Very good local boozer with good food.

The Rose Tavern is clearly a very popular pub. There is nothing trendy about it and, to be blunt, the decor is probably overdue a refresh.

But the pub’s popularity is a strong point, due no doubt to the fact that the people running it make the effort to put on music, quizzes etc. And they also do a super variety of hot food, which includes smaller “snacking” portions - and how I wish more pubs saw the sense in this.

There was a pleasant and lively atmosphere when we were in and we enjoyed our beer. We also succumbed to some tasty snacks and our small plates of whitebait, spicy chicken strips and cheesy fries really hit the spot. Tapas - UK style!

No doubt there are smarter pubs about - but are they any better?

I doubt it.

This pub is hands down the best pub you will ever visit. The staff, food, entertainment and general atmosphere are utterly wondrous. Anyone living in the local area who hasn’t attended the outrageously good Tuesday quiz, is truly missing an utter gem!! Landlady and all members of staff are luxurious and kind. #Justice4Janet

Nice pint of Landlord, friendly locals
Aug 2019
Once again my young border collie forced me from my armchair into the streets of Norwich.

On entering the Rose Tavern, I noted that the decor was perhaps a little tired, but the bar staff and local drinkers were all welcoming and friendly. The beer was well kept, and daily newspapers were available for visitors.

The dog got a treat from the landlady.

Lovely atmosphere, great beer, fantastic welcoming service - The Rose Tavern is the best!

You don’t find many pubs like this, definitely worth a visit (especially if you enjoy live football and live music of the highest quality!)

We were able to go for a meal early evening with my family who were on holiday with their children. We arrived at 5pm and had a nice meal and drink, before we left at 7.30pm.

Real Ale search in Norwich
Aug 2017 • Solo
A little out of centre but worth the walk. In a housing estate but don't let that put you off. Ale is extremely well kept. Food choice small and pub like but again don't let that put you off either. food looked and smelled great but i had already eaten. Come for the beer. Atlantic, Summer Lightening and Citra all in peak condition. And at least 3 more to choose from. Staff very cheerful. Do yourself a favour and make the effort and get a little out of town for some great ale. I am glad I did.

A pub with character but rather run down
Jul 2017 • Friends
I popped here for a drink one lunchtime recently. I used to go here frequently many years ago, but this was my first visit for quite some time.
I was initially pleased to see that the Rose had retained its look and feel. Too many pubs in and around Norwich have been 'renovated' and have subsequently lost their original ambience. The tavern does have a vintage feel and has a lot of character. However on closer inspection there is a slightly shabby look to it. A lot of the seats were threadbare and the outside furniture was looking particularly scruffy. There was a fairly good selection of beers which seemed to be well kept. However I would be reluctant to order food from here based on the tired look of the place.
I think that the tavern would benefit from a spot of sympathetic decorating so it still retains its character but looks a little less run down.

Great Pub, Awful Manager
Jul 2017 • Friends
Love visiting this pub on a regular basis for pub quiz nights, food and general catch ups with friends over a great choice of ales. The male manager however I've found to be extremely rude, vacant and generally a downer on the great atmosphere within the pub. On one occasion he was extremely blunt when I wanted to pay by card and had no interest in any level of polite customer service, leaving myself and those around me fairly gobsmacked at his behaviour. If he hates his job I'd suggest perhaps finding a new one.
