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.
The main course meat was excellent as was the gravy, sadly it went down hill from there. Soft roast potatoes Overcooked veg and some unpleasant white puree. Squid was overcooked with soft batter We will return but hope food improves
We had a delicious meal with you on Monday 14 October. Very much like the new Autumn menu. Just one suggestion: We both felt there was not enough choice on the dessert menu. What's missing is perhaps just one dish which is a bit lighter than the options on offer. But still a very good evening, thank you.
Staff very friendly and very attentive but not in an intrusive manner. We have a dietry intolerance and I'd mentioned it on the booking form. The chef made two very good suggestions and was free to give advice on further ordering. We will be back!
The service from beginning to end was perfect: welcoming, warm and friendly. The dishes we had were gorgeous and beautifully presented. My only criticism would be that the vegetarian choice was a little limited although my veggie friend absolutely loved the cauliflower dish! We had a great evening and thoroughly enjoyed it all. Thank you!
Fantastic dining experience, unique menu and special surroundings
Great food and service
The stars say it all ....excellent x
An enjoyable meal and excellent service as always. Surprised that the chicken dish had been taken off the menu that night and the explanation about a future menu change seemed strange... surely chicken is a staple dish on any menu?
Always enjoy eating at The Dining Rooms and look forward to returning for my birthday lunch in November.
Another enjoyable experience, thank you
One of the best under-the-radar restaurants in Norwich. Lovely space, lovely staff, excellent value and good quality food. Norwich has some excellent restaurants, this is one of them...
It was a nice meal although the lunch menu was quite simple and small.
The person I was having dinner with was so attractive I struggled to focus on and eat the food in front of me.
Beautiful venue, we were alone in the dining room which meant a lack of atmosphere. One meal was not cooked as requested so was sent back. My husband had finished his before mine had re-appeared. No malt vinegar available for fries and the wine vinegar offered was no substitute. I thought the food somewhat over priced for what it was and the lunch menu very limited for choice. However, our waitress was good enough not to charge us for the offending meal which was appreciated. The radiator next to our table and the windowsill were very dirty. The glass bottle our water was served in did not look sparkling clean either. I thought the coffee rather expensive for the size of cup. I think improvements would enhance this venue greatly.
Perfect for before the show.
Exceptional food and great service from Maylott (?).
Excellent service. Always an interesting menu
Service was excellent - waitress was particularly helpful. Value for money was 5* thanks to 20% reduction through membership.
The lunch menu is rather limited with snack-like, small portion dishes. Do not expect the concept of starters and main courses. However, the eggs benedict was excellent but would have been more appropriate for breakfast The wine is very expensive, especially by the glass.
Always excellent food and service..thank you!!
Great food, nice atmosphere (music choice was excellent) and top service. Will definitely be visiting for a 3rd in the near future. Thanks Dining Rooms!
Had pre theatre dinner with a friend. Well timed service and lovely food
Excellent meal as always
