My local as the Summer Lightning strong ale is to my taste. The live music on a Thursday is great,sometimes. I find the Sunday quiz incomprehensible -(pop.). Many seats are showing a glazed finish from long years of service . The loo needs urgent attention.

This was my local for 5 years whilst living nearby and couldn't ask for more. Great for watching sport with very friendly staff. Food was traditional pub grub and very nice for a reasonable price. Quiz nights were very popular and always a good laugh...More

I am sorry to say but really not very good. My friend and I had a different pint of beer to each other and both were indistinguishable from each other, which is rather worrying. Poor atmosphere, very poor beer and a disappointing local.

This is easily the best local pub now in the area. The Food is always excellent and it caters very well for me as a vegi. Bar staff are really nice and the pub quiz on a Tuesday and a Saturday are excellent.

This pub is such a friendly place to go. Especially for sport. Not all jazzed up, which is great ! A lovely local pub in a nice area.

Good pub tucked away in the Norwich back streets. Saw a good band here - Groovapolitan - and they were great musicians. The pub's interior is more than a little tired in decor and could do with a facelift. A choice of 3 or 4...More
