“Very friendly, great food, highly recommended”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We visit Norwich occasionally as we have friends and family here. Number 12 was recommended as a new place to eat, so we dropped in at lunchtime to check it out. We found the staff very friendly and the manager was full of enthusiasm for his new menu. We settled for a sandwich and a drink at lunchtime, and after studying the menu, decided to return for in the evening with our friends for a meal. We had a very warm welcome when we arrived in the evening, the service was excellent and the food delicious. Certainly one of the best meals we've had in this type of restaurant. We'd highly recommend Number 12 to anybody looking for good value, excellent food and a friendly, relaxed dining experience in a building which is full of character. Top marks!

“A fab find in Norwich - near castle mall car park”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Had always walked past this venue and not considered eating there but glad to say I ventured in and was delighted with the atmosphere and the can do attitude. was only stopping for a quick drink and to browse the menu for another time but ended up with scrumptious canapés and a definite return planned for the future. I love to people and plate watch and wished I had been hungry enough for a main!! Friendly staff and very accommodating and not at all concerned we were not having a full menu. Next time I will go by bus and enjoy the wine menu as well as the steak!!

“Highly recommended wine and dine experience!”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

I was very impressed with this Bar/Restaurant and its quality of food and Staff. I have now visited No12 on numerous occasions and haven't been disappointed once. On my last visit i particularly enjoyed the steak; the meat was fresh and verytasty. I am a fussy eater and can be quite picky but No12 has satisfied my food demands on several occasions now and the prices are very reasonable. I will definitely be going back and would recommend this restaurant for a dinner with friends/family or nice family lunch. The décor of the restaurant is excellent and you immediately feel like you're home. The staff are attentive, very friendly and a warm welcome is always had.

I would definitely recommend this establishment for good value wining & dining

Yours
A happy diner from Oxford

“Great for lunch & dinner”
Reviewed 21 November 2013 via mobile

We have now tried Number 12 for lunch and dinner and have had great food and service each time. There is a lovely friendly atmosphere, tasty food and a wonderful view of the castle from upstairs. Looking forward to trying out the new menu on our next visit.
