About The Dining Rooms

The Dining Rooms’ menu offers British and European classics using only the best local produce. Ignite your appetite with starters such as Potted Norfolk Brown Shrimps with Nutmeg, Lemon & Parsley or Chickpea Scotch Quail Egg with Roasted Pepper Hummus. Follow with mains such as Sticky BBQ Attleborough Pork with Coriander Lentils and Sesame Greens or Spelt & Smoked Norfolk Cheese Pork(less) Pie. The puddings are devilishly tempting creations such as White Wine-Poached Pear with Chocolate Ice Cream and Warm Frangipane with Crème Anglais.

For less formal dining, the airy and relaxed bar area serves food and drink all day to cinema-goers and visitors alike. Bar meals, cakes, coffee and soft drinks are available alongside carefully selected bottled and tap beers, great wines and cocktails. A covered interior terrace and a landscaped outside area to the front of the building are ideal for warmer weather.
With the impressive ambience of Suckling House as a backdrop and the fresh, high-quality fare on offer, The Dining Rooms is a high quality part of the Norwich restaurant scene that you should not miss.

Disappointed with choice of soup - Miso and tofu? Main course of wild boar ragu was delicious as was crème brulee.

Great service and absolutely incredible food! Perfect a quiet celebration. Only improvement would be a little more diverse dessert menu but that more a question of personal taste.

The room was extremely cold and to our surprise we discovered the heater closest to our table wasn’t even switched on. The food wood be described as below average. The baked fish one of our party ordered was borderline tasteless and a measly portion, another of our party ordered the steak which was an extremely poor cut of meat. We have eaten in the restaurant before but this may have to be the last time. On a positive note the bar has a fine selection of wines which we find most enjoyable.

I loved the food, service, atmosphere, everything! My first time eating there and it was for the Valentines Set Day menu which is gorgeous food and stunningly presented. The staff made a real effort to make it a special evening and the decorations were beautiful. One of my favourite places in Norwich, I recommend it to everyone.

The staff were charming, the food very good, and the atmosphere was good the only negative I think was that it was a bit draughty, but then it is a very old building and I feel the cold!

As a gluten free diner there was no replacement for the flat bread that shoud accompany the beetroot falafels, and 5 of those was really too much! Not enough humous to moisten them..I don't think the 'salad' was enough, just composed of rocket leaves.

This is an excellent venue for lunch which works particularly well if attending the cinema either before of after. As Members it offers excellent value for money. The food provided is well prepared and tasty and the service is excellent

Such an amazing place. We popped in for dinner before a movie, the service, food and atmosphere was great! It must be the world's finest restaurant in a cinema.
