Great food as always- good value; maybe a little slow on the service but such a lovely waitress- maybe just a busy kitchen- love the place.

    Food excellent, portion size much better than last time. Our waiter seemed in a rush to take our order and could do with more training in customer service. Decor is beginning to look a bit tired especially the toilets

    Arrived early but staff put us in the area I specified. Greeted by waitress (153 Claire) and passed over my gold card. She told us that we could have some prosecco as per the gold card promotion. I asked if I could have non alcohol substitute which was orange spritz. After a while she brought two glasses of prosecco! I asked for spritz again she had forgotten I had asked for it. Restaurant not busy at 5:30 but she was very forgetful as she didn't even tell us about the specials until we had ordered and finished our starter! We both chose the tagleitelle bolagnaise for main. It tasted like a tin of oxtail soup had been added to mince. Nothing special at all. I make better ragu than that. Shame that the standards have slipped for food and staff since it first opened. Think staff need to up there game and food needs to be checked by Jamie himself as he would be disappointed from our experience. Chairs stained. Place looks tired. Come on Jamie. Make your Norwich restaurant great again please!

    We sat on the ground floor where the tables are a little bit too close so we did end up unintentionally eaves dropping on the next table. Also my wife was provided with a desert spoon for soup. However the food was generally good as was the service. £10 for a glass of wine seemed a little steep for us ordinary folk!

    Food nice, staff lovely but nearly £10 for a large glass of wine! Blimey! I paid £11 for a glass of wine and a Diet Coke! Because if this I'm afraid it's only 3 stars and it's put us off coming back next time we all meet up.
