As if Norwich itself isn't already pretty much perfect, in terms of history, architecture, geography, scale and commerce, it's also awash with brilliant pubs which cities four or five times the size would be happy with. I'd been recommended the PA by a mate so...More

Thought we'd found a treasure. After sitting down with a round of drinks, bar man informed us that in ten minutes the dj would be setting up where we were sat. No signage on the table saying such. No other place for us to go....More

Love the pizza here, and normally good local brewery beers on tap. Even the odd stout which is a plus. Pro tip: have the Sausage Party pizza. And Cajun fries. Mmm.

The Plasterers is a fabulous boozer - it is small and friendly pub. The beer selection is awesome and there's normally always somewhere to sit if you are prepared to scooch and share a table with fellow beer lovers!
