We loved this place but: Davina the Dragon got her mitts on it and closed it, undoing all the excellent work put in by the now defunct Norwich Heart.

The shop is really bright and lovely with little old fashioned treasures and just a little present to bring back for friends and family after your holiday.

Unlike the press on this place it's a shop pure and simple and nothing else. Was not impressed to say the least

Shop and museum? Well, in truth far more shop than museum. All manner of mustardy products but who needs that much mustard? Excellent range of cakes at sensible prices but could be more interesting.

Situated in the Royal Arcade, this shop is worth popping in for a look around. It has an artisan feel about it with non-mainstream food and other items for sale. The tag 'museum' is overselling it somewhat, there is some Coleman's history on banners and...More

With Christmas shortly approaching - ideal place to go to get Christmas presents with a difference. Having a step son who likes mustard - this shop has valuable source of items consumable and non-consumable.
