“Great find !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Went into the Wine Cellar Thursday lunchtime as we had met friends in Norwich and I had tried to ring a couple of restaurants but they were closed, and I am so pleased they were, this is a great place to eat - what a find - warm and welcoming staff - efficient - food good value and well presented, I will be going back and try this one evening. A most enjoyable lunch.

“You Need To Book”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

We have been going regulary since our first visit at the begining of this year. It has now become so popular I would recomend booking as we now do. We were unable to get in a couple of lunchtimes and could not find anywhere better. We just hope it maintains quality.

“Group Night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

We had a group of 14 people all together from work for a good night out. The atmosphere and the decor is very nice with most tables filled, we arrived about 8pm ready to eat for 8:30 although a few were running late most of the orders were in by 8:40. The starters didn't arrive until 9:30 and most people were starving by then but the food for most was very good although a few people didn't like the soup starter. I had prawns and escalopes and they were very nice. Main meal was steak for me (ribeye as they had sold out of sirlion!!) which was very nice although the chips were not there usual handcut chips they were frozen chips. Although I appear to be knocking a few things the overall experience was very good and I would go back again.
We have ate here during the day and the prices compared between the day and evening seem to be a little higher but not by much.

“A hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Wow what a pleasant surprise. Never been before but would certainly go back! Good lovely food, lots of choice and all of high quality. Not that badly priced either which is a bonus. Cute underground restaurant! Looking forward to going back

“Absolutely Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Popped in to this little hidden gem in Norwich city centre for a pre-cinema spot of lunch. Luckily, a table became available straight away. It was jam packed which indicated a popular venue. I opted for the spiced lamb burger which was a ample size, accompanied with hand cut chips and home made colslaw which was absolutely delicious. The wine selection, as one would expect, was varied and the service was spot on. Well done! Was so impressed, I've booked in advance for my birthday celebration in a couple of months.
ps. The chocolate torte was mmmmmmm :)
