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.

A Devine, imaginative, and completely delicious meal. Every component full of flavour and perfectly cooked and presented. We had side dishes of Baron Bigod cauliflower cheese and creamy mashed potato, and were stunned into silence while we ate our way through this Easter Sunday extravaganza....Just superb!More

First time back after reopening. Faultless, food looks and tastes stunning. Friendly welcome upon arrival and all the staff just go that extra mile. We will be back.

We stopped here for an early evening drink and were not disappointed. Lovely atmosphere, chic surroundings with friendly and knowledgeable staff. It's a very short distance from the theatre. "Under new management " is a phrase often used to draw a line under the past:...the team seem determined to make this work. We walked past again later in the evening and it looked busy with diners and drinkers. We did not try the food but the wine list showed they know what they are doing here. Would definitely go back.More

We had a lovely set menu lunch one Friday. Sebastian was a great host and all the food and drink was excellent. The service is seamless and the atmosphere is great. My friend had the veggie main and loved it. The pre starters and bread...were also delicious. So glad The Last is back and roll on afternoon tea when it starts soon.More

I visited The last Wine Bar for lunch with a friend yesterday. The Last has always held a special place in my heart as it was the first restaurant I dined at after moving to Norfolk 25 years ago. Over the years it has had...its ups and downs and sadly closed last year. Two weeks ago it reopened under a new owner, Sebastian, with a new chef, Mortimer. Sebastian comes from Norwich where he has worked in several restaurants but has spent the last ten years at the Ritz in London. The Last Wine Bar is in the heart of the historic and beautiful city. It used to be a shoe factory when Norwich was a centre of leather and textiles- hence the name Last as in a shoe last. The former owners carried out a major renovation and now this iconic venue has a beautiful interior which is comfortable in the style of a good Parisien bistro. We were warmly welcomed by Sebastian who undertakes the Front of House role. The members of his team were knowledgeable and the service was warm and friendly. My friend and I chose the a la carte menu as it was a special occasion. We both had the halibut with sauce Veronique . It was delicious , a real treat. I had the twice baked cheese soufflé and my friend the scallops for our first course and the rhubarb desMore

We used to go to The Last pretty much on a 3 weekly basis when we lived in Norwich. Having moved out to South Norfolk we don’t get the chance to go out in Norwich so often. Anyway, the menu format has changed with brunch...items, small and large plates, rather than traditional courses. We had a fabulous meal for my birthday. Absolutely delicious, in season and locally sourced food, good sized portions, great ambience and a varied, quality wine list. Huge thank you to the team for giving us a really memorable meal. Can’t wait to be back.More

Went with a group of work colleagues for a retirement do and had pre-ordered the vegetarian options. The Cauliflower Pakora starter was great but the main Grilled Squash was very disappointing. That was all there was to it; no bed of cous cous or rice,...or even chips! I ended up still hungry after the meal and having to steal chips from my colleagues plates.More

Really interesting menu, which had plenty of vegetarian options. We shared tempura asparagus, which was very lightly battered and absolutely delicious. Mains were roasted celeriac with gnocchi and blue cheese, and fillet steak…. We shared hispi cabbage and thrice cooked chips. Brilliant meal. The wine...list is interesting and I particularly enjoyed a glass of rose from Winburri vineyard in Norfolk. Delightful serviceMore

We went for a celebratory dinner. The atmosphere was lovely and the greeting very friendly. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We had a romantic booth for two down in the cellar ! The service was exceptional. Thank you to our server, Amy, and...to Alex the restaurant manager. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and would not hesitate to return. In fact we are already planning another visit.More

This place has potential. The food looked and tasted good, but it was cold when it arrived. The service was slow and inattentive. No good for a business lunch. Staff muttering to each other behind the bar rather than serving tables tends to wind customers...up.More

We had a really good meal at The Last. Well cooked and presented food (octopus to start was delicious and venison main also cracking and served nice and pink). We were served by a very professional member of staff(didn’t get her name I’m afraid) who...gave us just the right amount of attention and advice. Nice lay out and atmosphere, very well priced too.More

We had not been for a while but decided to have lunch. As we did not really fancy anything from Al La Carte menu, we opted for small plates. So disappointed with belly pork. Really fatty, hardly any meat and tough. Belly Pork is wonderful...when it melts in your mouth. Nice waitress asked if everything was okay. We said no, and explained about the Belly Pork. She said she would feed it back to chef. Hope she didn’t mean it literally. Nothing else was said, but we decided not to have a desert as we were disappointed. Even more disappointed to be charged for dish hardly eaten, well mostly uneaten. It doesn’t take much for a restaurant to just take the cost of dish off the bill. As it was, they missed out on other drinks, deserts and coffee, and of course a poor revue. I am aware people do try it on, but this was our anniversary lunch. We came back home 30miles away and had one of my nice puddings I had made. Will not be returning. Plenty of nice places where we live, but gave Last WB a chance.More
