Celebrating at The Unthank
If you’re organising a wedding, civil partnership, birthday party, christening or other special event we would be delighted to help you. We can accommodate all sorts of different sizes and types of events.
Classic Victorian bar – seating up to 40 – ideal for a smaller, relaxed meal with close family and friends and no pretension.
Airy Upstairs restaurant – seating up to 70 – a self-contained space to gather your guests together, enjoy delicious food and perhaps speeches and cake.
Large relaxed garden (and a covered, heated Courtyard too!) – perfect for a summer afternoon or for some drinks before you sit down to eat.
The Whole Pub – if you’re looking to celebrate with a larger group we can make the whole pub available on selected dates – perhaps combine your ceremony or a drinks reception with a wedding breakfast and a fun-filled evening with music and laughter.
The Unthank is an accessible location in the heart of Norwich’s Golden Triangle, with parking available.
Weddings and Civil Partnerships
The Unthank is an original venue, and can be tailored to suit you. You can include whatever personal touches you want to add, allowing you to exercise your creativity.
We have a team of experienced, friendly, professional staff who’ll provide unobtrusive and capable service.
We don’t insist on any packages or pre-determined menus. You decide how you want to cater for your guests – from Champagne, canapés and a complete wedding breakfast to a beer, a BBQ and a bacon roll for supper, and we will work with you to create a menu tailored to your tastes and budget.
We don’t apply any hidden ‘wedding’ charges – our prices are equally good value whatever the occasion. If you choose to have any ‘extras’, from balloons to a band, you simply pay for what you choose.
Our couples say…
“The staff went way over and beyond the call of duty to ensure everything was perfect. The venue has character that enables you to decorate and really make this place very special”.
“If you are looking to a special but informal away to celebrate any occasion The Unthank has to be it”.
“Thank you for our amazing wedding reception. Can’t fault the service or the food. It was perfect”.
“Thank you so much to you and your staff. We had the most amazing time and your staff are all lovely. Thank you”.
“We just wanted to thank you and your team for a great wedding do! We were looked after so well. The food was lovely including much needed breakfasts the morning after!”.
For parties you can choose from the same excellent range of informal and formal food options – we have great ideas for delicious food walked around to your guests so they don’t need to stop enjoying themselves to eat. We can provide an extensive choice of music or you can use one of our recommended DJs. We are licensed until midnight with later hours available by arrangement.
We can organise flowers, balloons, music, cakes and any other details you’d like taken care of.
If you’d like to gather your friends and family to celebrate a special occasion we can seat groups of almost any size. We can tailor-make a menu for you or you can choose from our monthly-changing menu.
