    From the moment we arrived we were treated like family in a place that is so friendly and welcoming. The food is fantastic and the accompanying drinks are well matched to the food. The staff are so friendly all the while you are there. A big thank you to all there and we feel this is our favourite place to eat drink and relax.

    Great service all the way through and the food was mostly excellent. I was a bit disappointed with the blue cheese soufflé starter, it felt a little under flavoured and quite small. Also, the peach desert lacked some textural layers, It tasted great but needed another aspect to it. This will not stop me returning to an otherwise excellent restaurant though. The place is perfect for any occasion and I would always highly recommend it.

    We love Bishops, it is a beautiful little restaurant up a side street in Norwich - a true hidden gem. The food is normally wonderful (one of our top dinner choices in Norfolk), although this last visit we found all of the food to be vastly over salted which was a little disappointing. We hope to visit again and soon and hope the food will be back to how we know it to be!

    Lovely restaurant serving delicious, imaginative food. Two of us are vegan; the vegan saffron risotto was sooooo good - could have eaten a whole pan of it! One of the tastiest risottos I have ever had and the other courses very good too. We'll definitely be going back!

    Always eat here when we can. The food, the staff and the atmosphere are second to none. I much prefer this intimate environment and attentive service to larger places. I’ve eaten here many times and every time it has been perfect. The owner will retire soon so don’t miss out and try this place as soon as you can. You won’t regret it.
