Absolutely stunning! We turned up 15 minutes early but were started immediately. The waitress made us some gorgeous mocktails and the food was genuinely the best I’ve ever had! Vegan or not, everyone should go here

The food and service was great ….
Would have been nice if it was a bit more Christmassy ….
Christmas menu on the table , was difficult to read but didn’t matter as you couldn’t have one anyway as apparently need 48 hours notice ….

Gorgeous cheeseburger, service very attentive without being at the table all the time, beautiful decor, slightly cold - might be the old building with tall ceilings, could be difficult to heat.

Delicious food, and staff were very friendly and accommodating, but service was a little slow - we had to walk up to signal the waiters at one point!

This was my third time to the Norwich restaurant, and it was as good as my first. The menu choice was great. the food not only looked amazing in its presentation but tasted really good too. The service was charming and efficient. I will come back a fourth time.

All our starters and mains were fab - imaginative, beautifully presented and delicious. The mock lamb and plant pot in particular were really tasty, as were all the side dishes (onion rings, chunky chips and roasted veg).
However, the desserts were simply the worst we had ever tasted. The "raspberry sponge" was a congealed grey/brown solid brick that tasted vile and the "apple celebration" did not taste much better.
Would go again, but will definitely avoid the puds next time!

Such a lovely restaurant with beautiful decor! We had an amazing server who was so attentive and lovely towards the very chatty 18 month old we had with us. The food was absolutely amazing and we were absolutely stuffed! Would go again in a heartbeat!

Lovely setting with a relaxed ambience. Ideal for Sunday lunch if you are vegan. Easy to understand menu. My only problem is that my meal was rather dry. The nut roast crumbled. A bit more gravy might have helped.

First time going wasn’t sure what to expect as I booked it for my girlfriend as she had been before, but was pleasantly surprised at how nice the food was considering I’m not a a vegan or vegetarian. Staff were very good and welcoming and had a great experience overall would recommend. Also the chips where banging !!!

Very interesting and delicious food - good service and friendly.

Only thing I would mention is the condition of the toilet - perhaps some attention needed.

Such a charming little place. The service was slow. Took 10 mins to be offered a drink. And once given the dessert menus nobody came over for nearly 15 mins. By that point we hD no drinks and decided to leave. Food was lovely. And the charm of the place would see me visit again x

Very nicely surprised. My friend and l went for the £20 meal deal and had the smokehouse burger a drink each and desserts. I liked the burger and chunky chips, very tasty, well presented and very filling. also the Gingerella drink was very refreshing, l did keep my bottle as it had a funky label and it's good to recycle 😊
