The shop is laid out is a quaint yester-year meets the modern world style and is just crammed full of many interesting and exciting meal time accompaniments. There is also a nice look at the Colman's story and how it worked within the City in years gone by to make it the brand name remembered when it comes to mustard.... More

Mustard must rate along side marmite in the fact that you either love,or loathe it. So to visit a place dedicated to the bright yellow material is novel in itself. Anyone who has seen the local football side take to the pitch cannot fail to note that they are decked out in the brightest of colours,and one of those is... More

More a shop to sell mustard in all its many forms. This it does well enough. The education part is very limited and if you go expecting the full museum experience you will be disappointed. If you've got half an hour spare then it will fit nicely.

This is not a museum, it's a shop with a few display cabinets and som historical information displayed with some old colemans tins. If you love colemans mustard it's worth a trip to see all the different things on sale but this is not a museum!

I had no idea there were so many varieties of mustard - tasting pots available, so try before you buy. A good selection of other gift products available too.

As the shop name suggests there's lots of coleman's mustard here. Have struggled to find suitable gifts for mustard lvoing friends except around christmas time. Fair bit of history on the company in the shop.

We noticed this interesting little shop whilst admiring the architecture of the Arcade. We popped in to find out more. A potted history is displayed on photo boards around this ground floor shop, interwoven with a surprising range of mustardy products. I was tempted by the mustard chocolate, taken down memory lane by the cruet sets and intrigued by some... More

Having visited Coleman's Mustard Shop and Museum on previous visits to Norwich, on this occasion I found it lacking in variety of products to purchase. There were gifts and products to purchase, however there appeared to be display areas that were now covered with boards that had previously been filled with products to purchase. Having seen the shop previously, we... More
