                                                  Excellent dinner. Once again it is a pleasure to be able to choose anything on the menu rather than the ubiquitous vegan burger or risotto you find in other restaurants. Fabulous.

                                                  First time in a Vegan restaurant. Food very good and good variety of unusual offerings. Staff were outstandingly good. It was a 21st birthday meal and staff provided balloons and a card and made the event special for us. I cannot speak too highly of them.

                                                  Great food exceptional service. We went with friends who both now have dietary requirements due to allergens. The team really looked after us and whilst I’m a veggie/vegan sceptic everything I had was delicious, amazing flavours, well presented and I honestly couldn’t tell I was not eating meat. I would definitely go back as it was also great value for money. Am I a convert ‘Yes’ to an extent but I still couldn’t give up on meat just yet! Try it , I’m sure you’ll be as surprised as I was if you’ve not been to non meat restaurant previously.

                                                  The house Burger was very tasty, wine a bit overpriced and the ladies greeted us with charm and did a great job throughout the evening.

                                                  The food was pretty bad, had a Bau bun that was basically solid. The Mushroom pasta was sooo strong with truffle oil and what i think was peanut powder or something that I could only eat a little before it was far too overpowering. Service was ok.

                                                  We were visiting Norwich for the night and managed to get a booking at 8.15pm. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and were happy for us to move tables to a slightly less draughty area. The food is exceptional. Every dish we tried was excellent and if we ever have a reason to visit Norwich again, we will be back to try other items on the menu. Cannot recommend highly enough

                                                  We were rather disappointed with the food we had here. All a bit stodgy and tasteless with lots of chips.

                                                  We wanted somewhere near to the Waterfront venue and Cathedral that specialised in vegetarian or vegan food. This one leapt off the page at me when I did an online search and we were not disappointed. The wine was lovely, the small snacks we had in lieu of starters were really tasty and spicy without being excessively hot, and the main courses were wonderful. We didn’t have desert as we were going to a gig but next time we are in Norwich we will definitely be trying them out. Not cheap, but then we’d have gone to All Bar One round the corner if we’d wanted cheap. The standard is exceptional and the prices merely reflect this.

                                                  We were the first lunchtime customers, the waitress was friendly but then forgot part of our starter. As the restaurant got busy, she couldn't cope as she was on her own. I wanted a second glass of wine but couldn't get her attention. In the end we paid at the counter and left to have desert and coffee elsewhere. Shame.

                                                  My friend and I had a great time at the Erpingham house! We had a quiet lunch, just us girls with some cocktails. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was AMAZING! The only downfall is that it took a while for the food to come - even in between servings. Otherwise, excellent!

                                                  Visited here as a group of one vegan, one vegetarian and a meat eater. We enjoyed everything we ordered so much - the food and presentation was absolutely incredible, the flavours were second to none and I can't recommend this place highly enough. One of my favourite restaurants I have ever been to. If nearby, definitely stop by. Lovely drinks menu too!

                                                  We had a wonderful first time at this restaurant. The food was exciting, excellent quality and beautifully presented. The toilets were disappointing as we expected the standard of cleanliness and hygiene to reflect what we saw in the restaurant. Our food was wonderful and the condition of the toilets did not distract from the experience too much.

                                                  We tried the light bites menu for lunch. Celariac & Pear soup was a revelation. Never had such s tasty bowl of soup. Smashed Pea & Feta on toast was a fresh tasting dish although a little overpowered with the chilli. Matcha latte and Lions Mane mushroom tea were light and refreshing. Good experience trying something different on the menu. Atmosphere was calm and relaxing. Service was attentive and friendly. Will be back to this restaurant again.

                                                  What a fantastic Sunday roast! And proof that you don't need to be a vegetarian or a vegan to enjoy meals at this great restaurant (my family of four are all mostly carnivores). The waiting staff were friendly and attentive, the ambience was calm and relaxing, the food was really, really good. I'm recommending Erpingham House to friends and family. Lovely place.

                                                  The starters/nibbles were great and the main courses were outstanding, but the desserts weren't very good. One of our party couldn't even eat the dessert as it was a bit strange. I would still recommend it to vegetarians or vegans in Norwich though.

                                                  Food and drink was fantastic. The service was brilliant too, I appreciated when I had a gin and tonic to be able to ask and see the gin bottle as it was very good. We came for me and my partners 3 year anniversary and it definitely made it all the better.

                                                  We visited as a family group for lunch. None of us are actually vegans but we wanted to try this restaurant as it is attractive from the outside and we like to try new things. We all enjoyed our food very much and the service was friendly and attentive. I would definitely visit here again and recommend to anyone including those who are not vegan who like good food!

                                                  I've been wanting to come here for ages and i'm so pleased that i finally have! The restaurant itself is beautiful and calming and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and a great mix to choose from depending on what you're in the mood for. Will definitely be coming back next time i'm in Norwich!
