Quiet around 12.30pm when we got our drinks. Plenty of customers by 1pm, mostly having a meal delivered from Grovenor Fish Bar, which has a very efficient service. All in all very pleasant!

Friendly staff and a quirky very 'instagrammable' interior make this pub a great place to stop off for a drink. Reasonable prices too. The fact that the chip shop over the road delivers here, is an added bonus for many!!

Slightly 'bohemian' bar in a great part of Norwich, but not in the slightest bit exclusive. Brimming with character, and always friendly and welcoming staff. Love this place!
