We went to Bishops to celebrate my birthday and had mixed feelings about our meals. Both our fish starters were good and my steak was cooked well but not particularly tender or flavoursome. My husband had venison which was disappointing as it was quite tough. Our chocolate dessert did not live up to expectations and was well below the standard... More

My husband and I rarely venture into Norwich these days particularly for a meal but it was a pre-Christmas treat just the two of us without children! Bishop's is tastefully decorated and first impressions were good. We were offered drinks at the bar or we could go straight through to our table which is what we decided on. The waitress... More

Charming staff greet you in an elegant bar area for some pre drinks. (It would be nice to see some a little more smartly dressed though). The lovely light rooms and sparkly chandeliers make this a perfect treat for a special meal or birthday. The food is very good but not amazing. Bishops uses good ingredients, well cooked however some... More

We visited here as my stepdaughter had never experienced fine dining. She was not disappointed. Service out of this world, food delicious. The wine choices were great, even by the glass. Such a small, intimate restaurant, where you are made to feel really special & for your evening to be perfect.
