Last night we went out for a last minute meal to the unthank. The staff were great, extremely helpful. We had a great night, the food was amazing. I would love to say a big thanks to one of the waitresses that went above and...beyond to ensure our night went smoothly, i didn't catch her name but she was wearing glasses - fab service. Will definitely be coming again!More

Food, drink, decor and environment all just perfectly perfect, but really wanted to highlight all the marvellous staff. Pleasant, cheerful, relaxed, really engaged in the event and not one tiny thing was too much trouble. It really contributed to the joy of a very special...day for a wonderful couple who had waited so long to be wed. Will def be returning.More

We found this local pub on Google maps and it was excellent. A small but interesting menu for a local pub with well cooked food. Staff were friendly and helpful and we had a relaxed and enjoyable meal.

Myself and a group of 24 people had a meal here to celebrate our running group and the achievements to be celebrated. From first approaching Kate and her team to arrange this booking I was treated with absolute courtesy. She made the whole process so...easy. Never flapping about last minute changes. In her words she wanted us all to have the best experience. The food was excellent with no moans or complaints, the menu suited everyone. It was freshly cooked and hot! All the staff were attentive and friendly. I would thoroughly recommend eating here and I know that the group will be returning as a whole and individuallyMore

Very upset came out from afar to have a meal at this pub to be turned away 15 minutes before last food orders!

Everybody i dealt with at the Unthank, from my initial phone enquiry, to the evening itself was on the ball! Thomas took charge on the night, but my daughter had spoken to the allergist trained member of staff before hand and the chef provided a...safe meal for my Grandson. My extended family took over half of the downstairs Victorian bar, and there was a large wedding group upstairs and in the garden, but our food came promptly. Was always hot, and delicious. If you're looking for a positive, 'can do' attitude where the service is friendly and the food is excellent. Look no further if you're in Norwich.More

This used to be a wonderful restaurant with outstanding staff who knew their regulars and always had a smile on their faces. Oh how this has changed since Covid. The manager was outwardly stressed and we didn't appreciate her disagreeing with our normal order. It...would appear in her eyes that the customer is never right. She even questioned her only other member of staff about 2 drinks that were on our bill that we didn't have. "As in they didn't drink them or not paying for them?" No, as in we never ordered them! Slow service with no thought for the customer. We shall go back to eating at home- a lot cheaper and more friendly. I strongly suggest sending the staff on a Level 2 Customer Service course. Or just bring back the lovely staff of pre covid!More

I’m sorry no. However we do allow them in the courtyard area and inside at our other pub - The William and Florence on Unthank Road.
