Review of Rare Restaurant in Norwich, Norfolk, UK

One week ago, it being my girlfriend’s birthday, I decided we had to visit Rare.

Rare is a grill and stakehouse restaurant in Norwich, Norfolk. It is essentially a restaurant within a hotel, being located inside the Georgian House Hotel at the top of Unthank Road not far from the city centre.

Inside there is a very small reception. To your right a bar area for relaxing which we did not visit. To the right, a larger seating area with branded chairs and modern wallpaper. As you walk though, the kitchen is to your right. Keep walking and you’ll soon reach the end of the room with a door to the rest of the hotel.

There is no specific dress code but smart casual appeared common. The odd suit was also present. The staff dressed in conservative black with aprons and were professional and courteous at all times. Menus (available on their web site) appeared quickly enough revealing pricing in line with expectations given it is somewhat higher class without being out of reach of friends gatherings.

We skipped the starters which were priced around £4-£9. She chose the Salmon while I went for the Sirloin. Food did take a while to arrive, slices of still warm French Stick break with butter and sauce kept us going together with a couple of J2Os.

Main course was actually rather nice, served on modern sturdy plates with good quality cutlery. The taste and general quality of the food came across as high, justifying the list prices. We finished on Sticky Toffee Pudding (her) and warm chocolate fudge cake (me).

Overall we liked the place, the total bill coming to £50 including tip. They use a portable card machine so cash is not necessary.
