Steak was cooked wrong (would of thought on a grill menu they could cook it properly) waiter didn’t write down the order so I assume it was his fault as both steaks were cooked wrong and sides on the wrong plates. Very average at best.

A unique venue due to its city views, delicious food and extremely helpful/attentive waiter. A noisy as we were sat at a table for two but it was next to a table for about 20 people so it lost its intimacy. Overall a pleasant experience

Most of the food was great. Pork belly starter was all fat but they did offer to change it for a different starter.

Disappointing, food wasn’t hot, although it was good. Service wasn’t good either, we felt rushed, waiter wanted to clear plates before everyone had finished. Coffee came before dessert and had cooled before dessert was eaten.

Food was nice enough though disappointed with the dessert. I ordered a cheesecake but when it arrived it appeared to have just been taken out of a freezer, quite solid. I decided to leave it for a while to see if it would thaw slightly. Would probably go again but not have a dessert.

Unfortunately had high expectations of here after being told such good things. First starter wasn’t cooked, then they ran out. Ordered Brie wedges after and they were so uncooked, but the response to that was Brie doesn’t melt all the way through... which it does.
Mains were alright.
Dessert also got sent back as what was advertised as a ‘blondie’ came out as a blueberry sponge cake.
Unfortunately I won’t be back

Our table location was a bit breezy with a draft and the food came out rather cold. however after mentioning to the staff, they rectified this straight away and apologised as well as an apology from the manager. received a complimented desert which was greatly appreciated but I then gave that back with the tip left!
lovely food and good value for money, staff are exceptional and location is amazing.

My first visit here and quite disappointed. The restaurant was very cold and although we asked for the heat to be turned up we were told it was on maximum and there was nothing that could be done. I sat with my cost over my legs all evening- not what I expect on an evening out. The food was nice although portions a little small for the price, the service was ok but overall nothing to write home about. Perhaps we just caught them on an ‘off’ evening.

Family meal on a Sunday. We were able to converse with each other easily across a round booth. Food, including the vegetarian roast was excellent. Only place I have found in Norwich which serves a Ginger Mojito.
Really excellent friendly service. We were served by Francesco who is very efficient and helpful with a delightful manner.
Very good value.
Will certainly use often for get togethers. View of Cathedral and Castle stunning.

Great service from James but drinks a little slow to arrive and also took a look time to bring the bill. Great, tasty food which was well presented however had to send back as was cold at first. Amazing cocktails. Dessert came with a sparkler which was a great touch for my mother’s birthday. Prices could however be reviewed as a little steep? Overall: would definitely return as food and staff were brilliant
