We had read so much about this restaurant and were not disappointed. It's so popular we had to accept a lunchtime booking which actually ended up working well for us. We decided to try the 8 course tasting menu and from the initial 'snacks' to the final dessert the food tasted and looked so amazing. The Norfolk Lamb was my... More

Going to keep this short and sweet; went here for a birthday celebration and had a wonderful meal. Attentive, genuine and friendly staff, high-end but relaxed atmosphere, sublime food.

This restaurant is really on a roll. It's now our preferred 'special night out' venue. Last night we had the 3 course menu with a range of very generous nibbles to start. I particularly enjoyed a main course of stone bass on a delicious pearl barley risotto with parsnip purée and an intense green parsley liquor. Dessert was a very... More

This place earns all its plaudits. Hi end gourmet food in a relaxed setting. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff.

This is the second time we have visited Benedicts. The first time we were not greatly impressed but we decided to give it another shot when a friend came up to stay with us. Unfortunately, this was not a great success either. We found the appetitisers rather mundane and the lack of any leafy vegetables a problem. My friend asked... More

We'd previously met chef Rich Bainbridge at a food festival near to where we live following his success on the Great British Menu and decided to make the journey to Norwich to visit Benedicts following other reviews but also due to his clear enthusiasm for food and humour around that - we weren't disappointed. If it's at all possible for... More

We had the taster menu and it was the best meal I have had in Norfolk by far and well worth the wait for a table. Book early if you want a table you wont be disappointed. I can see why Richard Bainbridge has done so well with his restaurant and the success he had with The Great British menu.... More

We visited on a Wednesday evening, lucky to get a short notice table as seemed full. We had the six course taster menu, and whilst we added a cheese course it was mis-described as we ended with ten beautifully considered and presented plates of clever, well prepared and delivered, locally sourced food. Did I mention witty? No? Well it was.... More
