This is the type of bar/cafe that we love. If it's fine dining you're after, this won't be your type of place. But, if you enjoy a cosy and friendly atmosphere (obviously loved by the locals) with very good food, this is the place for...More

Visited this place for the first time today and can see why it's so popular. Very tasty and well-presented full English and a flat white coffee. Friendly atmosphere - a laid back Sunday brunch was exactly what we wanted.

A delicious lunch with my girlfriend; I had the cod and chorizo dish and my girlfriend had a humus and beetroot salad. Great food, well-priced.

Hi, the Sunday Breakfast menu is served 10am until 6pm on a Sunday. After that there are nibbles on offer (like the Frank's Bar platter, olives etc) but no main meals I'm afraid.

Frank’s Bar is a cafe-bar in central Norwich. We have filled our bar with good food, top drinks, marvelous music and general chilled-outness. We’re happy for you to enjoy Frank’s Bar in a range of different ways, whether it be with a coffee, glass of wine, tasty meal, or cheeky nibbles we’re really quite flexible. We like to make Sunday’s special as well by offering a fantastic Sunday Breakfast menu (served from 11.00 - 6.00) and a classic afternoon film (screened in the back room) along with the usual selection of great coffee, good papers to peruse and general loveliness.
