“Great food and good value for money.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Saturday lunch time meal for 6. Swift friendly service. Meal arrived within a reasonable time. Good presentation and really tasty. Very good pub grub and a varied menu. Will definitely eat there again and recommend. Took our dog and he was also impressed by his bowl of water and dig biscuits.

“Lovely food, pleasant ambiance.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

We visited one lunchtime, only intending to have a quick drink as we had our dog with us and Number 12 is dog friendly. But the food looked so nice we decided to eat there as well.
We were made to feel very welcome and both members of staff came over to say hello to the dog. We were asked if she needed a bowl of water. She drained it straight away so another was fetched at once.

My partner and I had the Number 12 Chill Chow. One was meat based and the other vegetarian. They were both delicious and very filling! We wouldn't hesitate to go back to Number 12 if we ever visit Norwich again.

“Bad Food & Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

I visited this weekend and my husband and I had an awful meal. When our meal finally arrived (an hour after ordering) the meat in the beef burgers tasted odd and when we mentioned this to a member of the staff we were shot down and spoken to in an appalling manor. I've never had such poor and rude service in a restaurant in my life. We were never asked as to how our meal was during our visit and offered NO apology for the poor quality of food and service. I do not usually write reviews but my husband and I were truly disgusted by this restaurant. Please avoid.

Not sure how to respond to this review? We do not recall EVER having a table wait for food for an hour? Never had a bad comment about our burgers EVER unless you are referring to the herbs and spices we put into them? All of our tables are checked as to quality of food, at my request so I am not sure how I would not have known about the food complaints and not once have we had a complaint about our staff being rude EVER?

“Best find in Norfolk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

I have been to Number 12 on many occasions and it never disappoints me or anyone I ever bring with me, whether it be a small group or large we are always well catered for and well looked after by the team in number 12!
The new menu is even better than before - and that was hard to beat!
Everyone is friendly - especially the manager who is devoted to making your visit worth while!

Great for families, romance, business, friends or even solo!
It's even dog friendly - which is a rarity in Norwich!

Not a place to miss out on!
