The meal was full of delightful surprises. The taste combinations were beautifully put together. The service made us feel special with nothing too much trouble. The staff actually cared that you had not just a lovely meal but a very enjoyable evening. We had the 6 course menu which included little tasters before we even got to the starter. We... More

Fantastic birthday dinner. Went with the 8 course set tasting menu for dinner. This was an expensive meal for sure, but we knew that going in. You get high quality dishes that focus on local ingredients and pairing new flavors. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Would definitely recommend this for a nice dinner out. I have also heard that... More

Richard and his team are producing top-class food. This was our first visit so I have to be a little cautious in saying it's the best restaurant in Norfolk but the signs are good. The food was exquisite; we chose a Portuguese red wine which was excellent and the service was professional and friendly. Two constructive points: 1. To prospective... More

In an unremarkable and somewhat austere dining room we had a very confused and fussy meal. It's never a good sign when the waitress has to explain almost every dish on offer. In my view, this foodie destination is trying too hard to justify its high prices. For me, Roger Hickman's is still the best restaurant in Norwich.

We came for lunch and took the fixed price menu. The food was excellent and unusual, unexpectedly wholesome and subtle. A tranquil and relaxed setting, clean and uncluttered but not cold, nicely poised between formality and informality, and not marred by intrusive music: everything conspired to draw attention to the food. The staff were superb, obviously enjoying their work, and... More

For what you pay the portion size is ridiculous, waitress was rude also so I can confidently say I will not be returning.

The chef is a genius! The food is so incredibly delicious and different. The description on the menu does not prepare you for the delight that you will experience with every bite. At last a 'great' restaurant in Norwich that understands what good food is. Somewhere special to go to but equally great for a lunch with friends. I cannot... More

Cannot fault Benedicts. The front of house staff were superb and complimented the food. The quail was fantastic and my Bickling lamb sublime, Looking for the rose wine on the internet as it was a real taste of summer and Benedict`s mark-up was very reasonable.

Second visit to Benedicts and just as superb as the first visit a year ago. The food is excellently prepared and presented, each dish a tasty work of art. We had the 6 course tasting menu, with the wine to go with it - all excellent. My other half does not like fish and there was no problem at all... More

We came to Norfolk for the Easter weekend just to eat here and we were not disappointed! After going to Morston Hall in Feb 2016 and learning that Richard had left, ee knew we had to have another trip to Norfolk to sample his food after seeing him on the Great British Menu. We had high expectations and we were... More
