Not our first trip to the wine cellar and certainly won't be our last! One of Norwich olden gems. Such a lovely old building that gives the bar so much character. Very comfortable bar with lots of drinks on offer. The 60th was set further into the cellar though the back where an almost private room was offered and live... More

My wife and I have lunched at The Wine Cellar many times before and expect to do so many times again because we like the menu, the wine list, the central location and the general ambience. We make short visits to Norwich fairly frequently and want a light lunch soon after we arrive so The Wine Cellar suits us perfectly.... More

Came here with my partner for Valentine's Day. The food was absolutely stunning and brilliant for the price. The wine was also really good and great value. We shared a bottle of the porcupine which was delicious. The venue is really unique but the lights were too bright which spoiled the atmosphere somewhat. Would highly recommend.

My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant for an early Valentines celebration, and it was absolutely perfect. The food and drink were of an exceptionally high standard, and the prices of everything were very reasonable. The service was also top notch (shout-out to Cathy!). Me and my girlfriend will definitely be returning for future date nights, and I would highly... More

Beautiful cellar bar with restaurant. Generously spaced tables; polite, engaging and efficient service; reasonable prices; excellent food. This is a place I'd take someone to make them feel they were being made a fuss of. Very pleasant. Lunchtime main courses priced from about £8 to £11. Very enjoyable. Thanks to all the staff who gave us a rather lovely time.

Booked into the wine cellar for pre theatre dinner and was not disappointed. The food was first class. I had the liver, mash and vegetables and it couldn't be better. Very tender and plenty of it. I followed that with a gingerbread fruit desert which was also delicious. Everything was just perfect. Excellent staff who looked after us very well.... More

Visited Sunday 28th February 2017 not having booked, and had an excellent lunch in the bar of this attractive place. They have three beers on pump along with the usual selection of lagers. You enter through a courtyard seating area, down the steps and into a large informal bar. There is restaurant area at the back. We were warmly welcomed,... More
