A charming little hide away in the heart of Norwich. Good food and good customer service. Would go back.

Visited for my wife's birthday and as usual enjoyed a very pleasant meal in nice peaceful surroundings with good but unobtrusive service. Good selection of beers and wines and lunch menu varied with 'something for everyone' at a very affordable price.

We went for a family celebration on a Saturday evening. The atmosphere was good and the service unhurried, although I was disappointed with the menu options. A big positive is that the chef will adapt any menu option to be gluten free. My starter - pigeon breast wellington - was outstanding. The main course of seared tuna steak was mixed... More

Having called by on a summer Sunday and engaged in a long encouraging chat with the proprietress about her fresh fish deliveries, we stopped by tonight and after looking at the menu displayed outside which indicated seabass and seafood main, we decided to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary here. Once seated we were given a much more limited menu which... More

Conveniently located near the marketplace through an archway and an outside courtyard eating area and down some stairs. We regularly visit for lunch on a Saturday, it is popular and we have been disappointed when it is too full to take us. Extensive menu ranging from lite bites to full 3 course meals, something for everyone in my opinion. We... More

This place certainly deserves the five stars that I have given it. Called in for a family lunch and was not disappointed. Lovely friendly welcome from the staff, delicious food and a great place to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. I am already planning a return visit.

This is a great restaurant to spend time with friends. It has a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. There is a comprehensive wine menu and also drinks to order from the bar. We are vegetarians and I have to say, that the vegetarian food we were served here was "out of this world" - so delicious! it was not our intention... More

Whilst on short shopping break in Norwich found this little place on Guildhall Hill just by the market area, set back from the road through an archway. A little gem, good range of wines and beers all at reasonable prices and the lunch menu was superb with a great variety of full plated dishes. If your looking for quick food... More

What a lovely find. Excellent food, service & ambience. Best lambs liver & bacon ever & my wife loved her spicy lamb burger. Very reasonable wines & an overall 1st class lunch. Hope I haven't over done it but we love our experience here.

Definitely worth a visit if you're in Norwich at lunch time. Lovely food every time in a relaxed environment. Personal favourite is the steak ciabatta, served with amazing chips and mustardy coleslaw!
