Delicious breakfasts, morning coffee and cake, leisurely lunches, traditional afternoon tea and fabulous pre-theatre dinner…

The menu on offer reflects the surroundings; an opulent list of dishes offering something for everyone at all times of the day. Start the day with a leisurely breakfast (from 10am to midday) or one of our speciality coffees or loose-leaf teas and a tempting slice of home-made cake. Then pop back later for lunch, whether for one of the tasty sandwiches or toasts, a seasonal salad, warming soup or a more substantial main course.

Then treat yourself to traditional afternoon tea, with the dainty sandwiches, delicious cakes and pastries and freshly-baked scones created by our talented pastry chefs. Together with the wonderful setting of the House and the grand atmosphere of the restaurant, this really is a must for those who appreciate the finer things in life. And, as The Assembly House is located next door to the Norwich Theatre Royal, the excellent pre-theatre menu, available from 5pm to 6.45pm, is also very popular.

In the 60s the queue for the restaurant at The Assembly House stretched past the railings! Now those days are starting to return, with our team’s reputation for fine food creating a steady following and today’s customers returning time and time again. The quality of the food is superb and the service is warm, friendly and professional. Come and visit the restaurant soon to see what the fuss is all about!

We can also offer rooms and menus for private dining and celebrations. Visit The Assembly House soon to see what we can offer, whatever the occasion and whatever the time of day.

The Cafe/Bar and Restaurant are open Monday to Saturday from 10am onwards. Private dining and Sunday hire can be arranged. For bookings, please call 01603 626402 or
