As someone who has worked in hospitality all their lives, it saddened me to have to walk out of this premises tonight. It would appear that my girlfriend had made the mistake, hardly a heinous crime, of plugging her phone into a socket. A crime...More

Lovely place for either quite drink or good food. Very filling! Never finished a plate yet yummy. Nice little court yard out back for sunny days.

My husband and I were Christmas shopping and decided as we had no children with us that we would treat ourselves, so went on the off chance we could get a table. Bar staff very happy to help and a table was sorted very quickly...More

If you like mussels this place is a must visit! So many different choices to choose from, almost all of which you won't find anywhere else. Chips and mayo the perfect accompaniment.

Found by chance many years ago and return every time we visit Norwich. Usually have the mussels, always have cherry beer. Order from the set menu which is very reasonable, a delightful choice plenty for lunch.

What a fantastic place abusu and vibrant atmosphere. Mussels and cherry beer to die for! The service was great too. A visit to Norwich should always finish with a trip to this great restaurant!

We were attracted by the attractive building and interesting daily specials advertised outside, also the extensive vegan menu. We chose a good time and found a table in the bar. The menu for beer alone was vast and informative, the food choices were so varied...More
