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.

Private Dining

Enquire about our versatile Private Dining rooms where anything from a canapés reception to a formal black tie dinner can be served.

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.
