Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

It’s not often you find a restaurant that exceeds expectations but this place certainly did that. Everything was excellent, from the king prawn starters, the monk fish & bream mains, finished wonderfully off with their baked white chocolate cheesecake & raspberry ice cream. Even the...Pinot blush wine was lovely! I always judge a place by asking, would I go back? Well we ate their last night (Wednesday) and before leaving tried to book for the next night & they were fully booked, which was no surprise, but we will certainly try again before we head home. If you love fish, I think you’ll love Bure River Cottage!More

A very special experience….. by a talented and experienced female chef who singled handed prepares all the food served for your meal. Yes, she has a prep cook during the day for prep work….but your meal, for 2, for 4 is all orchestrated by just...2 hands in the kitchen….no shortage of care and thought behind her well conceived menu which showcases seafood. Not fussy, food prepared to highlight the best flavours of the season, care in the details. We loved engaging the young service staff who have been well trained by their owner chef….established 15 years ago, the restaurant is a gem….don’t miss it!More

Fed up with trying to get to Norwich City centre, park and pay over the top prices we sought out an alternative and found this place. It is a real gem and we are pleased to have discovered it. The appearance from outside is a...bit utilitarian, it doesn’t look like a quality restaurant but what the hell - we came to eat, not look at the architecture. The food was superb, they only serve seafood so if you don’t like fish, don’t waste your time going. Service was impeccable, we don’t like waiting staff who keep asking if everything is OK, makes you wonder if they know something you haven’t found yet. Here we were served and left to enjoy our meal in peace although it was obvious if you wanted something they were always ready to help. They also timed the courses well, no rushing but no sitting wondering if they’ve forgotten you. We both had the tiger prawn starter, then mains of Cod loin and the halibut with shrimp. Desserts were sublime, only issue is picking which one. We thought we got excellent value for money and will have no hesitation returning.More

Great fish restaurant, don’t expect anything else! Huge variety and fascinating menu with tasty options and a willingness to challenge your taste buds. Not cheap but value for money. A simple, clean uncluttered place where the fish clearly comes first and you need to book...well in advance. You can taste why…More

Lovely restaurant serving a range of fish dishes. I had swordfish whilst my wife had sea bream. Both were excellent. We liked the idea of sharing bowls for the chips, potatoes (yes you can have both) and veg. Service was very friendly and efficient.
