The restaurant itself was beautifully decorated; it was simple, yet elegant. On arrival we were greeted by the reception team who asked if we would like to put anything in the cloakroom. We were then given the option of going straight to our table or having a few drinks at the bar. A couple of my colleagues were coming from North Norfolk so we had a couple of drinks at the bar whilst we waited for them to arrive.
A well mannered waitress directed us to to our table and took another drinks order whilst we all looked over the food menu.
I chose smooth chicken liver pate to start, followed by chicken breast with wild mushroom and bacon stuffing and marsala sauce, served with buttered new potatoes with herbs and fine beans. Then for dessert, my favourite course of all, was chilled lemon and lime mousse cake with softly whipped cream- oh my god it was amazing!
I have to say the presentation of every course was spot on and I actually left the table full- unlike other fine dining restaurants the portion sizes are generous. All three courses were delicious I finished every single one; the pate was full of flavour, the chicken was succulent and the mousse cake well I have no words.
Delia’s restaurant & bar only openings on a Friday and Saturday evening for the general public. They open from 6:30pm until late, you can opt for either a three course dinner followed by coffee and something sweet for £39.95 per person or a two course dinner for £29.95 per person. Then menu changes regularly I think we ordered from a corporate menu organised purely for the Norwich vs. Aston Villa game. As the evening was hosted by Fosters Solicitors everything was complementary but I think generally it’s very reasonably priced.
After dinner we made our way to the Fosters box to watch the game where Norwich proceeded to win 2-1… Come on you yellows!
To avoid disappointment I would say booking is essential, you can book online or simply call on 01603 218705.
