to celebrate my wife's birthday at our favourite restaurant. Alessandro, his charming waitress and highly talented chefs produce a wonderful ambience and superlative food. The soup of the day was an unusual gazpacho, avocado based rather than tomato and very refreshing. Confit duck and salmon followed for the main courses, then Eton mess and Summer fruit pudding. It has to... More

After passing this little place about 100 times, my boyfriend booked us a table. A small venue (which made me love it even more), which was immaculate. We were the only two diners and we were waited on like royalty. I almost felt out of place it was so posh however, the bar manager who waited on our table made... More

Had a lovely evening, food was excellent, the decor was very nice with a pleasant atmosphere. The only points I would pick up on are the fact that waitresses I feel should be dressed uniformly and there should be more of a dress code for customers in line with the surroundings. As it is the restaurant seems not to have... More

This is one of this restaurants where it's about simple ingredients used really well. Rather than trying to have lots of choice on the menu it concentrates on 3 or 4 starters, main courses and deserts. The wine choice is large with even the cheapest being excellent. Service is very welcoming and efficient.

We went out for our anniversary and this place was perfect, the atmosphere was very classy but relaxed, the welcome at the bar was very pleasant but the food was incredible and for £35 for three courses it's a bargain! Quite simply if you're looking for a good dining experience go here.

From the moment we walked in you just couldn't find fault with this perfectly run little restaurant. Not bank breaking expensive either for fine dining. The service was impeccable, the owner was delightful and the food was superb. We loved it and can't wait to go back. Decor was also right up my street. Gorgeous little place.

Another superb lunch. We have a visitor from Serbia and wanted to show the sights of Norwich and have a nice lunch. Bishops never disappoints and the owner Alessandro soon made our guest feel at home. Goats cheese tart followed by duck and summer pudding was a great hit with our guest. Thank you for another great lunch, see you... More

A real gem . Superb lunch for 2. Perched at the bar away from a business lunch (and it's likely tedious soundtrack) we had excellent seafood starters, duck and salmon main courses and cheesecake and cheese board . For £17.95. All served by the very friendly and affable Alex ( Alessandro) . A real find. We'll be back on our... More

Took my boyfriend for his birthday and had the lunch menu which was exceptionally good value for money with some beautiful dishes that we both loved. I always thought it looked quiet and subdued from passing but was pleased to find the shabby chic decor, subtle tunes and bustling atmosphere on a busy Saturday made it a lovely birthday experience....
