I'm going to invent an award whether you like it or not - with myself as sole judge and jury. Norwich's Most Customer Friendly Pub Team. And the award goes to ...
OK, dear reader, the Mulberry is just a pub. Shabby chic Adnams house, right in the heart of the city's trendy Golden Triangle. You probably wouldn't go out of your way to go there and might even be distracted by the excellent little brasserie close by, which is definitely worth a visit. But, if you are a loose end and fancy a simple lunch, do, do try the Mulberry.
Why? Because customer service at this level of friendliness deserves to be rewarded. A young team (and quite easy on the eye) engage with you in such a warm way, you'll just want to be warm and helpful back.
Maybe I simply got the right shift but one gets the feeling these folks love their jobs and appreciate everyone who walks in to spend their hard-earned cash.
Can't write in depth about the food as I confined myself to their mixed bean chilli with kitchen-made nachos, which were delicious. Naturally, given Adnams ownership, even the basic house wine was very drinkable.
But, in the end, it was all about the people.
