Reviewed August 25, 2014

Excellent cooking of the highest order. Sympathetic staff who know how to listen when something isn't quite right. Good atmosphere. Considering the quality of the food fair value for money.

“One of the best Norwich restaurants”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 via mobile

Of the restaurants that I have eaten at in a Norwich this comes close to the top of the tree. I have visited on numerous occasions & Mr Hickman continues to serve up very good quality courses with panache. I look forward to my next trip.

“Good but pricey.”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

We went on a busy Friday night. This is the second time that we have been to this pleasant local restaurant - it is obviously a popular place as all the tables were taken. We enjoyed our food but thought it was a tad on the expensive side. My husband does not like his lamb pink, we asked for it to be well done and had a sharp intake of breath from the waiter who quibbled with this. A compromise was attained but surely the customer is right.......anyway, apart from this hiccough the service was friendly and not too over bearing.

“Amazing”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

Went last night for a celebratory meal. It's a nice enough little restaurant tucked away in the city centre. Made a reservation via phone and spoke to a lovely woman who confirmed our table. For a midweek sitting, the restaurant was about 75% full. It's not particularly modern or cutting edge but it's nice and not "old". Ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings. The food was amazing, all the dishes are excellent with two being incredible. Dishes were explained simply as were the wine pairings, which is a good thing-straight to the point. The service was fantastic, polite, friendly and totally unobtrusive. Very good value for money at £100 per head...you pay at least double in London. Their a la carte is also very reasonable for a restaurant of this calibre. Will most definitely return and cannot praise this place enough. The waitress did say that weekend bookings have a two week wait at the moment.

“Superb lunch beautifully presented”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

Although we only had an hour to spare we thoroughly enjoyed everything about this restaurant - the service, the subtle flavours of the food, the portion` size and the overall ambiance. From the extremely tasty watermelon amuse bouche, to the crab salad and onto the sea trout - which really lived up to the description of salmon/trout - all was excellent. My wife and colleagues praised the tomato salad and beef carpaccio, so altogether all was well - very well!
