My friend and I called in for an early drink before dinner elsewhere. Superb cocktails. Very knowledgeable barman who obviously loves his subject. We were by far the oldest people in there (44 and 60) but everybody was very friendly and chatted with us. Will...More

There's a reason I don't bother going out in Norwich, this being one. Over-crowded, full of irritating twenty-somethings who seem to think they have the cool-factor but actually can't dress or dance with a smidgen of style and worse of all those awful trendy-bearded bartenders...More

Had no idea what to expect when went in but the atmosphere was great , staff pleasant and food great. Only thing is after paying they came back and said they hadn’t added on service and asked for extra £20. Other than that would return

Fantastic burgers that melt in the mouth and nachos with chicken strips were delicious. Very generous portions and friendly service. The Grant Holt burger pictured. Good selection of beverages as well.

Yup, this place is ridiculous, but in a great way! Japanese cartoons projected onto the walls, astro turfed faux tropical roof garden, psycotic funk music playing, and so on. Staff always attentive and know how to make a drink properly. Good choice of beers and...More

The bar is a hot spot for the young crowd, with a variety of drinks and interesting decor. It seems that the owner is a fan of 80's popular culture. As it is only placed open during the week after ten it obviously draws people...More
