The first time we visited on a Saturday night we were two of only six people in the bar on a lovely summer evening.

Just come home from a lunch with our daughter to celebrate her fantastic exam results. Decided to try out the new Oaks Bar at the Oaklands Hotel as photos of the Friday night events looks so good.

I was in Norwich for a business trip and for a Thursday night stay I was able to get the suite at a bargain price of £79. It was a bit tricky to find the entrance to the hotel as the signage was rather small hence easily missed. Plenty of parking at the back of the hotel though. Check in...
