    The food was well presented and tasty but portion size was a bit meagre. I still felt hungry after the meal.

    I wanted to share my experience about the Sunday lunch I recently had at The Red Lion Bishopsgate in Norwich. From the moment I walked in, the warm and inviting atmosphere set the tone for an enjoyable dining experience. The traditional pub setting combined with the friendly staff made me feel right at home. The Sunday roast I ordered was top-notch - the meat was cooked to perfection, the vegetables were fresh and flavorful, and the Yorkshire pudding was a standout. The portion size was generous, and I left feeling satisfied and impressed. Overall, I would highly recommend The Red Lion Bishopsgate for anyone looking for a delicious and cozy Sunday lunch in Norwich. I will definitely be returning for another meal soon!

    Service was great. Friendly staff and very pleasant environment. Menu quite good with vegan options. Food tasted very nice but the main meal portions were tiny and no vegetables or salad provided which was desperately needed. We had the vegan gnocchi. Not much bigger than a starter although price was pretty standard. Not good value. Has put us off returning I'm afraid.

    Perfect place for a lunch with four ladies. Seabass was excellent. really good choice of meals.. Portion sizes are not so huge that you feel you need to roll home, there was definitely a wee space left for a gorgeous Bakewell tart and raspberry ice cream. Would absolutely recommend and am definitely going back.

    I’m at the Red lion lots. Usually excellent roasts but yesterday’s wasn’t. Overcooked, fatty beef, cold vegetables and slow service. Usually the service and staff are incredible. Hopefully it will be better next time. I’d recommended eating there and I felt disappointed I did as it wasn’t the usual standard of food or service.

    Food great. Just service was a little bit too slow ! . Probably just down to them just being really busy as it was a nice bright day and not quite enough staff ! That said it would not stop me from going again or recommending to a friend. Place has nice relaxed feel and prices fairly reasonable.
