Our Story

The Iron House

Opening in 2011, the Iron House has become one of the most prestigious restaurants in Norwich.

The Concept

We created the Iron House to offer a new, different bar and restaurant experience in central Norwich.

We serve innovative, freshly cooked food in an atmosphere that’s friendly, relaxed and contemporary.

We want everyone who comes here to remember their experience, whether it’s an intimate dinner with a loved one, a special occasion with friends or just a relaxed working lunch.

The Building

The Iron House was originally a bakery, before becoming a popular pub, the Ironmongers Arms, in 1869

By 2010, the building had sadly fallen into disrepair. We completely refurbished it, restoring the older parts to their original style and transforming the downstairs space by adding a glazed roof. We also took the opportunity to demolish some rooms added in the 1950s to give the building more space.

We wanted to create an oasis of calm in Norwich’s bustling city centre, while staying true to the building’s heritage as a place of entertainment and hospitality.
