Better known as "The York" tucked away in the Golden Triangle of Norwich. A tastefully restored pub serving great food and with friendly welcoming staff. Just what a pub should be. We had Sunday Lunch which was as good as any you would find anywhere....More

Popped in to the York on the recommendation of a friend and was not let down. Really friendly staff and a great garden. The food was excellent, including the vegetarian option. Will definitely go again.
