As always, excellent on all counts. Been lunching at the Wine Cellar for years, never disappointed. Last time had mashed potato with chopped spring onion (made into a rosti), red cabbage, gravy and pork chop - delicious, £9.95.

Hidden away just a few yards from the city centre the Wine Cellar was a complete surprise to us. We visited on a Saturday lunchtime without a booking but managed to get a table in a busy restaurant. We were seated in the rear room which seemed a bit larger than the front, and there was plenty of room between... More

We visited here on a Friday lunch time in half term. It was busy but not noisy. My friend had suggested coming here as she has several allergies but knew she could find fresh and healthy food here. I decided on the Arnold Bennett omelette (spinach, smoked haddock and Parmesan) which came with hand cut chips and salad. I did... More

Had a lovely meal nicely presented. Starters were Binham blue with poached pears, pressed pork belly and smoked salmon. Mains were Sea Bream, honeyed duck and chicken, all very tasty. The only odd thing was that by 8.30pm they had run out of prawns and steaks! Service was very friendly and attentive. The cellar ambiance was comfortable but not quite... More

Actually walked past the entrance twice before realising where this bar / restaurant is. Just popped in for some post shopping / pre-dinner drinks. Very chilled out, decent selection of wines at reasonable prices. Would not hesitate to return for lunch or dinner as menu looks good.

Not our first trip to the wine cellar and certainly won't be our last! One of Norwich olden gems. Such a lovely old building that gives the bar so much character. Very comfortable bar with lots of drinks on offer. The 60th was set further into the cellar though the back where an almost private room was offered and live... More

My wife and I have lunched at The Wine Cellar many times before and expect to do so many times again because we like the menu, the wine list, the central location and the general ambience. We make short visits to Norwich fairly frequently and want a light lunch soon after we arrive so The Wine Cellar suits us perfectly.... More

Visited Norwich with my brothers to surprise her for her birthday and when we said we were coming here for lunch she was delighted. Having then sat down for lunch we were not disappointed! Great food, great service, great atmosphere! Can't wait to revisit

Came here with my partner for Valentine's Day. The food was absolutely stunning and brilliant for the price. The wine was also really good and great value. We shared a bottle of the porcupine which was delicious. The venue is really unique but the lights were too bright which spoiled the atmosphere somewhat. Would highly recommend.
