Kemps at Norwich Theatre Royal
Food was lovely, but there was a big different on portion size between the meals, the burger was 3x the meal of the sea bream, but can't fault the service, we just missed the Christmas songs.
Enjoyable atmosphere with great service and good food. Very friendly staff. Would definitely go again.
We had a tasty meal served efficiently and with a smile which was perfect for our pre-theatre lunch
I was meeting friends I hadn't seen for six-and-a-half years, so I wanted somewhere informal where we could chat. The menu was really good and I treated myself to a dessert, which was faultless! Will definitely be going again.
Another very nice pre theatre meal. Thank you. It was delicious and a lovely way to relax and chat, contributing to a great evening.
Great meal pre theatre and able to keep table to have coffee and dessert at interval
I was very satisfied with our choice of meals and service from staff was excellent I will definitely come again next time I am in Norwich
Booked the table online to dine before watching the full monty. The menu isn't extensive, 3 guests had sausage and mash which was a hit, 1 had the pasta dish looked colourful and enjoyed. I had the fish which was a fillet but unfortunately had bones and had to request the crumb topping be removed for allergy reason.
Desserts were all alcohol based which is a problem if you have an allergy. The staff were helpful in altering the dishes that contained allergens.
The group will book again when next attending the theatre
Friendly staff great food
Accommodate your needs
Not too intimidating
good experience all round and to have our table for the interval so we could have drinks
The restaurant was full and it was a long wait for the meals to arrive, meaning we had to rush our deserts as we were attending the theatre. I thought 1hour 30 mins before the performance would have been long enough to eat. I noticed several customers having to rush and pay to reach the performance on time
Despite the restaurant being fully booked, the service was quick and all food options available. Staff very polite and professional.
Good place to eat before theatre, but also excellent for interval drinks/sweet at your table.
Pleasant local staff.
Had been 2 Kemps several times b4 and always enjoyed the meals. Variety always good. Waitresses went out of their way 2 b helpful 2 myself, husband, daughter and 11 year old grandson with regards 2 choices on the menu. Service was very good and we didn't have 2 wait long between courses. Woukd recommnd Kemps Restaurant 2 anyone
Great place to grab a meal pre-theatre. You can arrange to have dessert/drinks/coffee at your table during the interval which is very civilised.
We had a pre theatre meal on Saturday and were very happy with it all. Staff were efficient and friendly and the food was good.
Disappointing food, although based on price we paid, not bad value.
Our first visit (pre-theatre); we will definitely come again as it was a lovely part of the evening. Desert in the interval very civilised. Vegetarian main course not as interesting as it could have been.
Pre-theatre evening meal. Service, food and ambience of restaurant very good.
Staff very pleasant but service very slow. Had to ask for the restaurant week menu even though we had booked via that link. Food OK but nothing special. I had taken mother there for a treat and thought restaurant week would be a good opportunity to try the venue out. Would not return.
Tried Kemps for pre-theatre meal and really enjoyed it. Not rushed at all and the service was efficient and non-intrusive. There was the option to have desserts served during the interval along with drinks which several people did and we would do next time. It was nice to know that the table was reserved for the whole evening so you could return during the interval.
Food was of a high standard with local seasonal produce and the price was very competitive with other local restaurants.
Would definitely eat there again.
Great for a pre theatre dinner, great service too. What is also good is that you can pre order your drinks etc for the interval which allows you to keep your table.
visited prior to a show. food delicious. friendly staff
Very convenient and well timed for the theatre that evening. Menu was ok but not a massive meat selection having only chicken or a burger. Nice to be able to re-use the table during the intermission.
The service could have been better, i.e. waiter didn't check if I wanted ice in my cold drink, I had to ask what the soup of the day was whereas other customers were told straight away what soup was on offer & they didn't ask if the food was ok until I had finished (luckily it was ok as would have been stone cold if I had waited for someone to ask). The cold drinks were expensive for the amount you received & I think the restaurant would be quite noisy if they were busy. On the plus side the quality of the food was fine & the location was perfect if you were going to the Theatre afterwards.
Pre-show evening dinner plus it was a great idea to return to table in the interval for drink/dessert. Pre-show dinner not shown in your questionnaire.
We used the restaurant prior to seeing a show. The convenience was the reason for selection. The staff who attended to us we were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately my wife's meal had a human hair draped across it. Once we pointed it out, the meal was swiftly removed and replaced with a fresh meal - and we were not charged for this meal. The food was OK.
Excellent pre-theatre meal. Good to have the table kept for the interval.
Good food, great staff, lovely start to an evening at the Theatre. Only slight problem is tables being too close together. We come here quite often and will continue to do so
Service was very good and the food was excellent. Noise level at just the right pitch
Dine here whenever we visit the theatre usually once a month .. always pleased
Great food and service. Really enjoyed the experience.
Went for pre theatre dinner. Good service with a reasonable set of menu choices. Staff generally young and enthusiastic.
The fact that you may use the table for the whole evening is good, coffee, Ices, drinks at a table in the interval is civilised.
We are likely to repeat the exercise.
First visit to Kemp’s and it was a little disappointing. The service was poor aside from one lovely waitress - people were served before us despite arriving before them. Also the food was presented well but was quite bland. It was handy for the theatre but would likely not dine there again.
Lovely pre theatre meal relaxed environment, delicious food, friendly staff. A great start to the evening
Really lovely meal with good service that allowed us 3 courses in 1 hr before play started
I was disappointed with my recent visit to Kemps at Theatre Royal Norwich. The menu wasn't inspiring - I struggled to find something I liked. I also really miss the hand cut chips which used to be on the menu - frozen just aren't the same. However, the staff were very good.
Very enjoyable pre theatre meal. Limited menu choices but good options. Relaxed atmosphere with excellent service.
Enjoyable meal friendly staff but the pre starters came at the same time as first course which we complained about overall the meal and eve was good
Had a very good vegetarian pre theatre meal.
Returned at the interval for desert.
