Customer reviews for The Wildebeest
(((** 25 October 2016 by Emma Mcmurdock from Norwich
Can not fault the food. Serivice was good up until the dessert came and then we were forgotten. We gave up hope on having our plates cleared or being able to order coffee and opted to attend the bar to pay the bill. The biggest issue for me was that there was obviously a problem with the kitchen extract and periodically the restaurant was filled with smoke which was uncomfortable as well as smelly. My clothes and hair smelt smoky for the rest of the day which was unpleasant. Based on the inconsistent service and extract issue I would think twice before returning.

A lovely evening

Perfect for that special occasion with a wide ranging menu stocked with a pride in local produce.
From a seven course taster menu, to an a la carte or dejour selection - so you'll find something suitable for most budgets happy to invest in an evening of fine dining.
Lovely atmosphere, good service. Well worth considering. Note - this is a little way out of Norwich, about 15-20 minutes south of the city centre in rural Norfolk... will need a car or taxi.

It was a very pleasant experience, not rushed and the service was excellent and always with a smile. Food was good and overall and enjoyable evening.

We had a lovely taster menu meal last night - one veggie, one pescatarian and three " normal" menus - they would have also done a vegan menu if our vegan guest had been able to join us. Service, atmosphere and food excellent. This is one of our favourite places to go for a special meal out.

Beetroot starter is amazing and looks beautiful. The whole menu is well put together and it's great that they use local produce.

Table for four in relaxed, contemporary surroundings, highly recommend the seafood pot starter and the fillet of beef was cooked to perfection. A great wine list too.

Top class food - taste and presentation
Only minus - my vegetarian starter was very small for the price
One star lost for ambience as it is quite noisy when busy
