This smart steak house, located in the heart of Norwich, is the perfect place for relaxed dining at any time of the day. All the meat is locally sourced and delivered daily from their very own butcher, and on a Sunday you can enjoy a really hearty Sunday roast.

your own prime-cut steak on a hot stone at your table, or choose from a
