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.
Excellent food and great service. Would highly recommend
Always love the atmosphere of the vaulted ceilings. A beautiful place with delicious food, attentive staff. What’s not to love? ❤️
Very tasty meal- beautifully cooked mussels and and an excellent steak.
This is the perfect place to have lunch - and if you can see a film afterwards, that's the icing on the cake!
We choose this venue for a lunch stop after a walking tour around Norwich with 16 people. We were not disappointed in any way and good value for the Sunday lunch which was presented very well, hot, on time and to a high standard. In fact one a member of staff (Sarah) presented a very interesting talk on the history of the building which was a bonus to our walk and was greatly appreciated. What more could we ask for !

We love going to Cinema City. The food is always excellent, the service is first class. It is one of our favorite places to meet and have a very relaxing evening.
Excellent food, good value. Service was a little bit slow but it was a busy Friday night...
Excellent all round service and food top end prices for good food.
We had 2 courses each. Three out of four were excellent and up to the Dining Rooms' usual high standard but my lamb rump was tough and arrived at the table tepid. If I had had more time, I probably would have sent it back but I had a film to watch. I noticed that nobody asked us how our food was.
Very good - our waitress was particularly so - congrats
Fabulous food. Great ambiance and service. Thanks guys:)
Staff were very helpful in providing information on the menu to one of our party who is lactose and gluten intolerant.
The Dining Rooms is a very welcoming and pleasant place to dine. The service was excellent, and the staff knew the menu well. The food was excellent, which made me and my date very pleased indeed. Being in an older building gives the place a great atmosphere. I would definitely recommend The Dining Rooms to friends and family, and I myself would happily come back. It is also very convenient if you are going to Cinema City for a viewing.
Had a lovely meal can not fault anything. Looking forward to returning soon.
Super evening with friends, in a lovely relaxed atmosphere and good food! Would highly recommend 😊
The food was delicious and the staff attentive and pleasant. Because we are members we had 20% off the bill which made it good value for money too. We then went on to a film and the entire evening was wonderful.
The food here is very good, as a veggie I would appreciate more than one option for my main. My partner said the lamb he had the other day was one of the best meals he's ever had - so cannot fault that! Staff are great. I have a cinema membership card, so price is great! Just one more veggie option would be perfect!
We had a delicious lunch in Cinema City's delightful crypt dining room. The service was attentive and friendly, without being intrusive - a great place to eat!
Delicious food and lovely ambience
The only minor criticism, which would not take away from the 5 star review, was there was no ice for our initial drinks!
Very enjoyable Sunday lunch
Very good food and lovely atmosphere. We will return
We had a delicious meal in a relaxing atmosphere. Cool despite the hot weather, great food, excellent service.
Excellent meal and service as always. Loved the caramelised white chocolate mousse
