Lovely views, great atmosphere and the staff were fantastic. We had an early booking for dinner and ended up staying and watched the fireworks from the Rooftop in celebration of the Lord Mayors Procession, it made our visit just perfect! Great location will be returning and recommending.

My wife and I visited for an anniversary meal. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Each course was excellent and we were very impressed with the variety of gins that were on offer.
Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely return again.

Staff were very attentive and yet not in your face. The food was amazing and was hot which is always good 😀 did prices were pretty reasonable for the type of establishment but alcohol is a little high but not unexpected. Definitely going to visit again and recommend to all friends and family

Lovely setting, attentive staff and good food, I was disappointed that there was no mention of a Sunday menu online and the things I thought I would like were not available when we got there. The lemon curd bread and butter pudding was to die for

Waiter told me the soup was mixed vegetables. When it came out it was like a Bolognese sauce and too spicy for my taste. perhaps over peppered but definitely not as described. 3 starters came out and we had a further 5min wait for the 4th. not acceptable. prob still be waiting had we not asked where abouts it was. mains were fine and all delivered together. drinks to table where slow but acceptable for volume of customers i guess. Had heard good things about this place but sadly our experience wasnt up to much and we won't be rushing back.

We were in a group of 4 friends. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by a friendly face who showed us to our table and was attentive throughout. Providing blankets when it got chilly outside and eventually went inside for our dessert. The meal was superb for everyone. A lovely evening. We will definitely be returning! Thank you everyone x

Enjoyed a wonderful sunny evening get together with friends at the Rooftop Gardens.
The atmosphere was vibrant and some fantastic views over the city. Thought the choice on the menu was excellent and good value. We went for some interesting salads. Service was great and the waiter even heard that one of us had a birthday and arranged for a large sparkler to arrive with the desert. We were most impressed!

The food was lovely, and the venue is beautiful however be careful when you eat as when the sun is out it shines directly in your eyes no matter where you seat. unfortunately they have no blinds or tint on the glass. but service was lovely (although slow to pay the bill) and it still remains the greatest view in Norwich

We were there on a bright & light summer evening, and the views are great. We sat outside to begin with but decided it was a bit cold and the waiter was happy to move us inside. The food took quite a long time to arrive after ordering, but for us, it didn’t matter too much. Good food, nice ambience.

This is our second visit. The first fathers day 2017. We were met with chaos, bad service, items missed off the menu. This time was superb, interesting menu (we had the fish sharing platter). Brilliant beer, and excellent staff, they couldn't have been better.
Will be returning loved it.

This was our first time we have eaten here. We have heard mixed reviews but overall it was a good experience. The food was nice although my hubby wasn’t overly keen on the veg (courgette, green beans, peas & mangetout) with the roast. I ordered the peanut butter/chocolate cheesecake and something else came which was a little annoying but they rectifed this. We certainly will come back.

The service was brilliant and the venue is great but the food is over priced and poorly cooked. A number of dishes were sold out. Ok for a quick lunch but I probably would not go again for an evening meal.

My friends and I were celebrating the end of our second year at uni. We had a great night, and the staff were lovely! It was just disappointing because upon booking we were not told that the outside area was booked out for a private function that evening. It was perfectly fine sitting indoors, but we had been really looking forward to enjoying a sunny evening outside with the scenic view. It's a shame because this was a special occasion for us, and not something we are likely able to afford again.

Food was nice/good, but not outstanding. I asked for my steak to be rare, but was given one that was medium to well done. I called the waiter who apologised, took it away and said i would not be charged for the steak. The steak was replaced with a rare one, and we were not charged for that item.

Great food, very tasty indeed, service was excellent right from walking through the door- to be greeted at the front desk by Aron who gave us a choice of dining in or out, and our waiter for the evening (sorry can’t remember his name) but very tentative and nothing to much trouble.
An excellent experience all round, my wife and I shall be visiting again.
