The Last Wine Bar & Restaurant
The food is modern, honest and largely locally-sourced with the a la carte menu changing frequently with the seasons.
As well as the food and wine, the longevity of the Last is down to its unrivalled, friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The relaxed ambience has inspired a loyal following across nearly three decades; Norwich without The Last is unthinkable.

After 2 recent cancellations we finally had a booking take place and we were not disappointed. In particular the crab donuts were a delight. Beautifully presented and the flavour was extraordinary. I was also after many disappointments elsewhere enjoyed the lobster. A great find well separated tables, well informed staff and no music.
Service was very good, my food was excellent but my daughter found the vegetarian options were not to her liking
Tasty Sunday lunch with vegan option.
Love this place, booked ahead and had a shellfish platter which was absolutely amazing
The Last has always been reliably top rate. Great to find it survives Lockdown in excellent form.
Menu is special without being fussy. Service is just right. A truly enjoyable evening.
Love this place always a favourite
Food was as usual fantastic. However the service was a little slow and they billed us for a drink we didn't have all very unusual. Put it down as a one off . Will definitely try again.
3 friends for birthday catch up- we had to chase for everything- some things never arrived. Food was pleasant but nothing special, expensive as well, having to keep asking for drinks and so on spoilt the evening a bit - added to the server stating they were not interested in pleasing existing customers but wanting new client base was not helpful! Won’t be rushing back
Anniversary lunch was fantastic
Fantastic food to celebrate a birthday and Father’s Day. Everything was delicious!
We were seated in the basement, which was a very different atmosphere to the two rooms upstairs. We would have very much preferred sitting upstairs and will request it next time.
I took my daughter to the Last as I wanted to see if the venue would be suitable for a larger celebration. Service was efficient and friendly. Ambience was intimate, yet felt buzzy. Food was presented beautifully and tasted equally as good. Wine was very nice. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Lovely food and service, really comfortable setting
Excellent service quality food
Food and service were excellent, and despite being outside the courtyard set-up was great.
Great meal, super tasty and fab presentation. Sat outside in the courtyard. Will definitely be back soon
Food and service was great! We had to sit outside due to covid restrictions and it was a bit cold, we kept our coats on as no heaters. I’d like to go back and sit inside as I’m sure it would be even more enjoyable:)
Great to see this independent restaurant still thriving & producing wonderful food & service!
Patio area tables seemed a little close to each other.
Service great, friendly
Booked here as our first post lockdown outside meal. Did this on the basis of some excellent dine at home meals during lockdown. The covered courtyard is charming and you get the benefit of the sun.
The food was excellent, a fairly small but nice choice of menu. all served by helpful and friendly staff. Will definitely be returning and looking forward to inside dining when we can.
After another long lockdown we were so pleased we chose The Last for our first meal out. Despite the outdoor eating rules the service, food & presentation were all still restaurant standard. The only reason we haven’t given ambience 5 stars is because we couldn’t be inside with all the lovely decor (so out of their control). Thanks Iain and team!
One of our favourite restaurants, so lovely to be back! The covered courtyard was perfect, food and service excellent. Cannot wait to return.
Lovely covered courtyard. The food us always delicious
Delicious food and very pleasant in the courtyard
Excellent food in a peaceful outside setting. The wine was delicious, service really friendly. We will be back. Many thanks to the chef and all the staff.
A really great and innovative menu from the a la carte selection the staff were absolutely great, just perfect service. A great selection of wines to choose from, the Norfolk Winibirri red was a perfect compliment to the venison and steak main courses we chose. The steak was cooked really well and the venison perfectly pink. We finished dinner with a great desert and coffee and a fabulous glass of Jura on which to say Happy Christmas Eve. Our favorite Norwich gem never disappoints. Just lovely. Would always highly recommend.
We ate in the bar which had a nice cosy atmosphere. The staff were welcoming and attentive and the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend.
Amazing Roast dinner .Actually the best I've had in a very long time
Service was fab
We do not eat out very much and when we do it is the same places. We were treated to our meal at The Last Wine Bar (The Last Bar & Restaurant). We chose the Festive Menu. It was terrific. We will go back and thoroughly recommend it.
Excellent food & wine on the whole, fine dining, haven’t been for three years as away but met expectations as always historically a good experience and certainly look forward to a return. Difficult times for everyone but circumstances reasonably well managed.
Really lovely waitress and amazing food ! Thank you:)
Very good food and excellent attentive service, I wouldn't hesitate to go back in the future.
Lovely meal. Covid friendly.
Excellent food and service we are never disappointed when we eat here.
Excellent food, service and wine. Have been here a couple times since it re opened under new management and it’s great, would recommend
Another fine dining experience at The Last and excellent food once again. A warm welcome on arrival, although the restaurant did not have a record of my booking via OpenTable. However the staff member immediately allocated a table and there was no issue.
Quality ingredients and delightful pairing with the wine too
Good value and a delight to dine once again at the restaurant.
Fantastic meal and service. We haven't been to The Last for a while but we will be returning as soon as we can. Best meal we have had from there
A long awaited return to The Last. Warm receptionand impeccable service. Also much patience when deciding upon which wine to order! We had the Festive menu, the food was excellent from start to finish. This made for a very happy birthday!
Mother and daughter bubble lunch date!
We have long been fans of The Last Wine and even more so now that Chef Iain is in charge. This was our first time going for Sunday Roast - a new addition - and I have to say it was absolutely delicious! Just go hungry!!
The roast sirloin came with roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, heritage carrot, kale, red cabbage, cauliflower cheese! and was by all accounts wonderful! The ox cheek that I had was melt in the mouth with delicious black cabbage, smoked mash and heritage carrots. For dessert we both opted for the fig frangipane tart with stout ice cream and poached pear - we were both in heaven!
Such a fantastic restaurant working hard during this lockdown and tier system and doing a marvellous job!
This was my second visit to the last wine bar and it was fantastic.
We were seated promptly and informed about the specials and menu availability. We were given ample time to choose our food and drink and offered more if required. We were given complimentary bread while we were viewing the menu, at this point I considered if it would be strange to ask for lots more as my main. I didn’t want my date to think me strange, so I chose from the menu instead. you should sell bread in the mornings! I’d buy it!. Lewis (sorry if that’s not your name), our waiter, offered recommendations from the menu confidently and even enquired about my usual choices and advised trying something different and unique to them. Absolutely brilliant service, as with my previous visit.
I had a starter and main, as did my company. We both sampled one another’s starters and were very impressed with both. I certainly couldn’t choose between the two! We had the same main, ox cheek, and it was delectable. I forgot to take pictures but I will next time!
The food was fantastic, the service was fantastic, the atmosphere and decor were fantastic. A side note, I loved the artwork on display/for sale. If you want fine dining at an affordable price, look no further.
With COVID being a consideration to diners, I thought I’d give it a mention. The last wine bar offers spacious dining and ample room to manoeuvre around if required. The staff all gave us space and only made contact with us when necessary. Everyone was wearing the correct PPE. I can’t imagine what that must feel like in the kitchen! Hand sanitiser was available too. They were certainly following the guidelines perfectly and I’d feel very safe to dine there again in that respect.
All in all I had a great time and will definitely be going back.
