“Excellent cuisine.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012 via mobile

Excellent cuisine and wines. The main dining room could use some decoration. The main bar room is very pretty and there are some dining tables in there as well. If you're after good quality food and wine that's surely one of the best places in town.

“Good food, nice place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2012

I ate here on Saturday early evening. Myself and a couple of friends were seated in the bar, which was good as it had a nice little atmosphere for a 6pm table. The service was attentive and and quick. Food was very good. Our waitress had a good knowledge of the wines on offer and recommended from a description of what we wanted, very helpful. The only thing I could quibble over was my friend ordered his steak medium and got it medium/well, but this was changed without batting an eyelid.

All in all I would go back and eat again.

“Good food but noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012

Went to The Last Wine Bar with some friends for a Saturday night out. Unfortuately we were sat next to a hen party (who were very well behaved) but can you imagine the noise?? It was so noisy we had trouble hearing each other across our table. The food was lovely, no complaint there at all but if we had been told on booking that a hen party was in we would've gone elsewhere. We had been wanting to try The Last Wine Bar for some time now so was slightly disappointed that when we did finally get round to trying it, it wasn't the easy going, relaxed evening out we were expecting.

“Very decent food and amazing choice of wines.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012

I ate here in June 2012 with my partner and we had a glass of wine in the lively, atmospheric bar and then headed across the way to the restaurant. The choice of wines was excellent. The food was very good too, and it catered well for people who don't eat meat. Big portions, though - I couldn't finish mine!

“Good, as long as your not in a large group!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

Been to the last a few times and have had a lovely time each time. Good food, good service and knowledgeable staff. In fact one of the best steaks I'd ever had was in here. From Ipswich but do lots of business in Norwich and will eat here every time without fail.

However, don't go if you are planning a meal with a larger table. Was in with a party of 12 and everything they are known for went out the window. Service was slow and abrasive, nearly like they were offended by such a large table! The food was OK but not the usual standards. I only mention this because whenever I walk passed there seems to be large groups.

Only go if you are in a group of no more than 4 and you will not be unhappy.
