“Busy, busy - but amazing cocktails and atmosphere”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

This great location was very welcome. Terrific service and 'the best' cocktails (reflected in the price). We went before 9pm, so was able to get to the bar!

“Again a good meal”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

We have been here several times in the last 2 years and have never been disappointed, I think we have the same male waiter every time, ( with a lot of tattoos ) and he is always pleasant, polite and cheerful, food is pretty quick too, but we always go midweek so can't tell u what it's like at a weekend. All 4 of us had the steak and as usual was excellently cooked and well seasoned with plenty of flavour too.

“Good deal for £15”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Visited early Saturday evening over bank holiday and enjoyed a sharing platter of meats and cheese with an onion chutney with a bottle of wine. A great deal for £15, food was good and service was too. Pretty quiet, some good deals available when registering on website. i use this chain in other cities and maybe this one could do with a spruce up. glass on roof could do with a clean and maybe a duster here and there would not go amiss.I see some people made comments about smell, but all seemed ok on our visit. Asked about the deal and some staff did not seem to be aware of it so may be worth checking with the boss :). Keep sending the special offers :)

“Gone down hill”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Used to love it here and was always where we headed when in Norwich however it's really has gone down hill. It feels grubby and had a really of putting smell of drains which made us leave last time we popped in for a drink. Such a shame as the food was always good and good value. Hope they sort it out.

“Smelly restaurant, rude staff and families NOT welcome.”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

On a weekend away in Norwich with my partner, parents, and 16 year old sister, we called into All Bar One for a meal. When we walked in, it was virtually empty and we all looked at each other as the smell hit us straight away, it smelled of sewerage. We decided that perhaps it was just coming from the toilets and I was going to ask for a seat on the other side of the restaurant to see if that helped.
As we were asking for a table for 5, another waitress came and asked us what age my sister was, I said she was 16 and I was told that she was too young to eat at the restaurant!! Seemingly, under 18's are not allowed to eat in All Bar One establishments after 6pm. I could not believe how matter-of-fact she was while saying this, I thought she was joking. She was not apologetic about it at all, and didn't seem too bothered about turning away 5 paying customers.
Having looked this up online, she was actually wrong because the website says- Children aged between 14 and 18 accompanied by a supervising adult are welcome until 8pm every day including public holidays.
Anyway, just be warned these restaurants are NOT family friendly and as for the smell and the rude staff...
