We had my husband's company Christmas dinner here (14 people in total & in the upstairs private dining room which was lovely) and the food & service was both incredible. Benedicts are a step ahead of the other restaurants in Norwich, and I have to make a special mention about the staff as they are always brilliant - clearly they... More

We were fortunate to be taken to this outstanding restaurant for lunch today, where we were able to sample an excellent early Christmas lunch! The Christmas pudding ice cream was sprinkled with fairy dust, as was the whole meal. The staff were friendly and helpful, even finding the recipe for the Brussel sprouts! Truly memorable and excellent value.

Had dinner here with a client and friend last night. The food was truly outstanding. Salmon starter was the best salmon I've ever had and I had Hake for Mains which was superb. I'm a real red meat fan usually but this was superb. Friendly approachable staff. Not at all stuffy. Not cheap but worth it. Not outrageous though either.... More

I am new to Norwich so was really just going off TripAdvisor when looking for somewhere to take my boyfriend for a surprise birthday lunch. Liked the look of the menu online and seemed like reasonable prices considering the reviews and knowing Richard Bainbridge off the telly. We had the set lunch menu - chamomile roasted carrot, lamb with cabbage... More

My husband and I decided to go for the mid range menu at lunchtime. Absolutely amazing. We could not fault the food or service. The restaurant was buzzing. I can honestly say that we will be going back with friends who are food snobs and will definitely love this place. If you get the chance go.

Yes. We decided upon the Great British Taster menu that was fantastic with an abundance of tastes and textures that teased and rewarded the palate. Even before you actually get to the menu you are served appetisers and canapés that portray the pleasures that are to follow. Several of the dishes are served in quite steep sided bowls that encourage... More

Great food and wine at a reasonable price.The Jerusalem artichoke terrine was just divine and the treacle tart and egg nog ice cream was just as good well worth the trip

The food is in my opinion Michelin starred quality, though without the price tag (at around £125 for 3 courses with wine), though there are also tasting menus/wine pairings. The tasters between courses were excellent, and the presentation & service all top quality. It's also got a nice, relaxed, laid back feel. I couldn't recommend it highly enough for either... More

Amazing food. We had the Great British Menu Tasting Menu with wines. The food was fantastic. There were some really clever and special courses including a superb monkfish course and a lovely quail main. The restaurant is simply decorated but felt really comfortable and relaxing. The staff were friendly and attentive. Overall a wonderful evening, can't be long before it's... More
