Review on The Last Wine Bar & Restaurant
Originally a nineteenth-century shoe factory, this long-serving Norwich restaurant-cum-wine bar (opened in 1990) still displays a few reminders of the past in its impressive frontage and old shoe 'lasts' inside. The place is split into three different levels, with the bar and downstairs area done out in traditional style, and the spacious, street-level dining room putting on a more contemporary face - think neutral tones, modern furnishings and clever lighting.
The kitchen works to a mostly Modern British menu and typical starters might be goats cheese tortellini, beetroot and watercress salad and hazlenut oli or pan-fried scallops and roast pork belly, fettucini of vegetables, basil, and lemon mayonnaise. Follow with pan-fried rabbit loin stuffed with black pudding, pearl barley risotto and roasted salsify and you might round off proceedings with passion fruit cheescake, pineapple jelly and black pepper tuille.
Visitors can go the whole hog with a full three-course meal, call in for a plate of steak and frites with a glass from the extensive 100-bin wine list, or simply chill out with a drink in the bar.
