“Beautiful BBQ and friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

Visiting Norwich on a weekend away my husband and I decided to book this place as we could see online it was popular. We were not disappointed! Set in the back of a pleasant pub, our table was ready and waiting. The bloke serving was very friendly and clearly passionate about BBQ food. He told us there would be a wait due to having to put more meat on but it was actually fine. Funky cocktail menu available from the bar, the one I tried was delicious. Food is good value, tasted amazing (I had pulled pork) and the ambiance is great. My advice is book a table to avoid disappointment as this place was pretty busy.

“Sensational!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

The Harbercue is simply awesome! Its about time someone in Norwich came up with an interesting bespoke cooking concept and these boys have done exactly that! If you are lucky enough to get a table you will not be disappointed. Go for the BEAST! Suitably named it has everything - Pulled Pork, Braised Brisket and enough mouth watering garnish to leave you taste buds tingling for hours! Well done lads!

“Best in Norwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

We've eaten at Harbercue about 10 times and it's consistently amazing. The pulled pork burger with triple cooked fries and spicy slaw is delicious!! The price is amazing too for what you get. The quality of the meat they use is always top notch and the portions are generous. The brisket is just as good and I've also sampled a few sides like the spicy beans and battered jalapenos which are a good enough size to share between two. This is now our favourite place to eat in the city and somewhere we crave on a regular basis. Nowhere else comes close in terms of quality, portions, taste, price and consistency! It won't let you down.

“Truly awesome smoked meat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

I've lost count how many times we've eaten at Harbercue but it really is absolutely delicious. The regular menu is excellent but specials are amazing. The staff are lovely and everything is reasonably priced, make sure you book so you don't miss out.

“Damnnn good smoked meat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Me and the boyfriend LOVE American style BBQ meat lushciousnesssnnes... so when I tried this place with my friends (the pulled pork burger) I HAD to take him there the following week. We went to America last year and nothing has really compared to the pulled pork we had out there...until this place. A definite must try! And they do good specials too :)
