Spent an hour or so here over the weekend. There was a live band performing - Blind Tiger - who performed a mixture of their own material with various cover songs and they sounded great.

Stopped here on one sunny Saturday - Norwich at home to Reading - and could really have stayed all day. Very friendly staff, well priced, and a location that is difficult to beat.

Post match drink after away fans had moved on. Loved the old style music. Food took some time to arrive but no complaints. Great location and good atmosphere, friendly staff. A no frills pub.

Iconic riverside pub in the heart of Norwich, close to the train station, the city centre and Norwich Cathedral. Named after the famous book of the 17th Century, the Compleat Angler is on the river surrounded by moorings and plenty of seating for al fresco drinking and dining.
