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. This is our main bar area downstairs.

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 a few 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 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 DJ, you simply pay for what you want to have.

You can take a look at our BUFFET MENU HERE and our SUGGESTED SET MENUS HERE but we’re expert at guiding you to what menu or style might suit your event so please do get in touch and we’ll be happy to help you put together your menu and timings to make sure your event is a success.
