Frank's Bar from the front

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.

winter warmers!

Frank's Bar New MenuWe’re very excited about our new Winter Menu! There are plenty of breakfast and brunch options like the vegan sautéed wild mushrooms & tarragon on sourdough. For lunch you could try the roasted sweet potato filled with kidney beans, chilli
and onion, the pan-fried salmon with l
emon & sultana pilaf, preserved lemon & crème fraîche, or perhaps the local flat iron steak served with chimichurri, chips & rocket (dairy and gluten free) we source our meat from a free-range farm in Norfolk. Our Mezze Platter (shown left) is a vegan delight with falafel, garlic roasted tender stem broccoli, giant couscous tabouleh, toasted focaccia, roasted red pepper hummus, mixed leaf salad & olives. We’ve also offer a lovely range of grazing dishes including treats such as lamb shawarma, lamb koftas or roasted butternut squash salad.  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…”
