lunchtime with the kids as last time we had a good meal and found it to be very child friendly. The kids were disappointed when they had run out of colouring sheets and didn't bother giving us the kids menu viewer. Why have something fun for kids if you don't bother giving them out!... More
