The Red Lion, Bishopgate
Down by the river, in the shadow of Norwich Cathedral with historic walks, abundant nature (we have our own resident kingfishers!) and all the buzz of the city centre just a few minutes walk away – The Red Lion, Bishopgate is the perfect beginning, middle or end to every day.
Book a table inside to relax with friends, perch at a bar table with a view of the Wensum, settle in on the Chesterfield sofa or enjoy the outdoors-indoors in the conservatory. Outside choose from the traditional front garden under the shade of the Robinia tree, grab a spot on the sheltered terrace or spread out alongside the water’s edge.
An outstanding range of beers and real ales, carefully selected wines, tempting soft drinks and top quality coffees are available and you can look forward to enjoying a sundowner in the sunshine on the banks of the river Wensum
Serving food all day – from 10am – choose from nibbles to grazing boards and hearty main courses – you won’t leave hungry! Our delicious Brunch is served daily from 10am.
