Our beautiful hotel was originally built for the Cathedral adjacent the hotel for Bishops travelling to the area, along with noble men and influential characters of the time. Being situated by the Norman Cathedral the hotel would have played a big part in local events of the area in its earlier history and was even used as a court for local hearings. Throughout its history the hotel has been a meeting place not only for the citizens of Norwich and travellers but for political groups, civic dignitaries, Masonic lodges, clergymen’s gatherings and theatrical figures, many of which have continued to this day.

Our Chefs understand that every guest's needs are different and whilst creating our mouth-watering menus of local produce they will be happy to look after any dietary request. Our restaurant and bar staff are on hand to recommend the perfect wine to match your meal and will do so by course as required.
