Set in a beautifully restored Grade II-listed building, Roots offers some of the freshest ingredients in Norfolk. With a farm shop, bistro and coffee house on site, local produce packs the menu.
Specialising in classic, unfussy cuisine, Roots restaurant offers a fully traceable menu of the finest East Anglian ingredients. Vegetables are grown close by, and meats and breads are sourced from tried and trusted butchers and bakeries.

Choose an international wine, or locally-brewed ales. Desserts span from banana tarte tatin with chocolate and hazelnut ice-cream, or a board of Norfolk cheeses.
Nestled in the heart of the city, Roots restaurant is a 15-minute stroll from Norwich Train Station.

Customer reviews for Roots
((*** 6 March 2017 by Max from London
We came here last year and had an excellent meal. Unfortunately, the restaurant seems to be struggling. We were concerned on the day of our visit by Twitter asking chefs in the Norwich area if they would like to work here, and we received an email just as we were leaving for the restaurant telling us that they were having problems with their alcohol licence but we were welcome to take our own (as a result, we arrived late). The meal itself was disappointing: bread seemed stale and, as another reviewer suggested, toasted to cover up the fact; risotto both cold and undercooked; room really gloomy; only one other table occupied during the evening (on a Friday night!). This was such a shame as everything last year was perfect. We understand that the restaurant is under new management so hope they get a grip quickly and return it to its previous glories. I'm not surprised that it's no longer in the Good Food Guide. Fingers crossed that it picks up again soon.

Lovely meal, friendly service.

Our food was absolutely lovely and the service was attentive. I would recomend Roots to friends and family. A couple of minor things in the building need attention (door handles broken so door to the exterior could not be shut) as these detract from the setting. All in all though one of the nicest evenings out in a long time very gentle atmosphere and again - great food.

Lovely food. Modern but with a twist. Great value three courses for £28. Wine was a little expensive and didn't match the 'experience'. Only downside is that at times the service was slow and we had to attract attention to pay bill and get plates cleared.

Great place serving local food and wine. Surprised it is not more highly rated on trip advisor. We had a lovely dinner and the service was lovely too.

((*** 25 October 2016 by Jo Nolan from NORWICH
Disappointing lunch. Have eaten here several times before and been very happy, but not this time. Soup was luke warm and accompanying bread was rock hard as though it had been badly reheated to disguise the fact it was stale. Should have complained but no one came to ask whether everything was ok, and I hate making a fuss. I won't be going back for a while.
