We have a range of dining options at Maids Head Hotel. From award winning food and drink in our fine dining restaurant, to a delicious afternoon tea or even a drink and a light lunch in our Maids Head Bar or one of our comfortable lounge areas. You can now also enjoy alfresco dining in our pretty Inside Out Courtyard
Our 2 AA Rosettes WinePress Restaurant offers a fine dining experience in the heart of Norwich. Head Chef, Simon and his Brigade, prepare seasonal a la carte menus bursting with produce from local suppliers. The WinePress was a finalist in the Taste of England in the East of England Tourism Awards.
There is also the option to choose a lighter bite from the Casual Dining Menu which can be enjoyed in the relaxation of one of our lounges or perhaps in the Jacobean Maids Head Bar.
Our Winepress Restaurant has recently been completely refurbished and guests have the option of choosing from our a la carte menu or tasting menu where the dishes have been expertly paired with complementary wines. Or choose our highly popular Traditional Sunday Lunch which can be enjoyed with family and friends.
“The food was absolutely spectacular. All the menu choices were well thought out and had interesting flavour combinations. And every course was delicious. It’s been a while since any of us had a meal quite that good. We all had a fantastic and memorable time, and will definitely be coming back!” Izzy January 2021
For a little indulgence, try our award winning Afternoon Tea which can be enjoyed either in the comfort of one of our lounges or in the WinePress Restaurant.

Maids Head Bar
An inn has operated on the Maids Head site since the 13th century and the original inn was called the Molde Fish or Murtel Fish Tavern. The name the Maids Head gets its first public mention on 22 November 1472 in a Paston Letter, when John Paston recommends the inn as a good place to stable your horse. The Maids Head has had a long history of looking after visitors and local people including the Black Prince who was entertained by the people of Norwich when he visited in 1350 and Katherine of Aragon when she visited in 1519.
You can enjoy food and drink in the Maids Head Bar from 10am to 11pm daily. Food service ends in the bar at 10pm but a 24 hour menu is available for guests staying at the hotel.
To allow for better social distancing measures we have moved our Bar to our newly refurbished historic Yard Bar and we will be providing table service. Drinks can also been enjoyed in our pretty courtyard
Maids Head Courtyard
Enjoy alfresco dining in our newly redesigned pretty Courtyard, open daily from 10.00am – 8.00pm. Set in the heart of the hotel it provides a tranquil space to enjoy coffee and cake, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, or if the fancy takes you, just pop in for a cocktail. Outdoor heaters available for when the evenings turn chilly.
