new year’s eve from frank’s bar and north

Following the mighty good fun that was last year’s sell-out New Years Eve party at North, we’ve decided to get in another great line-up of DJs, fill everyone with fantastic booze, play some cracking tunes and have a bloody lovely time.

Tickets available from both North and Frank’s Bar and there’s a Facebook jobbie here

merry mondays!

hello

Frank's Bar from the frontWelcome to franksbar.co.uk – where we like to live on t’interweb.

Frank’s Bar is a cafe-bar in central Norwich. We have filled our bar with good food, top drinks,  marvellous music and general chilled-outness. We’re happy for you to enjoy Frank’s Bar in a range of different ways,  whether it be with a coffee, glass of wine, tasty meal, or cheeky nibbles we’re really quite flexible. We like to make Sunday’s special as well by offering a fantastic Sunday Breakfast menu (served from 10.00 – 6.00) and a classic afternoon film (screened in the back room) along with the usual selection of great coffee, good papers to peruse and general loveliness.

Because we try to be down with the cyber-kids, we’ve also got a, Facebook page, a Twitter and have gone all Instatastic here.

new menu

Frank's Bar New MenuBaby it’s cold outside. Let’s eat! We’ve got all sorts of goodness ready for you on our new Winter menu including brunches like the vegan and gluten-free sweet potato hash with tahini sauce and the mackerel & harissa fennel muffin. For something more meaty you could try our delicious Norfolk chicken dhal or perhaps the local rump steak served with spicy chips, rocket salad & chermoula, both are dairy free, gluten free and the meat is from a free-range farm in Norfolk. Our Mezze Platter (shown left) is looking rather good with pickled figs, batata harra, baba ganoush, harissa marinated fennel, baby carrots with chermoula, pita bread, salad & sun dried tomatoes offering up a vegan feast! We’ve also added a lovely range of grazing dishes including treats such as baba ganoush with minced lamb, roasted cauliflower with picada & vegan almond aioli and picada chicken wings. There are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options a-plenty and the menu uses the best local ingredients we can find – You can see a sample menu here.

Franks Bar in The Insependent's Top 50 bars in UK
Some nice people at some nice newspapers have said some nice things about us. Nice.
The Independent went and put us in their Top 50 Bars in The UK:

“…Frank’s is a well-loved petite drinking den in central Norwich that prides itself on fantastically friendly service with the laid-back feel of a living room. Perfect for those who seek the familiarity of a pub with the cosiness of a café”

We also had a mention in the New York Times in an article about Norwich’s literary scene:

“After a hard day’s work, writers gather at Frank’s Bar on Bedford Street, the premier late-night spot…”

lovely job
