Best place in Norwich for Sunday breakfast. Freshly prepared with tasty ingredients. Cosy indoors & even cosier garden. Friendly staff. Real ale available.

Read the blurb on their website so was expecting great things but was very disappointed. Staff weren't overly friendly, attentive or efficient. Food at best was average, I had steak, which was ok. Unfortunately, my wife had the salmon carpaccio and found it completely tasteless. Needless to say, I didn't leave a tip!

I've always walked past this place and thought it looked awesome with all the teapots in the window. So me and my family went for a meal when they came to visit. It was late and we hadn't made any bookings so the wait was rather long but the staff were so friendly and the atmosphere was great to sit... More

a better place to have coffee than retail cafe. Love the backyard there. If there can big a larger outside table place, it will be much better

We stopped off for a quick breakfast after staying the night in Norwich and found this place online. When we arrived at 10am there was a queue outside the door which was a good sign, we got seated quickly and was very nice inside. Nice atmosphere and the food was good. Would return.

I do love Frank's Bar and have visited the place several times for several different reasons. I have visited late night purely for drinks and good chat with friends. Frank's bar really does have have some lovely drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). The 'Hot Toddy' sticks in my mind as a lovely alcoholic winter-warmer cocktail. I have visited with friends...

I love Franks and went last week for a delicious vegetarian breakfast which we ate in the courtyard outside. Food is always good and there's a lovely relaxed atmosphere .

Frank’s Bar is a cafe-bar in central Norwich. We have filled our bar with good food, top drinks, marvelous music and general chilled-outness. We’re happy for you to enjoy Frank’s Bar in a range of different ways, whether it be with a coffee, glass of wine, tasty meal, or cheeky nibbles we’re really quite flexible. We like to make Sunday’s special as well by offering a fantastic Sunday Breakfast menu (served from 11.00 - 6.00) and a classic afternoon film (screened in the back room) along with the usual selection of great coffee, good papers to peruse and general loveliness.
