We visited Bishops for my husband's birthday dinner, and every mouthful was incredible. From the welcome drink to the brilliant service and the birthday candle in his cake, it was an excellent evening from start to finish. The wine list is all delicious and well priced. We went for the three course menu, which was not too much more expensive... More

Bishops is an absolutely charming little restaurant in the heart of Norwich, the interior is beautifully decorated and Alex the owner is an excellent host. The food is always of the highest standard catering for meat, fish and vegetarians. The lunch menu is exceptional value,probably the best in the city. I really cannot fault this place

A really special experience in this small, characterful fine dining restaurant. The menu changes regularly. The dishes are designed by people with taste and care. There are enough of them to make selection quite tricky because all of the dishes sound wonderful, yet not too extensive to make it a burden for the chefs, so everything is freshly cooked to...

Visited again for lunch with friends. Warm welcome.... Highly professional. Served with drinks at the small bar before being given menus. Having chosen our dishes, we were then shown to out table in the restaurant, perfectly laid with white tablecloth and napkins. Food was absolutely delicious, beautifully presented and served. Staff are attentive without being intrusive. A thoroughly enjoyable time...... More

Alex and his team offer great hospitality and the menu is always varied with plenty of options for both meat eaters and vegetarians. Have visited for both business and pleasure and every time has been exceptional. The... More

as we somehow just never got round to visiting Bishop's having a couple of favoured fine dining restaurants in the area. Bishop's, by way of menus, staff and ambience justifiably joins our list. The small bar area on arrival is very pleasant with a good selection of aperitifs, the owner Alex and his staff being most welcoming. A menu to... More

An Italian style restaurant which serves game, couldn't be much better as far as I am concerned. Had the Pan fried pigeon breast followed by the Roast pheasant breast and then the Sticky pecan & walnut tart. All very well cooked and presented the pigeon breast was very tender and pretty much perfect. The staff were great and the place... More

Very welcoming intimate atmosphere, with quiet attentive service. Good quality food and presentation. If I were to be slightly critical being a desert fanatic I felt this part of the menu was not very inventive or original.

We'd been saying that we must visit Bishop's for ages so took the chance of friends' celebrations to finally book. Fabulous surroundings, attentive staff and good menu. Our only comment would be that the vegetarian choices were very limited - in fact, the only veggie starter was beetroot based, as was the one and only main. Not really thought that... More
