Can't rave enough about the food and drinks here. Worth every penny. Can't see myself enjoying food this much anywhere else is Norwich now. Superb.

This was our third visit to 42 King St and the best yet. The cod cheeks with paprika and chorizo, and the thrice cooked chips, were as amazing as ever, but this time we tried the pork ribs and were not disappointed - a HUGE...More

We serve the same menu throughout the whole day. They're suitable for light lunches, and also indulgent dinners. It all depends on how many dishes you order.
