It's a central place to meet up with friends for a drink or a meal. Staff are always helpful. Food excellent quality and always hot.

Yes, the lure of The Wine Cellar struck once again. Stopped in for a glass of vino and ended up having dinner. Truly the only place to have a steak in Norwich. Have never had a mediocre meal here. A true 5* restaurant.
