We went here on a Saturday evening, although it was quite quiet in the restaurant there was still a good ambience. The food was cooked to perfection. I had the scallops to start, duck for main and the chocolate nemesis for dessert. The duck was so tender and I absolutely loved the sweet potato fondant it came with. There is... More

We go there a lot, excellent menu, great food and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The service is great and we never feel hurried. It's away from the crowds

Another great lunch at The Wine Celler. The food is simple but very well executed and the deserts are amongst the best I've had even in very expensive restaurants. The wine is great value and the staff are very friendly. Highly recommended.

We have just discovered a real gem of a restaurant in Norwich. Although this establishment has been around for many years, it was until recently that we have visited it. Our first visit, a few weeks ago, was for lunch when we were part of a group of 16. We enjoyed a very tasty meal and the number of diners... More

There are so many restaurants and pubs in the UK where the owner/manager does not understand that to be successful in the hospitality industry, it helps to be hospitable. NIc and her staff really know their stuff and you will always receive a genuine, warm welcome whether you are a first time visitor or a regular. The menu is very... More

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.
