Quaint pub from the outside.... food dissapointing.

After visiting previously, and experiencing two delicious meals (a few years ago) in the cosy and busy pub, I was looking forward to a nice meal. However when we arrived, the place was nearly empty. Sadly, the menu was very limited, with many of the specials from before (which are still on the... read more

Quaint little pub on the edge of Norwich. The staff were wonderful: really friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was nice. The menu was a bit limited (it was a Sunday so I expect most people have a roast). The food was hot and fresh and was reasonably priced, it was just a bit bland and average. The desserts were...

Years ago this was one of the best pubs in Thorpe St Andrew. Unfortunately today, it's got to be the worst. I Went today to catch up with family after hearing that it was under new management, yet again! This pub's had more managers in recent times than Norwich City Football Club. We arrived, on a half-term week which usually... More

Could be a great pub but needs the effort and the personal touch.Go down the road too the Rush Cutters if you want food and service (not much better). It feels just like a chaint I'll take your money and run.

Went and had look at the church next door and then thought we'd pop into this pub as it was a quirky mish mash of buildings. Good range of ales, average prices. Landlord friendly.

We used to use this as a general pub visit but I feel it has now moved up a class bracket and has made it unusable for the drinking purpose. There is an air of snobbishness which deters the local user and it now tends to focus on the food element too much.

Staying at the town house, down the road, we decided to try this restaurant/pub. It is clearly very old and quaint with an aged atmosphere. Drinks prices are average, with limited choice. The menu is varied with something to suit everybody. we found inside a little too dark, but this could be well worth a visit.

Warm welcome from the friendly staff, food is very good, but unfortunately it's still crying out for that TLC.
